I found this wooden "tray" at the Hospice shop for £1 and thought I could use it for a few photos - so here are some buttons to start it off - many of these are from my mother's button tinSmileSmile
Many thanks to John and Robin for their User Awards yesterday - they were much appreciated. SmileSmile
Thanks for looking

Love how you have sorted the buttons. This makes a beautiful image. I gave my neighbour all my grandmothers antique buttons because she uses them for wonderful quilts........Sandy

I used to have a jar full of buttons but gave them to the charity shop when I moved house - looking at this arrangement I am now regretting my good deed!!

Mum had a button tin. A large metal dried milk tin from the days of WWII.
Whenever she needed a button matching, we would tip the contents on to the table and begin the hunt for as near a match as possible. There must have been thousands of buttons in that tin...

Looking forward to seeing what other uses you have found for this traySmile
