That is a really wonderful, touching way to keep your grandmother's memory alive . . . and share those memories/ momentoes with your family.

So I never got the whole 'button thing' different strokes I guess...

BUT, this is beautiful! Beautifully executed and such a wonderful way for you all to remember a special woman. Truly lovely!

You are brilliant and so is this.

Lovely and inspiring.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

A beautiful project, and a beautiful story.  Good for you for finding a way to both "keep" and "share" your memories and buttons at the same time.

That is such a sweet idea. I have a button collection from my grandma and great grandma. I never thought of making something with them. I've always used them here and there in projects.
