Hi Everyone, It has been quite awhile since I last posted. Today I have been working with vintage button cards and thought you might enjoy some of them. There are also a few that I made from old magazine covers. Just a quick little post. Much love to you all, Louise
The Legacy is a small, but very full thrift store. Everything has been donated and the proceeds go to the Sebastopol Senior Center. The most wonderful thing is what they specialize in; sewing, quilting, fabric, crafty stuff, yarn, books, scrapbooking, stamping, embroidery, ribbon and trim etc. It’s like a Jo-Ann’s or Michaels’ thrift store. They also have vintage lace and linens. This little shop has been my soft place to fall. It’s magical. Now onto the buttons… My last name, Bouton, is French for button. Ironically I am now in charge of the button donations at the Legacy and I LOVE it. Wanting to make a pretty button card to sew the loose buttons on led me to the discovery of clip art. Luckily I found "JustSomethingIMade" and "the Graphics Fairy". Kindred spirits! Then I realized I had 1000’s of similar images, dating to the 1700’s. Inspired, I created a blog to share all this ephemera with you creative ones. All because of buttons! And that is how Bumble Button came to exist.
