Tuesday Treasure - Vintage Buttons

I love vintage buttons!

This collection I mainly inherited from my mother...


This beauty is about one and a half inches across...



And it looks like its made from glass!

I'm lucky to have two of them !


And I have at least 3 of these lovelies!


The two white ones pictured here I picked up from a second hand store recently!

A pretty flower and a basket weave- fab!


And this one would have adorned my father's uniform when he worked on the 


Victorian Railways back in the 40's, I think!


You can just about make out the VR!


And a buckle from my school uniform back in the 60's!

Mum made all our clothes in those days!

(She even made my wedding dress nearly 30 years ago!)

And a few more of interest-

Which ones do you like? I'd love to know!

Linking up with Melody's Tuesday Treasures too!


Happy sewing!

  2. Oh, I couldn't choose - I like them all. I'm not sure who ended up with my mother's collection - it was intended to go to my oldest daughter but I am not sure.

  6. I love them all and I really love the buckle. It would look nice on a bag with fabric threaded through it.

  9. That black glass one is a beauty. You could make a very glamourous clutch bag closure with that!

  13. All your buttons are lovely. My favourite is the little cream coloured flower with the lazy daisy petals. I like the way some of them hold memories like photos.
