Beautiful Vintage Buttons

I had planned to do a post on wedding cake toppers because I was thinking of my nieces wedding this summer , and I have a couple of things I thought would look wonderful  on a wedding cake. I have one vintage  cake topper then a set of Ken & Barbie from 1997, both dressed in their wedding finest.

Then I was looking for a third topper and spotted one of my buttons cabinets and had to admire them for a while . Sounds crazy but I am sure any other button collector knows what I am talking about .

This is a candy  jar I have on my dresser, full of wonderful rhinestone buttons.



Some of the buttons I cut off of vintage  clothing, before I appreciated the vintage clothing  





 

I have all these in this candy jar



Then here is picture of one of the cabinets I have full of bakelite buttons and glass buttons





Glass ones in a drawer

 Then I have a tall glass canister full of the colored buttons from the 20's-50's primary color buttons, I cut a lot of these off old day dresses, I know what a crime now      




Read this that Kathy Kluless  has posted on her blog , about a little bitty Post Office LOL



I know all you Button Floozies and collectors  can relate to this post of my love of buttons LOL

  2. Good Evening to you, My word, I gasped when I saw all your beautiful vintage buttons. Nowadays, blouses, dresses and coats do not have such beautiful buttons.
    Yes, I fully understand why you stopped and looked at your collection. You pick up one button, then see another and another and another and so it goes on.I know I would do the same.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best wishes

  19. You're a button pirate, aren't you? :) This looks like you unearthed it from a treasure chest. Makes a girl want to scoop it up in her hands and watch it all sift through her fingers like gold coins. It's only fitting you store this eye candy in the candy jar. What a collection!
