Vintage Button Goodness

I've been sorting and washing all of my vintage buttons trying to get everything all organized (have I ever mentioned that I have a sort of OCD personality?) While doing all of this I learned two important lessons: 1. a vintage muffin tin is the cutest (and most handy) thing ever to help sort buttons. 2. I have waaayyy to many cute buttons and I know I will never be able to use them all. Hmm...maybe a vintage button swap is in the works. Anyone interested?

I can relate to the OCD!

I have no vintage buttons to swap. Sniff. Sniff.

My buttons are boring...lots of black and white...gotta get thrifting! For the beauty bag I ended up reversing the measurements - in other words - 22 inches wide and 15 1/2 tall for the lining (etc...).

i used to sort my skittles before eating them. i can totally relate. i found a bunch of old buttons in my grandma's sewing basket... i may be able to partake in the swap soon :)

I love vintage buttons too! I don't think I could ever part with mine, very hoardish. I have mine loosely organized in snack size ziploc bags. It took hours and I hardly minded.
