I love buttons....especially old buttons!
Aren't these beautful?
I needed many buttons to embellish my sewing projects, thought I'd be heading to the fabric store for some but decided to go through my button stash and found everything I needed. I have a pretty good stash but my cousin gave me my Aunt Fran's button collection this past year - what great buttons! Many are old, even found some bakelite ones, some newer. I spent way too much time sorting through buttons but what a wonderful morning it made after I finished up my sewing. Eventually I'll organize all the buttons by color family and store them in canning jars so I can see them on the shelf whenever I'm in the studio....but for now back into the boxes.


  1. What a great collection of buttons! I love buttons too and have mine organized in old canning jars in my craft studio. Happy sewing!

  2. OMG they are just wonderful ... lovce the colours! Love buttons! The jars sound like a wonderful idea - hope you post a pic when you do this!

  3. I don't have your collection but Junkee's here does. I'm just glad to have an alternative. Lucky you!


I love your comments - thank you!
