I Have This Thing for Buttons

My vintage button collection is become a bit of an obsession. It’s also not just vintage buttons, I can’t seem to stop looking for and buying buttons, from wooden printed ones, to cast metal, fimo and plastic in all colours of the rainbow.  Here’s a few of my favourites:


I have this thing for buttons

Why? I couldn’t really say

Their shape, the colour

The way they feel when

You get them out to play.

I love my box of buttons

With it’s treasures new & old

Plastic, metal, wood & leather

Shiny, matt, pastel or bold.

Are you a button collector? Do you ever use them, or would you rather keep them in your collection?
