The Button Tour Continues
Glass buttons are my favorites but they don't get glamorous jewelry box storage. It's not that I don't respect the buttons. They are just so pretty that I like to keep them out where I can see them. The opaque glass buttons are stored in the center compartment of a vintage pink satin dresser box.
I scooped them all out into a tray so you could get a closer look. You can click the pictures bigger.
I put all the glass buttons that are not transparent into this category, except the ones with rhinestones that I showed you in this post. The clear ones will be for another post.
Many are iridescent or decorated with gold or silver. Sometimes they even resemble a metal button.
Notice the gold one in the top right corner of this picture. It looks like a military button but it is actually glass with gold paint.
Black is the most common so I always get excited when I find colors, especially unusual colors like pink or brown.
I love the way these look when they are all jumbled up together just like jewels in a treasure chest. Every time I poke through the pile it's just like discovering them all over again.
I am linking up with ShowAnd Tell Friday at My Romantic Home to share the button love again this week. Thank you, Cindy, for hosting!
