My Place and Yours - My Collection

I have been wanting to join in with My Place and Yours from Pip for a while but just haven't got round to it until now. This weeks theme is My Collection and I knew straight away what it would be!

Buttons of course!! I do like a nice pile of buttons to rifle though and sort and play with - occasionally I use them in projects too :) I prefer vintage and pre-loved buttons but if anyone wants to offer me a whole load of new buttons then I'm not going to argue! And with any good collection it is always ongoing :)

Some more photo's of buttons :) I love them!

great collection of buttons!!!
for all you button collectors out there don't forget many charity shops don't put their buttons out on display and you have to ask to see their button box and then spend ages looking through and buying lots of lovely buttons and for a good cause too.

I thought I had a lot of buttons. It seems to be a bit of a compulsion with me. But that is some collections. Very green, with envy.
Hope you have had a great weekend.

Far out! I think that's the most outstanding button collection I have ever seen! It's kind of like a lolly shop for crafters at yours, I think! Thanks for showing us. Totes remarkable, I think! x
