National Button Society - National Button Week

March brings us the National Button Week.
   
 (from my button collection, a grouping of small Victorian Celluloid buttons)

From my buckles, buttons & dress trim collection I purchased in England
  
and from France


 (buttons on original button cards from the collection of Tara Boynton)
 
 From the Home page of the National Button Society website
"Households have long followed the practice of snipping buttons from clothing headed for the ragbag. Do you remember playing with your mother’s—or grandmother’s or great-grandmother’s—button box or jar or tin? The impulse to collect is a basic part of the human psyche, and buttons have been admired and collected for centuries. Button collecting was recognized as an organized hobby through the founding of the National Button Society in 1938."  To read more, click on this link: NBS.
  
Here is one of the postcards I've created for 
button presentations:

Bead & Button on-line magazine, offers several great articles on buttons.

 If you are interested in learning more about the National Button Society (NBS) and button collecting, please visit the NBS website  or email me directly.

Happy Button Week!
Button hugs,

Vintage Buttons

I've got quite the collection of vintage buttons. I try and add them to my projects so I'm always on the lookout for different colors. This time, brown.

These have been added to a gadget cozy as the 'tie closure'.


Does anyone know how old these might be?
