Buttons, a farthing a pair!
Come, who will buy them of me?
They’re round and sound and pretty,
And fit for girls of the city.
Come, who will buy them of me?
Buttons, a farthing a pair!
-Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes

This jar, chock full o’ buttons from the 1930’s (including glass and figural ones!), is my latest find on Craig’s List. The bonus? Little did I know they were housed in a blue atlas jar. Life is sweet.

Today’s post is in celebration of baby Piper due in November. Tammy (Sarah’s mom) and I were able to see our granddaughter move for the first time today via an ultrasound. Her tiny hand reached up towards her face at one point while our knees melted in praise.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13, 14

We’re looking forward to sharing many a nursery rhyme with Piper—and when she’s older, we’ll find a nifty craft project for those vintage buttons.
