I love my large vintage MOP buttons... I have been busy painting buttons which is always hard to find time for. My eyes can't be tired, I have to be calm and relaxed, and I need an uninterrupted stretch time... Hard to get all three at once...but I did get cottages and haunted houses done and am working on some birds and Santas... Usually if I am calm and relaxed, I'm asleep. It's not something I can do while jumping up to take care of other chores.
I do have a tutorial on my blog on button painting...
I am downstairs in the studio looking for something and just had to stop and play with some of my vintage buttons which I still just love. I am cleaning out the studio but the buttons are staying with me for a while longer.This is a jar of my 1920-40's colored buttons I took a lot of old clothing
How about my big coat buttons still on the paper
My 1800's sewing bird I purchased in Paducah Kentucky in the 1990's while at the National quilt show
I am going through all my button drawers and found these vintage cloth buttons that came off of an old ladies coat I am thinking.I have had them for years.
I hadn't thought much about them until one button collector I read said she covets the old cloth buttons and always looks for them. And I found some in my collection. I always want the rhinestone or mother of pearl buttons
Sure wish I could attend the button show in Springfield Missouri this month
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie firstname.lastname@example.org
