In yesterday's post I mentioned that I found some buttons on the weekend. Some were a little ordinary, but red and pink, which is good of course, some were biiiiig, which is also good, some were very pretty vintage ones, which is excellent, but most of them were the dinkiest, prettiest, loveliest, shiniest mother of pearl buttons, woohoo, which is fantastic!!!
A lovely elderly lady, strangely enough called the Button Lady, lol, had a stall at the little craft fair with trays and trays of buttons in all sizes, shapes and colours. Most of them were fairly standard pretty buttons in a rainbow of colours, but she also had a basket full of little sets of vintage buttons. I couldn't resist getting these -
Aren't those three huge mink coloured buttons the prettiest ever? I can see them as a centrepiece amidst mother of pearl buttons in a fab button necklace.
And speaking of mother of pearls buttons, here they are, looking gorgeous, even though I haven't cleaned them yet -
The Button Lady had a little bowl full of tiny coloured buttons and these MOP ones were hiding amongst them. The fair wasn't really very busy at all, so I spent ages looking through this little bowl, trying to find every last one of these MOP buttons. Some of them were incredibly tiny, so it was quite difficult. A couple of times I ran off with the bowl back to my stand because I had customers, god knows what the Button Lady must have thought, lol, but I was not going to put the bowl down and risk somebody else getting MY mother of pearl buttons. She was a real sweetie, actually, and didn't mind at all, she said I looked very trustworthy.
