Latest Finds

First I want to show my latest button finds. I am always on the lookout for buttons,pretty and Mother of pearl buttons that is. Seems like there is lots common buttons in jars everywhere I go.

I am not having any luck getting my MOP necklace together either. I really need a person by my side encouraging me. Now when I am at work I have all the enthusiasm to get it made then when I get home i'm out of  enthusiasm. Any of you ladies who work outside of the home knows what I mean.

This is the best of what was in a square jar that I found Saturday at a shop I had never been to in Jefferson City Missouri. There was a lot more not worthy of a picture
                                                                           
I love the large celluloid button with the sort of octagon middle.I think I have another one in my button drawers in the studio . The tatting shuttles I got at another thrift store I got 7 for $8.
 Then the larger blush colored coat button . The square jar of buttons was $5
 There was a few bakelite buttons and I like the star cut out buttons ad the red leaf buttons

I bought the jar just to get the larger buttons

Here is my Mother of pearl buttons I am trying to make into a necklace


Just for fun a jar of beauties I posted already on Button Floozies 

Here is some more of my old buttons 



Linky parties I joined in

  24. It's getting more and more difficult to find great old buttons like these. Glad that you found so many for a nice price. Far better than buying them new as buttons are very expensive.
