Antique Button Sample Cards

One of my newer clients has a framed collection of antique button sample cards hanging in her home office. Isn't this a beautiful grouping?



You can start your own collection by stalking eBay with this search. There are lots of inexpensive options, if you're willing to be patient.



But if you're willing to front a little bit of an investment, I'd spring for this collection. The colors are STUNNING.

That is a beautiful collection - I love the grouping. I'm painfully resisting going to ebay right at this moment! :-)

You must visit Tender Buttons when you come to NY~
This idea of framing them certainly pushes my buttons.

These are beautiful. I love groupings, especially of items that are so simple and taken for granted by most. I may have to clean out my shoebox full of buttons and create one of my own.

Those buttons make such a lovely collection! That's such a great, inexpensive design idea, because I have so many spare buttons lying around that, let's face it, I'm never going to use.
