Pushing My Buttons

by - November 14, 2014

I picked up this little apothecary jar at a church fair last weekend. When I saw it, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.

Voila!  I added white and gold buttons galore.  I never realized just how many buttons I've accumulated through the years!  There are probably anywhere from 750-1,000 buttons in there.
I also added an I heart Paris bracelet and faux string of pearls to the mix.
The tea-stained seam binding was the finishing touch.  So excited that now I have a pretty way to display my buttons!

  6. You've combined lots of my favorite things: glass apothecary jars, pretty buttons, and crinkly seam binding! Don't you just love it when you find things while thrifting that aren't only good looking, but functional too?!
