Silver and Gold Vintage Button Jar Eggs

March 28, 2012
Remember my button jar Easter eggs?

I used the colored button eggs in my "Easter Suitcase Vignette" (in a collander) and in my "Little Spring Vignette" in a bowl/soapdish in the bathroom, but I still had the silver and gold button eggs that needed display. A small little sliver of the silver egg was visible in my "Vintage Easter Collectibles and an African Violet" post.

I tried to find a way to display them to show off all the neat old metal buttons used in their creation. I put them on a couple of hand mirrors in my bathroom.

Some really neat old buttons went in to the making of these Button Jar Eggs!

  1. They really turned out fantastic, Carlene! That was a neat idea to display them the way you did. By placing them atop mirrors, you can see the pretty buttons on the bottom without even having to handle them. ;)

    Thanks for linking your creativity to Time Travel Thursday this week.
