Buttons galore!

Yesterday I took a lovely stroll into the city with a friend. The sun was shining, the birds were twittering and buttons awaited us! That's right, we hit the button sale at Buttonmania (read all about it here) and boy oh boy, were there plenty of buttons to choose from! Big buttons, small buttons, expensive buttons, darn ugly buttons, cute-as-a-button buttons, all piled into shoeboxes which themselves were piled in mountains around the room. It's quite funny which colours I zoomed in on - the same ones I love to wear, particularly the reds. I could have spent hours gazing at all that buttony goodness, and I didn't even dare go into the 'snazzy' button sale in case I blew our hard-earned savings on Czech glass numbers. Wheeee!

    ooop forgot to mention there is a Timothy Dalton flick on TV this week, oh yeah you dont have a TV...babow!!

  3. I clicked on the link. Oooh, the thought of that shop takes my breath away. Just like something I would have imagined in my childhood, with the rows of drawers containing buttony treasures (and the old lift). And your selection is lovely.

    I remember my mother scolded me much more vehemently than usual when she found out I'd been going door-to-door, armed with a tupperware dish and begging for buttons. I think I was about 6 or 7 at the time. I'd almost forgotten about that....

  4. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee indeed!
    Great selection too.

  5. I really like those square white ones!

  6. OH all the lovely things I could do with those buttons!!!

    Buttonmania, indeed! You'd have a riot shopping at La Droguerie. Or, at the vintage markets in Paris. It's a button paradise.
