Count Your Buttons Day :D

posted on 20th of october, 2013

After my World Bread Day blog, I got curious as to what other cool, off-beat holidays there are.

"Count Your Buttons Day" is upon us - celebrated on October 21st!!! How excited are you? Oh come on, just because there's no history behind this holiday nor an actual purpose, it doesn't mean it's totally meaningless. Buttons themselves have a good, long history and they're very useful in keeping clothes from falling off :P

I found some sites where it's suggested that on this holiday, people count the buttons on the clothes they're currently wearing, whereas other sites suggest that people should count the buttons they have at home in jars. Have your pick & enjoy this "Count Your Buttons!" collection of mine :)

P.S.: I now have only one button on me, that of my pair of jeans. Good luck to those wearing a dress shirt and a jacket :)

Yes exactly my first thought, but I thought it was because I was very hungry!

Lol about that saying!

Do you know there's a saying ' I wouldn't pay you in buttons or maybe it's pay you in washers ! ? Anyway they are lovely button images deserving of successful sales. David.

Great collection of images - I have a jar of buttons I'll have to remember to photograph it and get it online in time for next year!

You have the best collections Eliane!

The KING is hilarious!

Yes Susan, definitely write about it even if there's no heart day (google it though) - that would be a super-romantic blog

Eliane, obsessed with buttons now?
I guess check your other blogs about that editing thing...
Posted by Elianehaykal on October 21, 2013
The weirdest thing took place: the layout of my blog was all off (placement of photos, their order, etc.). I had to edit it again! But it's really curious, who has access to editing blogs other than the author??
The "disordering" must have happened between the last time I checked (around 2pm) and now (4:45)!

Nice collection! Actually I hate buttons, my favorite clothes are without buttons, but it's a must to have them in some pieces! :P
Also I have a big pile of those extra buttons that come with the clothes, it will be like a puzzle when you need the right one! lol
