My Creative Space




My creative space today involves buttons, lots of them, vintage buttons that have been sitting in this pretty tin for many many years. They used to belong to my ex mother in law and they have been passed onto me. I love button tins, I could footer through them for hours at a time. Not only for the buttons but all the other little bits that find their way into them. Fun time!

Take a looksie at other creative spaces here.

What a divine tin! I love button tins too. A while back my mum let me go through hers and pick out vintage buttons for my stash. What a fantastic afternoon that was!

I reckon the tin is as much the attraction as the buttons too. I dont know why but buttons just look better in a tin .

Ohh, I have a real thing for buttons at the moment...plus they are easier to store given how little space we have left in our house!

Ooooh vintage. It just makes me want to keep looking. I really need to do some photography with my vintage bits and pieces - old coins and buttons and bits and pieces I've collect over the years... you have been very inspiring!

I love buttons, especially vintage ones. That tin is also just amazing! I'm a little jealous. :)
