Last weekend, while we were is St. Louis, MO, my mom left a baggy with lots of pretty vintage buttons for me by the porch.
I inspected them, and arranged them in different ways. The more I look at them, the more I think it wouldn’t make sense to rip them apart from their little vintage cards they are attached to. I love the graphic quality of these “vintage button” cards: the typography, the ink, the paper; even the creases, and the time damage quality make them specially treasurable. They simply wouldn’t be the same without the buttons on them, don’t you think??
Next collection: towers of books around the house. We’re having some pipes fixing in the living room, and a couple of books cases needed to be emptied and moved away from the wall. . I thought it was a good occasion to take some pictures.
My last collection for today: A small collection of pretty fabrics. I got them last week from one of my favorite esty fabric stores. They're even more beautiful in real life. I wish I could spend the rest of the day, petting them, and planning all the little quilting projects that I have in mind. But no, not really… I have to tons of stuff to do :(
Hope to be back soon!
