A Little Pile Of Buttons
Last Friday, yes, a whole week ago, I was lucky to find a jar of buttons at GW. That doesn't happen often so I was in the right place at the right time. Double lucky is it was a real button box with all the lovely randomness of a lifetime of accumulation. These at the top are my favorites. Love that clear Lucite one with the white flowers inside and that unusual rectangular one.
Here is a wider shot that shows a few glass, all black except one orange. Two of those buttons in the middle right side are made from some kind of nut shells. You can click the pictures to make them larger. There are a few interesting metals in the upper left and I missed taking a picture of the uniform buttons. That anchor is the first picture is metal with a clear plastic coating over the top. I don't think it's a uniform button but maybe. There are couple pieces of random bling at the top of the picture. I think it is what's left of a rhinestone buckle. It's sparkly and that's good enough for me!
This is the rest of the story on the plastics. The "leftovers" got me started sorting some buttons by color to put into inspiration kits. Any excuse to sort buttons - LOL!
