Wednesday Wives Tales~Buttons

Counting Buttons:

1. Husband-- Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, doctor, lawyer, Indian Chief.

2. Home--Big house, little house, pigsty, barn

3,What type of wedding dress will you wear--silk, satin, velvet, cotton, wool.

4. Grabbing hold of buttons on your clothing when a hearse or death carriage passes, will allow to you to cling to the living, rather than death.

5. It is unlucky to button your garment from the bottom up~start at the top!

6. If you miss a few buttons when you're buttoning up your shirt, it means a surprise is coming.

7. Buttons must be removed from the clothes of the dead and the clothing sewn (use no knots) or pinned to keep the spirit from coming back.


  1. Ah, that last one is creepy...just right to think upon this time of year. I'm feeling in the mood for a book that has a good haunting plot to it. Any suggestions? ;-D

  2. Those were wonderful, Rose Mary! (I'll think twice from now on about buttoning up from the bottom! LOL)

  3. I enjoyed these Rose Mary. I love Wednesday Wives Tales!

  4. These are great, Thanks for sharing them with us...

  5. Oh Mary-I loved this one. I'm not sure I have ever heard of any of them!
