Buttons — The Bump
Snarky and T-TTC


Bought a cheap pair of comfy pants tonight from Target that has two ornamental buttons that actually came with a spare button. Which I found odd, but got me thinking about all the spare buttons I've accumulated over the years but have never ever used.

Have you ever used the spare button?



Re: Buttons

  • I can say that I have actually used a spare button or 2.
  • Nope, I have quite the spare button collection going.

  • Yes.  I don't use them for their purpose though.  I use them in craft projects or in hair bows. I will take all spare buttons.

  • I have the collection...and some shirts that have lost buttons. But I really never think to actually fix the shirt. Maybe that will be an early new year's resolution.
