From the tour of my studio someone asked about the stack of glass boxes and the green buttons. So, being that they are one of my very favorite collections here, I have decided to let them 'out of the box' and show them to you. Here's the glass box....with an assortment of beautiful green buttons.......many of which were a gift to me from a friend.
All of these little gems came out of that box. All of them are glass. All delightful!!
This is a pin made from several old buttons. I didn't make it, but found it at the flea market. Notice the two green buttons.
Some of the assortment....in this photo two my favorites would be the rectangular light green one and the triangular one with the gold edging.
I love the larger button in this photo...but I don't think it's all that old......but the fancy green ones...four here.....ARE vintage. I looked them up once and know they are worth a lot more than I paid for them......all glass...all gorgeous!
LOVE these too! Look at that tiny one....so pretty! I'm especially fond of green glass, rather it's a button, a drinking glass, a vase, ANYTHING....green so pretty!
I have some glass ball buttons in green and in a few different sizes. In this photo there is one, clear green, but I also love that greenish/blue button too. And, those three with the pink. They are very small.
More small ones.
The diamond shaped one and the oval one are two of my all time favorites.
I've no idea, really, which buttons are worth the most.........I just know which ones I love the most. For instance, on the left about half way up the photo...that tiny faceted one. LOVE!!!
I think they are all quite nice!
Some more ball shaped buttons...these are kind of large...........I prefer that little square one in the middle!
You can find something different to like in each one.......it's always amazing to me that these have lasted as long as they have without somehow getting broken!
Love this one!
This one is my VERY favorite of all! Can you see why? Yes, it's that cute little bird!!!
And, a few more. Amazing how many buttons there could be in this world!
And, finally, another look into the glass box. I think of it as a 'Treasure Chest. My friend, Claudine, in France, said my Nest "was like the cave of Ali Baba." I suppose this little glass box is as good a treasure as I will ever come across...so maybe she is right! Hope you enjoyed seeing these lovely green glass gems. Til next time, take care. Pat
