Sharing more button love today with my little collection of glass rhinestone buttons. I keep them separated from the plastic rhinestone buttons for no good reason other than that is how I do it.
If you look close you will realize some of them are missing rhinestones. I save them anyway and repair them as I find rhinestones in the correct size. I have purchased loose rhinestone assortments on eBay but I also save the random ones I find in the bottom of vintage button boxes. They just sit in a pretty little tin, patiently waiting to find their soul-mate. You haven't finished sorting a vintage tin of buttons until you have picked up every single piece, one by one, and looked at both sides. You never know what treasure might be hiding at the bottom with the pins and lint.
Can you imagine a coat with a row of those big blue ones down the front? Now that is some BLING!
