Vintage Buttons

By on September 5, 2012

Yesterday was Hannah’s first day of middle school (!).

Everything went well, and I survived. ha ha!

She did too, but I knew she would.

fall scents for your home

Being an only child, she loves school and being around lots of kids, so she was looking forward to it!

All of my apprehensions~(will she have someone to sit with at lunch? Nice friends in her classes?) were put to rest.

Big sigh of relief.

After I dropped her off, I ran several errands.

I did not plan on stopping in at one of my favorite consignment stores though.

It just lured me over. 😉

One of my favorite finds of the day, was an aqua mason jar filled with vintage buttons!

Double bonus!!

What is it about buttons?

I’ve loved inspecting and running my fingers over them ever since I was a little girl.

I took them out of the mason jar, and started sorting them by color.

I kept thinking, I am really OCD, or super organized…..

 

The more I sorted through, the better it got.

Beautiful:

 

Unusual:

Ginormous:

Simple:

Crested:

Each one with some kind of history behind it.

A baby outfit.

A fancy dress for a special occasion.

An outdoor coat with the hint of cold mornings.

A peek into decade fashions.

I will be bagging these into simple packaging and selling them at the Deepwood Market.

My own stash from my grandmother is in safe keeping.

You can read about that post here.

I found several other great treasures yesterday.

Any good stuff for you recently?

Do you love vintage buttons as much as I do?

(or am I just a wacko?)
