Photo Challenge – Button

Button, button, who’s got the button?

This week’s Photo Challenge is BUTTON. Like many others, I am rather obsessed with buttons, especially those of the vintage variety. And more specifically, the vintage buttons from my mother’s collection.

However, lately I have acquired a different button obsession. Our old house constantly requires attention. One of the continual little projects has been updating the shabby (or  modernized) button light switches. We’ve acquired quite the variety of light switch covers. Such as….
