Beautiful buttons are just the nicest thing to add to a project so you can imagine my absolute delight when a most lovely friend of mine, who knows I enjoy all things crafty, gave me a bag full of the most gorgeous vintage buttons. Just look at these beauties! Aren’t I lucky!
I’m a bit of a button hoarder and have several jars and boxes of nice buttons, including ones I have inherited from family and brought in places like France, but some of these have a real WOW factor! You can completely imagine them on a 1940’s box coat or adorning a shiny mink coat can’t you.
A beautiful button can turn an ordinary crochet project into something special and unique! But how am I supposed to pick from all these beautiful buttons? Though I must confess some of them are whispering designs to me…
I love that these buttons have a history about them; and I love that these buttons are going to get a lease of new life when I add them to something new.
Thanks again Alison! These buttons will all be put to good use I promise! And just one day I’ll finish off that tea cosy for you; though I’m thinking now that it perhaps needs a button on it somewhere!
