Antiques and buttons

Yesterday my mother and I were on a mission to find a certain button that apparently is impossible to come by.

Our first stop was the antique mall in town. They have jars and jars of buttons to look through! So many unique and pretty buttons. If only we could find the right one! UGH.

While I was looking through I found those really great vintage glasses. I am in need of a pair so badly. Maybe I'll go back and purchase those frames?

Anyway, since we were in the antique mall my mom decided to snap a few photos of my outfit.

There are so many incredible knick-knacks here and there. Even though I go pretty frequently I always find sometime new (or old?) that I want to take home.

This photo kind of gave me the creeps.. Somehow I always have several photos where I look like a complete loon. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that I couldn't find one measly button that would work!

We honestly searched high and low all day until we went to every fabric, craft and antique shop we could without success... I was completely drained after searching for a button! What are the odds?

stay tuned for my giveaway post later!!

  4. what kind of button were you looking for? I LOVE buttons. I collect them! any estate sale I go to there is usually a jar of buttons that the person left behind and I love to snatch them up! Not sure what I am going to do with them all yet but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually. A DIY project for sure. Or just a random collection...
