Vintage Glass Buttons





I cant get enough of these pretty pastel vintage glass buttons, my new obsession!For a few weeks ago i have meet a nice lady.She has a large collection of these old buttons.
Many Years ago she has bought the buttons from a man who has worked in a button factory, in Czech Republic.
These buttons are produced in the 40´s and 50´s and they´re not produced any more.
I love to work with it,i sew them on garlands or adhere it on cones or boxes.Hope my english is good enough to understand :)
