Button Button...

Who's got the button?

I do...
Vintage Pink Buttons.

(click photos to enlarge)

A small stack of pink dishes..
with a scattering of pink buttons.


Here they are spread out a bit...

All the intricate details,
on these tiny seemingly insignificant objects.
Each a miniature work of art.


I just love buttons...
and collect several different colors.
I keep them in jars sorted by color
 in my hobby room.
I think they make a lovely display.
Someday,  I will photograph them to show to you :-)

The prior life of these everyday items intrigue me...
A special dress, an apron, a baby's gown, or long johns
(I have a collection of long john buttons!)
we button them all up.


One of my favorites are glass buttons...
the facets are gorgeous!


And...
Here are a pair of porcelain roses...
not buttons just pretty in pink!

Today I am joining Beverly at How Sweet The Sound
For Pink Saturday

So get your girly on and join in the fun!


Thanks for visiting,

Your buttons are so pretty! I love vintage ones too, and have some pretty mother of pearl buttons that belonged to a friend's grandma. When I was a little girl, I spent playing with my mom's buttons!

Donna said...

Ooop! I meant to say I spent hours playing with mom's buttons!

Melissa said...

I love buttons and mine are in vases by color too. I like how the thread is wrapped around the one button...neat idea...
