Vintage Buttons

Hellooooo my pretties! Oh do I have plans for you!

I got these at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival. Vintage Mother of Pearl. I go gaga over them. They were my "big splurg, my entire budget." I paid $48 for them!!! (don't tell David, he already thinks I'm nuts over bunnies and fabric!)
I do have a very special project for them though where they will be showcase properly and all their beauty displayed! You'll be able to make the project too, but you can use less expensive buttons, unless that is.... that you're just as gaga over Mother of Pearl buttons as I am!!

Hugs,
shell

Ooh, those are lovely - I never even see buttons like that! I'm excited to see what you do with them. And never mind the cost - if it makes you happy it's worth it!x

I am headed for my button tin right now, Shell! These are sooo
pretty. Don't think I have any of these treasures though. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for these.

Loving the texture in those, if something so smooth can be said to have texture.....

Oh My, And I think $5 for a giant bag at a thrift store is too much, ha ha cause I can usually nab them for $3:D They are lovely though and I am sure will look even more beautiful in your new project. Can't wait to see what your up to.

Oh Shell, those buttons are so lovely. Mother of pearl buttons are just so yummy.
I'm going to use some from my stash for the Gabriella pattern I just ordered from you, can't wait.

Hi Shell, I love your vintage buttons. I cant wait to see what you do with them. I bought a handfull of mother of pearl buttons at Horsefeathers antique shop in Cape Cod last year. I cant part with any, so I will look forward to your project displaying them:)
My computer was on the fritz for a week, but its good to be back! Have a great week, (()) gail
