While unpacking I came across this shadowbox I had made when I was 24 or 25 years old. My grandmother had recently passed away and one of the items I had acquired from her estate was a big box of buttons. I recall my mother going through the box of them with me and telling me that this button was on a coat of hers, or came off a certain dress once worn by her. I decided to hang it, it my bedroom. It is not the most creative piece or the most visually appealing (I am pretty sure it is not my husbands favorite piece) but it has meaning, it reminds of my grandmother. If only these buttons could talk. Imagine all the places they have been and seen...makes me wonder. Is that silly?
