Vintage Vibes

My buttons were taking on a distinct 50's feel so I have carded them up onto a pictures taken from an old American McCalls magazine circa 1954. I should have written  'elegant buttons for elegant ladies', typically I didn't give it enough thought. Too much to do at this time of year  (but then haven't we all).

I have not put this one onto the card backing yet. When it is  finished that will be the last of the handmade presents and I will still have enough buttons left to put into my components box for future projects.
I have to say I adore these  images of 1950's languid, elegant ladies and love the current vintage trend that a lot of  women have adopted. Alas being very short and dumpy does not make for elegance.....  one can but dream.
