Yesterday I spent some time in my favourite thirft/ vintage markets and junk stores. Typically I went looking for one thing and came away with something entirely different! I was especially pleased with my find though...
...these gorgeous, vintage leather buttons!
Arn't they great! With that gorgeous, glossy, chesnut colour they almost look like conkers!
I've got no idea how old they are, but they have a really worn, shiny look and feel to them. I love that fact that they genuinely look like they have served a purpose in some previous life.
They are that old school that the fixings on the back are made from leather too!
Not sure what I'll use them for yet. I'm leaning towards coupling them with some chunky knitted thing, but I'll have to see.
