My name is Emily and I am a BUTTON FREAK!!!!!




I am so thrilled to be a “Button Floozie” and to have found like-minded folks who are addicted to vintage button collecting.

My name is Emily and I am a BUTTON FREAK!!!!!

I could spend hours digging through bags, boxes, tins & jars of old buttons. I don’t care if they are covered in dirt ~ they will wash up just fine ~ and sometimes those dingy mud-caked buttons turn out to be “priceless”!

When someone tells me their Mom or Auntie or Grandma has a “button box”, I start to salivate. I love to hear stories of how they would cut & save the buttons off of their babies’ sweet dresses or coat buttons off their dear husband’s jackets. All buttons have a story...by participating in this group, I will have a chance to share my button stories.

Love, Emily XOXOXOXOXO

I especially like the way the spool of red thread is neatly tucked into the red button section!

I thought of your blog when I received a baby boys outfit from a crafter on Etsy.com. Attached to the outfit was a tiny close pin with a paper flower glued onto it. The center of the flower was a tiny button!

Anyway - did you know you were the very first person to post a comment on my blog when I started. Thanks for that!
