Buttons and Ephemera, to the tune of red.

My wonderful mother/Santa purchased a wonderful vintage jar of antique buttons for Christmas. And then we went antiquing and I got even more. And now I’m having a little too much fun filtering through them and sorting them and generally obsessing over them because I sort of have a button fetish. Kind of like my vintage stamp fetish. Neither in a pervy way. Come on. Anyway, so I created this red-themed set of buttons and ephemera, because beautiful vintage buttons look even beautiful-er with awesome vintage papers. That’s just common law. Joanie loves Chachi, Arrested Development should be transposed to film, and buttons should be accompanied by rad ephemera.

Here are some images from the lovely little red-themed set. Perfect for Valentines or just your average awesome collages, collecting, scrapbooking, fawning, and a bunch of other “-ing”s. More info over on Etsy.

My jars of antique buttons, coupled with ephemera: tag with 3 ft. of red & white baker’s twine; vintage word vocabulary flashcard; vintage German vocabulary flashcard; 3 vintage and canceled international stamps;
10 scalloped-edged cut-outs from a 1918 French text; butterfly tag/label

Vintage buttons in red, pink, and white – some with the original thread!

Ephemera loveliness.

Buttons, buttons, and more buttons. You will receive 30 of these little lovelies.

My vintage Ball and Atlas jars, which frequently tempt me to unscrew their lids and plow my hand into the middle of the cool, slick, buttony surfaces. Ahem.

Packaged.

Wrapped and ready to travel!

Wordshop Wednesday: Mélangerie!

Today, thanks to Oh So Beautiful Paper, I discovered the greatness that is Mélangerie. Not only do I dig the Frenchified shop name, but I also get perhaps a little too excited about all of their unique, adorably fun paper goods. And I have a feeling you will, too.

Wanna see why? Yeah, of course you do:

Scratch-‘n-sniff holiday cards? Heck yeah!
