My GrandMa Buttons

Hello everyone! I'm a new member, living in Moscow (Russia). I'd like to show you a part of my collection of Grandmother vintage buttons.

As far as I know most of them is very old (more than 60-70 years).

Macy thinks she is a Button Floozie.

Friday, March 27, 2009


I'm so excited to get to be a Button Floozie!! I'm surrounded by buttons, all colors, all sizes, all shapes. A few days ago I found lots of buttons in an antique store in Georgetown, Ky. Many of them had to come home with me. As I started to go through them, I discovered a lot of them still held thread. That made stories fly through my head. Who sewed those buttons on, who wore the clothes, who cut them off, or did they get lost? One story is taking root, I'm wondering where it will take me.

A Good Swap Package Includes Buttons

The swapping fun really never stops at my house. A few posts ago, I mentioned the swap I hosted at my blog. Remember? Well. I had another lovely swap partner. Mary at Vintage Patina. She sent me a lovely package. Look here if you're curious about all of what Mary sent me. Amongst the lovelies were buttons. *grin*
I love me some darling pink and blue buttons.
I, too, sent Mary some buttons.

What kind of floozy would I be if I didn't? :)

A Buttony Day.....

My name is Karen (aka Recycled Rita) and I am a button floozie. I have tried to deny it for a while now, but there is no avoiding it! I am madly in love with buttons and have grown quite a collection...
My friend has been helping me find goodies for my inspiration kits that I sell on etsy and she brought this wonderful sewing drawer full of buttons to me on friday:

I was happy the rest of the day! Here are some close-ups... pretty colors....

Lovely Whites......

And sparkly rhinestones.....

OOOoooooo La La! Then today, while shopping at the flea market with me, she pulled out a baggie and said "you seemed to like those buttons the other day..." Are you kidding me??? and she got all of these for $1 and won't let me give her any extra!

I will be keeping some and selling some on my etsy. I love to pair my love of vintage postcards and ephemera with buttons. Here are some button cards that I just listed on my etsy site today:
Well, I would love you to come visit me on my blog, I am having a giveaway that ends today...would love to have all of you come join!
Thanks for listening...I am feeling so much better! Hee! hee~ karen....

Trays of Buttons…

Hello everyone, I'm not sure if I'm more excited over finally getting some of my buttons posted here or if it's about showing off my lunch trays I found in the thrift store. :0) When I saw them I could see and smell that BIG hot roll that they always served with our lunches..I wonder if they still do that? Anywho...here are three trays of buttons..most of my stash is packed right now due to this move that seems to be taking forever!!! LOL Thanks for looking and I'd love for you to drop by for a visit. :0)

My new treasures!

Today my grandmother had a surprise for me!
She gave me two pieces of fabric, some cotton lace and a lot of lovely buttons!
Aren't they beautiful? I'm so happy!I already have some new ideas! Can't wait to try them!

What would you do with these?

Hi Everyone. I am also a new floozie. I have been following for a while and am loving all of the button creations, button organisation and button finds that have been posted about. I must admit that I am quite new to button loving as well so I don't have a huge collection of buttons except the spares that come with my new clothes that I have been collecting for years.

I started making fabric covered buttons for the accessories that I could make them into but I'm now really enjoying just the buttons for themselves. I send buttons all over the world and I often wonder what happens to them. It doesn't always feel right to ask.

A friend of mine attached some aeroplanes and helicopters to her son's kindergarten hat so he knew it was his amongst all the other matching ones. One of my customers said her husband wanted my green robot buttons on a shirt, and another order was going to be made into accessories such as key chains and things. The ones at the bottom were going onto a green coat.

I'm curious...what would you do with buttons like these?
