Love Vintage, Love Buttons


Had a rootle tootle in our loft a couple of weeks ago. I was so excited to find the following. The pictures speak louder than words. Which are your favourites?

The Scotty dog gets one vote and the exquisite Art Deco piano key buckles get another! This tin came from my grandmother and I LOVE it!

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.

  1. I like the one with the horse best! 🙂

  2. the little pale greeny blue flowers :-). My gran used to keep buttons in an old Quality Street tin. I still think about that tin sometimes.

  3. When I found the button tin I also found the tin containing the hair ribbons my sister and I used to wear. I will put up a picture of those too. Just think of the memories you are making to leave behind with all your craft work!
