Hi! I've just joined the rest of you Button Floozies in this group of button lovers. I'm jenclair of Bayou Quilts, and like you, have that curious fascination with buttons.
The last few days of July, when I was trying to clean up one of my messes, I had to clear a bunch of buttons off my cutting table. While putting them away, I began looking at some of my button resources - which resulted in several posts on buttons, both old and new. Buttons that just find their way to me whether or not I have any use or need for them, cute or unusual buttons, vintage buttons, buttons with and without cards, embroidered buttons that I want to make, and Dorset buttons that I have made plenty of.
Here are some of my vintage buttons. They are often homely, but so sweet.
This one isn't old, but it is beautiful, and I love it.
A closer look.
I love the cards almost more than the buttons...Because I'd had buttons on my mind, when my granddaughter came to visit last week, I knew buttons would make a great pastime.
We mailed one of her cards to her mother, and she took the other one home when she left. I love the butterfly and dragonfly buttons...won't they make a nice collectible some day?
I've spent quite a bit of time here at Button Floozies, and I'm still discovering all kinds of interesting links, projects, inspiration, and member blogs!
