Buttons, buttons, buttons. Let’s get right to the point, I love buttons. You might think love is a bit of an overstated expression but it really is the truth in whole. I’m addicted to buttons. Of course I treasure the vintage ones with their unique patterns and swirls, but I’m not overly choosy. I enjoy seeing my jars and vases full of color-sorted buttons, both new and aged. When I see bright shiny buttons in rainbows of colors my heart might skip a beat, if the whole truth were told. One exciting way I find my buttons are at estate or garage sales. Another favorite is a flea market find or an Etsy destash. I’m a sucker for staying up late searching Etsy for the best, most creative deals. Though in the end my favorite way to find them is from those I know, close to heart. Where you know those before you loved them as much as you’re going to love them. That sort. Just a few weeks ago my dearest, sweetest Great Aunt Dee Dee (whom I’m named after as well) was generous and kind enough to share her sacred button collection with me. Included in this collection are some buttons that belonged to my Great Grandmother. Now that is the sort I’ll treasure for keeps.
All these thoughts of buttons moved me to do an impromptu photo shoot featuring buttons and my favorite boy. I’ll share some here. Buttons are indeed on his list of favorite things too.
What are some of your favorite things?
