A Vintage Button Collection







Recently, I recovered these charming notions from a mysterious Christmas tin.
You can imagine my delight when I opened its lid to find hundreds of
vintage buttons in various textures, colors and sizes. 

What would one do with such a find, you ask??

Keep your eyes peeled--I've got hot glue and a masterpiece in mind.

What would you do with a button collection?

My mum is currently knitting me a big chunky jersey (it's winter here in NZ) and I am so looking forward to choosing some buttons for it - so you know what I'd do with these!

Just discovered your blog - would love it if you popped by mine sometime.

what a great surprise! i love discovering new treasures. i once bought a book at a used bookstore simply because i found an old black & white photograph of a little girl bending over and pulling her skirt up. she had a little ruffly diaper on underneath. it was hysterical!

as for the buttons, i say mix them up and sew them to all sorts of coats and dresses. it would look so cute!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
