1. Oh, you are so lucky! I love love LOVE buttons, and I always hope to find a big box of antique/vintage ones at yard sales/thrift stores. So far not yet.
    I put buttons on hats, for flower centers and everything, Buttons Rock! And yours are beautiful, what an awesome gift!~and your gift back, AMAZING.

  2. Envy! I’m making buttons all day today, but it would take me ages to make such a pile (and they’d all be, you know, my style of handmade buttons. Variety!)

    OMG! OMG! OMG! I can’t wait to get my package!

    I hope you didn’t throw out the loose rhinestones in the bag. Do see that flowery looking button front and center of the picture of metal buttons? There are several of that style in the bag and there used to be rhinestones glued into the center divots. I’m sure they are among the loose stones I sent you. And many of those bagged buttons are made of something called vegetable ivory.

    • Thanks for all the comments. Vintage buttons are lots of fun.

      This post was planned for Monday when Brenda gets her package but I mistakenly posted it early – oops! Sorry for the anticipation. (and I kept all the loose rhinestones to glue back into their settings – don’t worry!)

      Waiting patiently to see the buttons Corvus turns out this weekend… 😉

    I love buttons too. I had to buy some buttons for a specific project recently and couldn’t make up my mind so I bought all 4 cards, asking the cashier if I could return them if I didn’t take them off the card. Then in my very next breath, I assured her that it wasn’t likely since I love buttons and even if I don’t use them, I will KEEP them!

  5. Wow! What a great friend – as are you for sending such a lovely gift back. The aged rhinestones are my favorites! Ooo! Shiny!

  6. I am in love with buttons, too. Thanks for posting these so I could vicariously enjoy your good fortune! Have you searched on Etsy for Czech glass buttons? They are amazing. I have been loving looking at them and am hoping for an appropriate sewing or knitting (or crafting) project to use them.

    Don’t be sorry you posted early. This way I knew to keep my eye out for its arrival. I’m already starting to get a pretty firm idea of what I’m going to do with the blocks. Now I just have to find the time to do it!

    I tried to do a pretty good job of hoarding all the Czech glass for myself, but it looks like one or two may have slipped through my greedy paws into your bag. 8:-)
