Button, Button, Who Has The BUTTONS?

My friend Pat, that's who!


Have you ever seen so many pretties in all your life? This is just the tip of the iceberg kiddies. I want them all, including the vitrine...okay I'd settle for just the vitrine?



A friend of mine had me over for a visit recently, and she is great at teasing me with things that she might be willing to part with. :) This is one just piece and as any die hard collector knows, it would be difficult to part with all of those buttons. If you think this is her entire collection, think again. She had a coffee table display full of them and a collection stashed in drawers in the closet.( You can click on the images to enlarge)

Wow, you're not kidding, she does have the buttons.
What a great way to display them. Mine are in a box where no one can see them, pretty sad.

WOW, what a fabulous collection!! I have never sooo many buttons in one place, hahah. Does Patti make anything with them or does she just collect them? I enlarged the pictures and the buttons are sooo pretty!! Thanks for sharing the eye candy.
Make it a great day, Janice

Vintage buttons are so fun, there's just somethin' about them that makes them yummy like candy :).

Hi Janice..she just collects and as far as I know, she doesn't make anything with them. She said some are quite valuable, even the singles. It amazes me that she has multiples of some that look so rare!
thanks for stopping by!
