The seasons of life come and go. With each season we gather keepsakes that become sacred markers of where we've been. This season of my life takes me on the hunt for treasures of remembrance. Come along with me as I gather souvenirs to keepsacred.

Mom's Button Collection
A few years ago I gladly inherited my mother's button collection.
A seemingly ordinary thing can prove extraordinary if you look closely. These buttons are a perfect example.
It's wedding season and I am planning to make a few of these adorable hanky favors. I thought the buttons may work for some of the trinkets.
I have a great collection of vintage hankies already, so I'll be laundering them gently and pressing them to perfection. After that, the fun will begin. My sister has promised to help me - her talent and creativity will guarantee success.
