Art Deco Buttons

Aren't these as cute as, well... buttons? I picked out these art deco ones from a large selection at the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Sale a couple of weeks ago. I seemed drawn to these black and golden coloured ones, finally deciding on these four. I know they will eventually adorn some creative project. I'm so happy that women everywhere used to cut the buttons off discarded clothes, keeping them to reuse. If not for these thrifty ladies, we wouldn't still have these lovely buttons around to admire and appreciate. I wonder how many homes still have a button box, tin or jar where today's buttons are collected?

  1. Gorgeous! They're nice enough to use as brooches - for the lapel of a vintage coat, perhaps.
