My grandmother did not have a built-in closet. She had a tall wardrobe with a small space for hanging clothes, and the other side had several drawers that came up halfway. What intrigued me was not her lack of storage, but the colorful jar filled with buttons. Mind you, she was not a collector, but a practical woman who reused everything she could, including buttons from clothing that was repurposed as cleaning rags. So, when the Jar of Flowers stamp set made its debut, I couldn't wait to get it and recreate my grandmother's jar of buttons. What do you think?

Obviously, her jar was filled with more vintage buttons, most of which had faded in color.
This sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set. The apple never falls far from the tree. I think that is the adage. Either way, I like that this one focuses on the "best" part of someone. Here is another photo of the Button Jar Card:
