"Growing up, Christmas Eve was always spent at my maternal grandma’s house. She passed years ago, but this time of year I am always thinking of her," reminisces Shanna at Restoration Redoux. "One thing I have of hers is her sewing basket. I was looking through it the other day and found a package of vintage buttons. They had been in there forever, so I decided to make a button ornament with them."
It never ceases to amaze me what kinds of trash can be turned into treasures by imaginative people. Take Kimberly, from Seredipity Refined, for example. After a recent windstorm, she saw sticks and twigs scattered on the ground in her neighborhood, and thought, "These would make great Christmas tree ornaments!"
