I'm a button freak. I love vintage porcelain and abalone buttons. They're all over the house.
I have some framed, like these gorgeous calico petticoat treasures.
I have some in jars on the windowsill...
some in a wood bowl...
and some in a ceramic bowl...
and some have found they're way into this pink milk glass pedestal dish along with a string of pearls.
mmmmm pink milk glass ( but more on that another day ).
isn't this a shame? I'm going to have find a prettier home for the rest.
Once while out on a treasure hunt with my young daughter, we came across a display where the vender was asking about 10 cents each for some sweet little pearl buttons. She proudly exclaimed that if we sold all our buttons we'd be millionaires.
"But then we would have them any more!" I said. :-)
Tell me, do you have a special collection that you wouldn't part with, even for a million dollars?
