Washing vintage buttons


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!

If you'd like to see more retro goodies, head on over to my "Vintage Finds" board over on Pinterest...

So pretty, and so satisfying washing up those vintagey finds. What luck to find some treasures the jar.

Wow, this is so beautiful, what a find! I must say I rather love the look of all the buttons in the bottle with the red lid too. I love jobs like washing buttons, so satisfying!
Great to find your blog - and huge congratulations for your wedding :)
