Vintage Buttons

Although I have a pretty big collection of vintage buttons, I can never have too many. I use mine to make Magnets for Memo Boards & Chalkboards that I sell in my Shop. The bigger the button, the better....
I just picked these up last weekend~ in some of my favorite shades of pink & blue!

Did you know there was a National Button Society? I didn't. You can find tons of info. and links on everything vintage button related. I also love this website Button, Button.. where you can view and buy vintage and antique buttons.

{from Rachel Ashwell's book: Shabby Chic}She says she collects vintage buttons to add to the backs of pillows to give them additional visual interest and detail.
