one pretty thing: vintage button jar

Hi everyone!
First: American friends, have you voted yet?  If not-- stop reading this and go vote!  It'll still be here when you get back, I promise.

Anyway.  Now that we have that taken care of, I'd like to share with you part of a lovely graduation present from my best friend Marissa's family.

It's a jar of vintage buttons!  I love it.

The buttons are all different shapes and sizes and colors.

Even the lid of the jar is pretty!  It's nice to touch, too-- it has that weathered-metal feeling.

I've collected vintage buttons for years, but this jar of them is special to me because it was such a thoughtful gift.  Then again, I shouldn't be too surprised-- it came from a wonderfully thoughtful family.

Have a fantastic afternoon!


  1. Woah! That is an awesome birthday present! Do you have several jars of vintage buttons or do you store them in some other clever way?

    1. Wasn't it sweet? Marissa's family is so sweet. They're truly like a second set of parents. I have lots and lots of vintage buttons, and they're stored mostly in vintage tins. My favorite is teal with daisies on it, and two handles, like a picnic basket!


thank you so much for visiting, and for your thoughts! x
