Oh, yes, oh yes, oh yes. I loved my Grandmother Hill's button box! I wrote a rather surreal beach poem that ends with her button box. Thanks for the memory and the nicely written haiku. :-)

Your haiku really moved me as my grandmother's sewing room was one of my favourite places! Lovely!

great haiku. it immediately puts an image in the mind. i remember going through the button box to find a match for the buttons i would inevitably lose every week. lol.

I remember the magic of watching my granny turn scraps of this and that into dolls. The absolutely best part was when she would find the right sort of buttons for the eyes. I couldn't wait until I was grown and would have my own yarn basket and button box.

Thank you.

Wonderful surprise -- my Grandma had a button box too and I used to love to take it out and sort through all the wonderful colors and styles. Thank you for such a wonderful haiku!

A fun memory. My great aunt had a button box. My grandmother mentored me about being a grandma. Such a joyful haiku.
