Oh, Snap!

Don't under estimate the pleasing aesthetics
of those humbler members in your button jar.
This yo-yo brooch went to Pat and the fabulous brooch she swapped with me is HERE.
Mine is a just a tad smaller than hers.
Hope she still finds it an even exchange. :)

Now I have some ideas for all of the hundreds of buttons I have. So many buttons and so little time.

Love your creation!
