I found a button I had purchased from a vender at a quilt convention once when I use to go to the quilts shows,before I realized i'm not a quilter just takes entirely to long for me I like instant gratification on projects. I love to embellish material .My favorite color is blue so this button stole my heart
I made an altered art necklace and have the button attached to the chain however easy removed and the button not damaged in any way
Are you playing with your button stash any ? please show them
I am determined to make me a necklace out of mother of pearl larger size buttons
I found a book with simple instructions and then went to Joan's fabrics to get the coated wire they suggest to be used and was shocked to see price of this special thread $15.99 spool. Guess i'm behind times. I didn't have the fastener I need so guess it's back to Joan's
I want it with all the large white buttons I just had to show some of my pretty mother of pearl belt loops and I love the older rhinestone buttons. I have more carved mother of pearl whites
I am hoping to attend the Missouri Button Society show at Lake of the Ozarks this spring .I don't want to stay 3 days but would like to know what all is involved in the show
If you attend the Button Society shows tell me the procedures of events
I'm posting this as information so that, if you don't have a gmail account and have been following Button Floozies on Google Friend connect, you won't wonder where the blog disappeared to tomorrow!
For what it's worth, even though I obviously do have a gmail account, I still use Bloglovin' to follow all my favorite blogs and I really like it. You just type in Button Floozies in the search bar and click Follow This Blog.
I hope no one goes away as a result of this really dumb change that Blogger is making. Anyway, here's that information:
(From Blogger:) In 2011, we announcedthe retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
Years ago I bought these buttons on Ebay. They were on the original card and their origin was the USA zone of Germany so they can easily be dated to right after WW2 . They are molded glass with a mirrored backing. I have tried many times to use them but they always have been too glitzy or too large.. But I have found the perfect home for them and still have a five left.
I made fabric journals of my needlework project with the theme of corsets. As you can see I used my lovely heart buttons to hold the "pages" together. Each of the pages is faced with an ad from that time period.. I'm so glad I found a "forever" home for my beautiful old buttons..
I'm off to London on Thursday... DH has his list of sites which includes lots of museums, galleries and churches. My list includes many antique shops, markets, Victoria and Albert Museum, and looking for buttons as well. Found two shops on the internet... The Button Lady in Hampstead and the Button Queen on Portabello Rd. Any others?
DH and I will meet up in the afternoon for a meal at one of the old pubs on our list...
I have this card of antique La Mode metal buttons with gorgeous purple glass middles. Anyway I am thinking of removing them from their original cards and putting in a glass covered candy jar with other beautiful buttons. Now should I leave them on their card? or do you button collectors think they need to stay on their original cardboard card that has bent edges. Need your advice, thanks from Janice
I have these fabric buttons I call them in my big jars of mother of pearls buttons not knowing what else to do with them,
They are handmade I do believe and beautiful. I bet they were the closure for a beautiful evening jacket worn over a beautiful tulle and satin evening gown back in the glamorous days of the 1930-1950's?
Just day dreaming .
Do you know anything about buttons like these? please tell
