Buttons, Buttons, and more Buttons! (yes please!!)

A variety of vintage buttons (lot 1)

 

 I have started a new project or two and needed buttons.  



Awesome! I've been DYING to find a way to use all the buttons I inherited from my mother and grandmother (I probably have 5+ pounds!).  

 

 

Part way into my project and I realize "I don't have enough buttons!"... omg how is that possible??!!  






Yes, another lot of buttons! (lot 6)

What is a button-loving, (apparently obsessive-compulsive) button-needy person to do?  Shop on E-bay of course!!  

 


 Now I have about 8 more POUNDS of buttons (ok it's probably more like 9+ pounds) winging their way to me from various places around the U.S. - and England too (how cool do English buttons sound!?).  Now I just need to find a way to stop coveting more (and trust me, there are a LOT more buttons available!).

 

 

Oh and did I mention I bought rhinestones too (I mean you gotta have some bling in your craft projects - right?).



3 pounds of vintage buttons (lot 4)





I think I need to stop now - but there are SO many fabulous lots of buttons ... oh my.   I guess it's time to start thinking of more ways to use buttons!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

5 new pounds of buttons! (lot 2)


Check back later, I'll be sure to post a project or two!
