I have an uncle who lives in Moscow, and I asked him to collect some buttons for me around the city.
I expected a dozen or so.
I got about 200! These are just a few of my very favorites.
I also expected them to be really similar to ones I have here, collected in the U.S. I guess they are similar in that they have holes and are made to fasten garments… but you know what I mean.
They are so dazzling.
Okay, I toot my horn a lot… that is what blogs are for. That’s part of why we do it. But I am really proud of my button stash. Hundreds of pounds. And they are all hand-picked by me or the button fairy or people like my uncle who love to help me out. It’s easier to use mass-produced commercial buttons, but I know my way is more fun.
