Little Old Buttons
I love using vintage sewing notions and fabrics for my creations... stuff was just made better in the olde days. The antique buttons are so fascinating, I always wonder about the person who originally bought them new from the store, carefully selecting it off the display rack and then taking it home in a little bag... perhaps for a sewing project or replace missing buttons on a dress back in the 1920's-30's. One can't help but think of the era and how life was then.
The buttons I acquire sometimes are still on the original crumpled & worn card after all this time, saved or forgotten, somehow spared from the dustbin, perhaps even traveled around the globe! So I always feel I owe it to the buttons to put them to good use :O)
