Vintage cards of hand-painted children’s buttons…

I know I’ve posted some of these buttons before – but I just can’t resist them! My friend just came back from England and  brought a whole lot of these home with her.  1930’s – 40’s vintage.

Hand painted cowbells…

Mice rowing in a bathtub…

Rabbits bearing gifts…


Baby birds birds cheeping for their dinner…

Big hats, little hats…

Sailors making music….

And my favourites – these beautiful bold hand-painted ducks.

How I love old button cards!
