Tami's buttons: a world class treat!
It is always fun when you find your so-called "tribe" -- for me, those people are, of course, button floozies! You may recall I recently took a trip to Kansas City and enjoyed the hospitality of Tami, and she is, among other things, a world-class button collector!
I am SO going to be on the lookout for these vintage note cards!
Tami graciously allowed me to photograph -- and gave me permission to share with you -- some of her collection. Thank you, Tami!
First, let me say that she has her buttons impeccably stored/arranged/displayed.
Because of this -- the enjoyment of her button collection is multiplied!
There is an office/room devoted to her collection, the likes of which most of us can only DREAM of having!
An antique-lover, she has some beautiful vessels in which to display some of her prized buttons.
In the middle of this bowl (above) is a shell that was used to create some buttons -- isn't that a fun visual piece?
Beautiful button art pieces...
and something fun and whimsical everywhere you turn!
