CAN YOU GET EXCITED ABOUT VINTAGE BUTTONS? ABSOLUTELY, YES!!!!

Look at the great collection of vintage buttons I managed to find at an estate sale yesterday! I have had such fun cleaning them and separating them by color. I know it must seem strange to get such joy from a bunch of buttons--but that is just one of my quirky qualities, I guess.







Do any of you happen to recognize this button--surely it has some sort of history:

Skip over to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasure Party going on right now!

Hope all of your estate sale treasures bring you joy!

I love all of those buttons! My great-grandmother used to have a box with a bunch of buttons. I always played in it when I went to her home. I think my Mom has that button box now and I want it!!!

You did good. When I see jars of buttons in shops, you would think they were gold because of the price.

I am also a button lover. It saddens me that I depleted my entire (inherited from my mom and grandmother) collection in various projects, but it gives me an excuse to look for new ones.

I could get excited about separating those beautiful buttons, but cleaning them is another thing. Great finds!

Hello Suzanne - love all those neat buttons! I'm so jealous. I'm on the hunt for vintage white/cream colors to display in a jar!

Blessings,
