Button Love

I know that this post would be more appropriate for Valentine's Day. But I just happened to sort through my button collection this weekend and discovered a beautiful way to keep and display all of my pink vintage buttons. 

The heart shaped chocolate box was a treasure I saved from my mom when I was a little girl. When I was in Grade 6, I remember baking heart-shaped sugar cookies and decorating them with pink icing and presenting them to my school teachers in the staff lounge. I also distinctly remember lining the bottom of the box very carefully with wax paper. To this day, I am so grateful that my teachers returned the valentine's box back to me once all of the cookies were gone.
