I was playing in my button boxes yesterday and decided to take a few photos of some of my favorites. I'll be sharing them with you over the next week.
I don't know much about the buttons I've collected over the years...which might be Bakelite, or some exotic material. I can identify mother of pearl or bone or shell, but I know what speaks to me.
I love the unique shapes, a flash of detail, but mostly, that flair that tells me it's "vintage". Of all the buttons I own - and there are many - the old ones will steal my attention away from the new ones any day.
I'll visit again soon and share more of my favorites. In the meantime, you can see what I'm creating in my studio by visiting my blog. Don't be shy. Be sure to say "hi" when you stop in. I love visitors at Brynwood!
