Cologne Ad Button Cards

I was lucky enough to find a whole bunch of these Hoyt's Cologne ad cards. The colors are so so pretty. My colletion of "favorite" buttons have begun to overflow the old muffin tin that I've been storing them in so I decided to use a few of these cards to sew a few of them to. As luck would have it the cards file perfectly long-ways in an old loaf pan that has 5 of them connected all together. You know the ones right?

We've got a busy weekend of birthdays, dinners and parties but I did plan a couple of hours Saturday morning to venture out on my own to see "The Button Lady", about 40minutes away. I've heard of her but never been to her home where she apparently has thousands of buttons. My favorite are the opaque glass buttons with the iridescent sheen, well, pretty much like the ones above. I'm already conditioning myself to stay within a budget. Can't be presentless for my 5 year olds birthday party Saturday night. Somehow I don't think he'd understand that I overspent at The Button Lady's.

I like the way you embellished the perfume card! I really love buttons too. And can't wait to hear about your visit with the Button Lady! With a name like that, she must be fabulous!

That is just so pretty. Can't wait to see it in person. You just find the most adorable things. It's not luck... it's a talent.

I've been meaning to call the button lady too. You will die when you see all the buttons...I mean it. Let me know if you want some company. I would love to go.
