I have a little crush on white pearly buttons!
I collect them... but have never really used them until recently. Many of my buttons were my grandmother and mother's... and I can remember some of the clothes they were on!
Here's an easy-peasy pretty VALENTINE BUTTON HEART PICTURE DIY to show off some Valentine love...

This button heart is so special to me! If you look closely you will see little heart buttons here and there.
When my daughter was a little girl, I loved making her clothes. If a pattern called for buttons I usually added little hearts. I always told her these were to remind her that my heart was so full of love for her.
And even though she is all grown up these hearts now remind me of those wonderful days when a little girl would throw her delicate arms around me and give me the sweetest kisses and hugs and say, "Mommy, I love you!" SIGH!
