Butt'n, oh no you di'nt!

The decorative appeal of a ton of buttons in one big glass jar looks cool but the first time I searched for specific size and color, I realized my anal retentive organization compulsion really did serve a purpose.
Now sorting buttons by color and happy to do it.

I did the exact same thing..bought a huge load of buttons from the thrift store, put them prettily in a jar, and then realized how totally useless that was, and proceeded to put them in a tray to sort. (Unluckily for me, an under-waist-high visitor strayed into my sewing room, and somehow knocked the whole tray BEHIND the sewing table, in a completely inaccessible until I move EVERYTHING spot. I STILL can't use the buttons.)

Wouldn't that small critter be just the size to retrieve buttons?

"You're going to the button mine, kiddo, and don't come back until this bucket is full. FULL, I tell ya!"
