button love

These are a few of the latest additions to my vintage button stash - I ordered what I thought was quite a small collection of buttons on Ebay, and when they arrived there were SO many more than were in the listing photos. Some of them look very old and are rather crumbly. The ones in the photo above are some of my favourites - there's more than a thousand buttons to sort through! Hooray!

Oh, and something a bit embarrassing. I've been rather sick, and have been mostly lying on the couch watching dvds. My buttons arrived and they were all colour coded in little bags so I had fun looking through them for about half an hour, then I started to feel sad again because I'm sick. Then I got up, still feeling sad, and realised I had been lying on the bag of pink buttons! So then I felt happy again because the pink buttons were the best, with all the pretty floral ones.
