The Button Jack Pot!!

I guess a true Jack Pot would be more like a Truck Load of vintage buttons, but these sure felt like the best find I've come across lately.

The colors, designs & shapes...I'm in love with these sweet old buttons! They will eventually become magnets for my Inspiration Boards and Chalkboards.

I really have had the worst luck lately at finding vintage frames. But, along with the buttons and these two amazingly beautiful red velvet pillows, I found two frames.

The funny thing about the pillows is that I bought them knowing they would match nothing in my house. But, they were in such perfect condition(most likely from the 60's) I thought "Someone in Iowa or Wisconsin has been looking for these exact pillows and would love them", so they'll be going into my Vintage Shop.

Love your buttons, you certainly did hit a jackpot with those goodies!
And the pillows are sweet too.

Those are great buttons! They remind me of the little plastic candle holders for cakes from the fifties. Those pillows are gorgeous!

I love your blog and your etsy shop. I wouldn't have been able to pass up those pillows either!

I love the buttons and the pillows! The pillows actually look very button-ish. Have you seen this button candy?

I did see the button candy, that's the neatest idea! That's all I'd need~ buttons I can eat :)

Ooooh, I hate that. You KNOW you can do it and it just doesn't work somehow. They are gorgeous. And the buttons, lovely.
