A Few of My Favorite Things...

Buttons.

I love them and there is just something about a handful of beautiful vintage buttons that makes one wonder...where have they been? Did they adorn a lacey wedding dress or a itsy bitsy baby gown? Did they dance upon a lovely ladies high heeled slipper or did they clasp together the edges of a lovely mink stole...

I love the smooth feel and luminous color. My favorite of all are Mother of Pearl. All shapes and sizes! I have a lovely little collection that just make me happy to look at them!

I really enjoy seeing all of the wonderful treasures that many talented hands have made out of this incredible bauble. Enjoy some of my all time favorite snoops into others creative minds!!


Love this lovely, shiny bauble...

  13. Have to agree with you here. So many things you can make with buttons! I used to collect them when I was young, stopped somewhere along the way but maybe I should start again. I wonder what happened to my old collection!!
