Button Art







While other Ebay vendors clearly grab a handful of Grandma's buttons and sell them in mis-matched, muddly lots, the clever people at Sydney and Jay gather together truly scrumptiously themed collections of buttons and buckles and arrange them for sale like tiny works of art.

Create similar collections yourself, stitch on to something pretty and frame...

Those are very nice.....
I had a friend who passed away last year, his name was Boyd, his nickname was "The Button Man"
he had a bazillion buttons...when his wife and I went through them last year we gathered them all into 3 and a half rubbermaid LG containers. There is such a variety..from vintage to military to ....a bazillion...
This is in memory of him next month of his passing.

Oh Barbara that is such a lovely tribute. I always feel happy when a post of mine stirs a precious memory. To the Button Man...x

I'm totally in love with buttons, always have been, and I currently have a hat box full of them, a birthday present from my lovely friend, who brought them with her from America to surprise me! I don't know what was better present, having her surprise me or the buttons!

One thing is for sure, I know what I'm going to do with the buttons I'm too fond of to risk on cardigian and jackets!

Thank you Alison!
