I’m delighted to be part of the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Days today and offer up some of our delicious vintage buttons for your sewing and crafting pleasure! I discovered these at Quilt Market in Houston, and grabbed massive bagsful to whisk away home with me. To be honest, I really couldn’t get enough–they’re absolutely divine, for reals. The ladies and I have been busily carding them up at the shop for you to take home with you to admire and hoard and plan to use in a zillion different ways. Delicious!
I have more than a little bit of a crush on these buttons. They were all rescued from an abandoned warehouse in Manhattan, the boxes of cardboard crumbling around the pristine buttons, all of which date to 1960 or earlier. They’re made of wood, glass, metal, mother-of-pearl, shell, and they’re all beautiful and weighty and smoothly lovely under my fingers.
I’m pleased to give away SIX cards of these vintage lovelies. Hooray! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment here and tell me what you’d do with these wondrously yummy buttons–that’s it! Giveaway closes Saturday, December 18 at midnight. Winner will be chosen randomly and announced Monday, December 20 on the blog.
