Monday Photo of the Week - "Buttons"

I have so many more buttons than I was ever willing to admit to owning... but it seems like I am not the only one, LOL!

I received this cut glass candy dish as a wedding present. I did not then and do not now need a cut glass candy dish... but it makes a wonderfully handy-dandy container for my "interesting" buttons (you know, the ones that aren't plain ol' white or black or grey plastic...)


This little piece of my collection does not include the "boring" buttons (remember the plastic), my grandmother's box of vintage buttons, or the ones still on cards waiting for me to complete the garments for which they were intended...

It's a sickness I tell you!

The buttons look so elegant inside that candy dish....lovely shot!

Going back the years, I accumulated a substantial button collection but now, it's just a small jar filled with plain plastic buttons for my son's shirt repairs. My addiction now is art supplies...can never have too much. ;)

The perfect use for something that you don't need or wouldn't likely have bought for yourself.... and the overall colour is beautiful...it seems a lovely burgundy to my eye.....

Beautiful dish and I bet there are some elegant buttons in there too. Sorry for being late on commenting this week.
