Vintage Glass Buttons

Morning everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the run up to Christmas. Having tried to brave the shops last Sunday, I decided that the rest of my gift shopping was going to be carried out online, in shops like Etsy and Folksy. So much more civilised - and you get to support independent artists and crafters rather than faceless corporations.

Here are a few gift ideas for the sewing and craft lovers in your life - or they would make an ideal gift for a button collector or glassware collector!

This first set of three clear glass buttons has a moulded, lacy pattern decorated with gold lustre. [Sorry - this set has now been sold.]

This pair of beautiful, bronze lustred buttons are made in the style of Bimini (although not by that company). They could be converted into earrings by a jeweller or used as a decorative accent on a handmade project. They cost £6.00 for the pair from Love Buttons HQ.

Finally, these charming red glass buttons with painted detail in white and gold. They have a folk art appeal and would brighten up many a Christmas project! They cost £5.00 for three from Love Buttons on Etsy.

Cheerio until next time ...
