I’ve not bought anything for ages that was either pre-loved or a thrift store treasure. So I thought I would combine my ‘I Love Mondays’ post with a Magpie Monday post, about buttons.
Thrifty pickings have been very slim on the ground. I have passed up a beautiful teal typewriter, in a local charity shop. It is tempting me, however I feel it is really overpriced at £20 and I’m not sure if I will use it that much.
But a couple of weeks ago when I was ill, I spent far to long on Ebay looking at collections of buttons, that I can use in some of my crafty projects.
I bought this collection of green one’s for St Patrick’s but unfortunately they arrived to late.
Some really lovely ones in here, they were only a couple of pounds.
Here are some purple and mauve one’s that I also bought:
Quite a big collection, and again only a couple of pounds. I love the huge 60’s style fabric and plastic ones. They look like they are from the 1960’s. I hope I can use those on a Jacket, or a denim project, that I’m working on at the moment.
Now for my favourites, I think I might have paid a little bit much for them at £5 including p&p, however I absolutely love them.
I was surprised when they arrived from France. I must read the small print on eBay more carefully!
But I was not disappointed by these beauties.
I honestly can’t say if I will ever dare take them off the card, but they will look so pretty with my sewing things.
Sometimes I seriously worry about myself and my love of buttons (especially vintage). Who else has this passion?
