Some of my favorite things

One of my favorite things is scouring the thrift stores and antique markets for buttons and vintage sewing notions.  I came across these pretty metal rose buttons.  The card is a little tattered but I will enjoy using them in some of my altered art and other button creations.
 This is one of my altered matchboxes.  Actually, my very first altered matchbox.  I hope you enjoy it.  I included some of my favorite things.  Dress form, pins and beads, buttons, vintage measuring tape and thread spool and vintage linens and doilies.


What are some of your most favorite things?

The buttons are so pretty, your box is amazing with all of the bits and bobs attached, you are so clever :) I am using buttons on dog toys for eyes at the moment :)

If I weren't into glass beads and vintage jewelry...I'd definitely be into buttons. I DO love them. I like that they can be tiny, beautiful works of art yet utilitarian. Love your blog. So glad I found you. Hoping to be in a swap sometime. ; )
