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.
