Mounted buttons

I was lucky enough to be invited to the button sale of a collector who was getting rid of some of her more common, crafting buttons; most of them were vintage.
She and her husband took the time (unbelievable!) to put buttons on cards for the sale.
That's a button lover for you, right?
I just knew you'd enjoy seeing the buttons I brought home with me!
I bought some fabric and notions, too...
...but of course the buttons were the most fun to dig through!
How about you?  Any button purchases lately?

Utterly enchanting!
loved the 'ivory' ones at the top.
My mother used to have a button box --such fun to hunt through as a child.
I now want to knot a cardi for my granddaughter so I can use cool buttons!

Oh MY!!! This must have been like going to button heaven! You found some really lovely ones!!

val said...

those are lovely! I don't live in an area where I can find buttons like that...which might be a good thing, I think I'd become obsessive!

Yes unbelievable all those buttons carded up like that. I have never in my life seen this many buttons in one place. Now here in Alaska I don't even see buttons unless I go to Jo Ann's 75 miles away. I buy a lot of my vintage ones on Etsy. You like the red doll house huh? I made that and if I ever get tired of it will keep you in mind!! Nan
