Yummy Covered Buttons

Above is a 1.5 inch vintage hanky covered button worn by my best friend Kathleen, she's truly the best, best, bestest friend I have ever had. She's getting married in August to a good man... yes, ladies there are still a few out there if you can find them. I just can't wait to go and see how pretty everything will be including the bride.
Some of the fabrics on the 7/8 inch covered button sets below actually came from my granny. She gave me a box of old fabric a few years ago and there were some nice old unused vintage squares cut for a quilt in there too

Delicious covered buttons made recently from vintage feedsack and other fabrics of the 30's 40's and 50's. Getting my junk & goodies ready for the July Brimfield has been sort of fun this time. July is not such a crazy and busy show as the Brimfield shows in May and September. my trailer will not be packed so tight and Dave will be staying with me at this show. Have some truly yummy vintage fabrics and cases and cases of vintage, Czech glass and covered buttons in this load.

I hope to meet a few more of my eBay & Etsy buyers at this show. It seems like I get to meet one or 2 at each show. Many of my buyers have shared photos of what they do with the Czech glass and covered buttons I sell and will be sharing those photos as soon as I get all the proper credits and links figured out. I am so impressed with what others have done with the Czech glass buttons in particular.

More soon, Emily
