... coming out of blogging lethargy for Button Week

I found out from Dawn of The Feathered Nest that it's International Button Week as declared by
Abbie of Button Floozies. Just what I needed to bring me out of my great, long blogging lapse! Dawn wrote an ode to buttons that you'll see on her blog when you visit there.

Some picture of buttons from my stash:

My favourite quote about buttons -

"A button asks little more than to be held, admired and worn close to the heart. "
I first saw this in Victoria Magazine a few years ago.

WOW! I love your button stash! Especially the square mother of pearls - really unique. I recently embellished a thrift store men's blazer with some of my favorite buttons. I'm trying not to wear it EVERYwhere, but it's so much fun to have those special buttons right on the front of my coat! Thanks for sharing some of your favorites, I'm inspired to take pictures of my own to post.

Hi there - I am searching for the whereabouts of Barb Griffin and Kelly Stapleton who are both mentioned here on your blog/website. My name is Sandy Neilly, editor of the Wayback Times, and I am publishing an article on chenille by columnist Hyla Fox from a year or two ago. I would like to confirm that Barb and Kelly are both still in the vintage textile business. I can't find any further info on them.
I hope you don't mind me posting this here.
Thanks for your time!
Sandy Neilly

Hi there. i just love your the little 50's button cards. Did you do them yourself? i would love to display my 'singleton' favorite buttons like that.

LP Vintage said...

Hi ButtonCandy (love that name!) Not sure if you mean the cards with the women and the buttons? I did make those ones; they're from rubber stamps which I stamped onto luggage tags and then sewed the buttons on. The stamps are from a company called B-Line Stamps - they have tons of wonderful stamp designs!
