My favorite buttons - #7

I have a wide variety of black glass buttons -- and the unique shape of this one makes it a favorite! It's shaped like a boat, and then incised and accented with gold paint.
On the reverse, the cut-out button hole.

These buttons are sometimes mistakenly referred to as "jet" -- the actual jet ones are rarer, but from about the same era as the many small black glass varieties.

I hope you've enjoyed celebrating National Button Week as much as I've enjoyed showing off some of my favorite, beautiful buttons!

Oh, that blingy white one! I want! One just like it! The one on today's post is unique, but doesn't grab me so much. But, oh what I could do with that sparkly white one! On a hat, on a scarf, make a bracelet or necklace....on and on.

Gorgeous! It's so nice to come in from the garden and go through the button posts with a cup of tea. Lovely!

Hi Laurie,
Not sure if you remember me , it has been a very long time since I've been active. I am looking to catch up with my blogs emails etc this year. I have recently lost my dear husband of 57 years. I'm still processing it all, but I am thinking I need to get back to some of my hobbies etc. I loved doing the needle book swap several years ago and wondered if you are still doing swaps?
I hope that you are doing well.
