Collection: Vintage Buttons

A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos of my treasured vintage coat hanger collection after seeing a collector's article in frankie magazine. It got me thinking about the other things that I have accidently or unintentionally started to collect.

Vintage buttons are one of those things. I never set out to start a vintage button collection, it just happened! There's just something about the colours, the shapes, the designs and the detail that get me everytime. How could you not love these coloured little discs of happiness?

What do you collect, I'd love to know?

Happy days to you!

  4. i love your button collection. i have a few vintage buttons too. i just couldn't resist and sometimes i can't bare to use them. i also love the old packaging and bits of card they are often found on : ) i 'officially' collect brooches, kinda, it wasn't intentional either.

  5. You got a lovely accidental collection of vintage buttons. When I was younger I collected erasers, still have the collection but don't collect anymore though. As for now I seem to collect magazines, yarn and washi tape a bit:) x


Thank-you for leaving a lovely comment! You just made my day x
