Buttons Buttons and More Buttons!!!!!

My Buttons
 
I absolutely LOVE Buttons......all types of Buttons......especially Vintage Buttons. I have collected them for years and had them stashed in plastic bins. I finally organized them by color and type. Now, I just sit back and admire them. Here is a look at my treasures.


The revolving jar "thing" underneath the cabinet is a 1940's nail organizer from my Aunt Alice, who passed away in 1996 at the age of 99.
 
 
These boxes go under the Wood Shelf made by my talented Hubby.
 
 
My favorites - Lots of Metal Buttons
This plastic drawer "thing" also came from my Aunt Alice.
 
 
 
More Buttons in Jars and Plastic Drawers.
I love when I can see them.
 

Vintage Toy Ironing Board
Jars of Plastic Shirt Buttons and Plastic Gold and Silver Buttons
 
 
This revolving Jar "thing", also from the 1940's came from my Dad. The little Flower Pot in the middle was done by my daughter in the 3rd Grade. She is now 43 and a High School Teacher. Check out the little Bunny.....I love it!!!
 
 
I created this Recycled Leather Clutch as a gift last week.
I had a hard time parting with some of my "Babies".
I do love how it turned out.
 
 
Sold this little Clutch in my Etsy Shop earlier this year.
