Living in Barcelona

Button Bonanza

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned the glorious trash treasure that can be found on certain days in Barcelona. Depending on your area, people throw out furniture and other interesting artefacts. I have found loads of curious things. A lovely vintage standing screen. Strange little cabinets on carved legs, huge paintings of deer, vintage framed mirrors and last night, a giant bonanza of buttons.

I assume that the tailor shop down the road was having a bit of a spring clean, because, who in their right mind would throw out packets and bags and boxes full of buttons. I also picked up a few zippers, and now will have to think of some fun button inspired things to make… perhaps a few rosettes.

If they turn out any good, I’ll do a little button giveaway! Yay for buttons!
