Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Button Holder

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so  please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week.  

Lastly, if you link in, your post needs to include:
1. the LINK back to my blog and or the button for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I have been visiting lately and when I click on a link, there is no mention of Vintage Thingie Thursday or my blog. 

2. make sure your post has something to do with something vintage. All advertisements will be deleted. If you'd like to advertise on my blog, email me, we can work that out. No more free advertising by linking in.  Shame on those who do this, nothing is free in life.


Starting this month, if you fail to either have the button on your blog, or in your blog post and/or have not linked back to my blog in your post. I will delete your link. 

It is not fair to those who follow the rules to allow others not to do so. I am not being ugly, but rules are rules.....in all aspects of life. So if you find your link removed, check your post, you need to see why that happened. Hopefully, I won't have to do that.

Today, I'd like to show off one of my mothers day gifts. My daughter surprised me beyond belief with her crafty ability on my gift. I simply love it.

She purchased a bird feeder and buttons and added the buttons to dress it up a bit.

I was so touched that she took the time to make this super special for me knowing my taste. I was impressed that she even thought of the idea.

But...it is too cute and too special to me to put outside and let the birds pick the buttons off one by one while trying to get to bird seed.....so.....I decided to store some of my vintage buttons in the feeder and display it in my sewing room.


I just love it and it brings a smile each and every time I look at it. Perfect for storing some of my vintage buttons and allowing me to enjoy looking at the at the same time! Thanks again Alisha, very sweet and thoughtful gift! I love it.

  20. How clever your daughter with the bird house idea. It will always be special because she took the time to think of something her mommy would like. I like that you put it in your sewing room to enjoy.

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
