Buttons and Sewing Fixings and Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day Lovely Readers

Jars, wire top, zinc top.
Collections. Buttons, Spools, Thread, Thimbles.
Sewing Fixings.
My small desk vignette (egg print from Graphics Fairy), Cast Iron bird (a Christmas treat) and the buttons - found them on Sunday when I was digging through boxes on the top shelf in my shed. I just knew I had some packed away somewhere. The pint milk bottle was another summer find just waiting to be put to use again.
These sewing collectibles came from the summer when I bought sewing baskets at yard sales and got wonderful surprises when the baskets weren't empty. Vintage sewing findings. Happy me.
The thimbles have been collected from here and there for some time and one day I had that small 'ah-ha' moment and put them together in a small sealer.

I found a few button related posts from other bloggers that you might enjoy.

  1. Hi Joy,

    Your vintage jars are so pretty with the buttons. I found a jar recently in aqua blue and just love it. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I like your use of the canning jars
    for storing sewing notions. Great idea!

  3. I am so attracted to collections, then to put in the jars even better , I like the surprise of them. You continue to see surprises as you turn the jar.
    Happy Valentines Day,
