So, I got this pretty awesome box of vintage buttons (and other randomness) in the mail the other day. No, I didn't order it on ebay and no, I don't normally work with buttons. But when the universe offers up vintage buttons one should always say yes. I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to best use this bounty, but I have retained a couple of crack vintage button aficionados to help me sort through the goodness. I've resisted the incredible urge to dump the whole thing out and go through it piece by piece. Quickly digging through the box (the photo does a poor job of capturing the 3 inches of buttons below the top layer) has already generated a bunch of ideas, several questions and many must-use metal finds. As much as I'd love to, I can't commit any more time to it right now. I'll just have to wait to sit down with my brilliant button babes to figure it all out.
