This is the button collection in all its glory. What a wonderful sight!
Number one storage solution is glass jars.
I have 16 glass jars which have been sorted into colours, with the exception of the jar with the burlap which is mixed and waiting to be sorted.
Number two is the Cath Kidston button tins that were bought for me as gifts feeding my passion for both buttons and Cath Kidston.
The top picture shows the buttons that came with the tin, a real mixture of sizes and pastels.
Number three is the small jars that have been little gifts and are a delight, adding a little charm to the collection.
Number four is the rather large plastic boxes, there are 15 of them. They have been sorted in to colours, as well as wooden toggles and vintage buttons on cards. They do need an alternative storage solution as they are not very attractive and detract from the beauty of the button itself.
Finally my number five is wooden canisters that I stuff buttons into, usually vintage buttons or those that I consider special.
I hope you have enjoyed your little tour around my five storage solutions to my button collection. I have surprised myself how many I have. I am once again joining in with Amy at Love Made my Home for The Five on Friday link up. Why not pop over and join in the fun.
I am having a giveaway to celebrate 100 followers , today is the last day so don't forget to leave me a comment on the giveaway post.
