Some time ago I bought a jar of haberdashery pieces from a jumble sale, I blogged about it here
I finally got round to washing the vintage buttons in the jar.
There was a thin layer of dust on all the buttons so I washed them in mild, soapy water with a soft toothbrush!
There's no doubt that my favourite is this pearl-effect flower shape button, and it looks even better now its been cleaned!
