For Christmas 2010, I went to Morocco for a week. For Saint Stephen’s Day, we went through the markets and Souk in Marrakesh. My eyes caught sight of lovely buttons and I though they’d be a reasonable souvenir. Not too pricey and easy to bring back. Sadly, I was wrong about the former. They buttons ended up cost about €2 each. Of course, the expense was [almost] worth it for the laughter my husband enjoyed when he realized my blunder. I’m usually very careful with money, fiscal numbers, and currency conversions, so it was about time I made a mistake. But they’re really lovely.
I have a thing for adorable buttons. They’re nice souvenirs and mementos, but also practical. Here are some other favourites.
Here is my button box, in which they’re organised by type.
LB helps me choose quite a few of them.
Do you have a thing for buttons too?
