Antique Cameo Button and a Free Image of Edwardian Women

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog, 
Pairing buttons with a themed graphic is what I have been doing for quite awhile now! That is how we sell the buttons in the Legacy thrift store. Some of our customers even buy the cards and put their own buttons on them. We also have a big flower pot full of loose unmatched buttons. Children who come in can select 3 for free. They have so much fun digging for the perfect treasure. Lately we have had so many button donations that I am tying sets together. Not as pretty as putting them on the cards but I would need a bunch of busy elves to keep up. For now I am sharing button pictures and some cards on my little blog with you all. I hope you can have as much fun using the graphics as I have had creating and reproducing the images.

Cute Bakelite Bullet Buttons. Free Vintage Button Cards Graphics

Yesterday marked 612 days between posts. 
How about one day between? Much better. 
Today I have some cute vintage Bakelite buttons to show you. Because I have photographs of so many buttons and hundreds of graphic reproductions of button cards I am having fun pairing them.
These laminated Bakelite buttons look like candy.
 Butterscotch Amber, Cherry, and Apple juice are some of the fun names used for the different colors of Bakelite buttons.1920's-50's

Vintage Silvery Rose Button and Free Images to Enjoy and Use

Hi! It has been a very long time but here I am with some free images.
 Free for personal use as gift tags, in collages, scrap booking, ATC or any other crafty project.
 I am also posting pictures of Legacy buttons and the cards I made to match.
This one is a favorite of mine. A Battersea pewter button from late 1970's.
This rose button is heavy and took a lot of silver polish to shine it up!It came in totally black.
