I love and collect buttons, the older the better. I think part of the wonder of collecting anything is the trill of the hunt, what will I find in the oppie or antique shop this week? Coming home with a stash of buttons and sorting through them, I always wonder what garment they came from, who wore them, where they went and what the buttons saw.
What would buttons say if they could talk?
I made this wired button necklace using a variety of vintage and new buttons.
