Some of the shells on the beach are round and flat like a button. I'm looking for them (hard job but someone has to do it.) When I have enough, I'm going to use them as buttons for a sweater. My friend's husband has a small drill and he said he'd punch two holes in each one so I can use a needle and threat to sew them onto my sweater.
