Is there Rehab for Button Collecting?

I am so bad, I am addicted!!!  My brother says I need to go to Button Rehab for treatment.

But since I don't smoke and I seldom drink and I don't have a husband or children at home,  I reckon I'll just keep looking for beautiful buttons to make me content with the World!!

Buttons can't hurt me, they won't argue with me and I don't have to feed them or clothe them..

They just put a smile on my face so what would Button Rehab do.. take the smile OFF my face???

Happy New Year

I haven't posted for awhile as I was overawed by some of the beautiful old buttons on blogs, considerably older and probably valuable.  I am only collecting because I love the beauty and colours and patterns and I'd love to learn the history even if it is in the last 100 years.

This is a fabulous Christmas present from my friend Carol who knows me too well. She found these buttons in an op shop and they are gorgeous. 

I have been lucky enough to find a couple of new horse buttons so I think I will collect them when I can.  My Dad had a nickname for me "Horse" but only because there was a racehorse with my name when I was a kid.  I never minded him calling me that, it was something special between the two of us and now I miss it.

Look at these gorgeous display's of buttons.  Aren't some people creative. 

Such a pretty button tree.
Gorgeous button wreath - I love textured white buttons

A topiary bush for green buttons.. hmmm!
