Does anyone have mason canning jars sitting around doing nothing but collecting dust? I have several of the blue ones that my hubby kept buying at rummage sales. He would bring them home and put them in a box in the barn. One day I brought them in, washed them and put my button collection in them. They have labels on them as to what color they are. Some of the buttons are my mom's and some are from my Great Aunt Peggy and some are mine I have picked up here and there. I proudly put them on a shelf to show off. Most of the jars my hubby gave less than 1.00 for at the rummage sales. Don't they look nice holding all my buttons instead of dust?
