LOOK what I got!!!!

A surprise shipment from my mom and grandma in NC!

WOW!! In addition to the buttons, the box is filled with zippers and a few old patterns and odds and ends. I'm going to have fun going through this tonight! .... :)

BTW - does anyone have any tips for cleaning the buttons? Just soap and warm water?...

you lucky duck, you.
I LOVE vintage buttons!
I usually just soak them in warm, soapy water and air dry, but if there's rhinestones and such, you may wanna just wipe 'em.
I found this link that may help.
can't wait to see what you do with them!

What do you know? I just got some buttons from my grandma, too! I dedicated a post to them on my blog, as well - what a coincidence!

I found your work on Etsy a while back and loved it! I've also enjoyed your blog and seeing what new things you've done. You're very talented, so keep up the good work!
