Recently a parcel of lovely old buttons arrived in the mail, courtesy of my Mum. I love rummaging through piles of buttons, seeing all the pretty colours and imagining what the button was used for. My favourite is the tiny red one in the middle - I remember seeing this button in my grandma's collection from about 20 years ago.

I've started sorting some of the buttons and sewing them onto cards.... stay tuned for what I intend to do with them!


  1. oooh it's a great thing when Mums' tidy out cupboards and drawers isn't it? I'm eagerly anticipating a big bag of unwanted goodies from my mum's linen closet at the moment! Enjoy the buttons, Dee x

  2. I LOVE beautiful vintage buttons! I've got a tall jar full of them and usually they make me happy just by sitting pretty. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for them!
