Lucky for me, I get a lot of help from my husband. I've amassed a sizeable collection of beads, buttons, & other misc "jewels." The bulk of my collection has come from my grandma, plus many more from garage sales, thrift stores, & clearance racks. My husband sorted my collection by color for me one evening.. It is so much easier to grab a jar of blue buttons and find what I want, than to open a tote of everything mixed together.
Since we are limited on space, the button & bead jars sit in the open. The jars are pint size canning jars that were destined for the recycling center. We found that old peanut butter jar plastic lids fit perfectly on the mason jars. Hooray for re-purposing & recycling!
