Button Love



The fun thing about being a button collector is knowing that the next button you buy might be even prettier than the last. I got a bunch in the mail on Saturday. My favorites would definitely have to be the brown tortoise rhinestone bar buttons. The iridescent peachy ones are from Britex in SF, I picked them up on Saturday when I stopped by for the velvet for Saturdays class.

I'm laughing as I write this post, my 10 year old boy just sat down next to his 4 year old sister and said, "you need to take a bath ya Hobo!". Poor thing, she didn't know enough to be offended. I guess I better go handle that!

Hi Lisa,

Wow, those buttons are gorgeous. I have a love affair with rhinestones, too! I fell in love with one of my moms rhinestone necklaces that she wore to one of her dances back in highschool in the 40's. I have that necklace, and I've been trying to collect since then, but I only got serious this past year. If you know a source for rhinestone anything, I'd appreciate a heads-up. Cheers to collecting vintage treasures...inlcuding the buttons!

Hugs,
Meri
