Outfit of the Day and... Buttons!

First up an outfit!
This is my new circle skirt I made last weekend, in this post here!
Skirt: Handmade
Shoes: Vintage
Tights: Forever 21
Cardigan: SES
Belt: Came with another dress
Blouse: Target
Brooch: Family heirloom

This mint green cardigan received three compliments that day!

I bought these little brown shoes at a vintage fair.  They're super comfortable to walk in, but still give me a bit of height.

This brooch was made for my grandmother by my grandpa.  It's an old penny with a pin glued on the back, and the front decoupaged with pretty paper.  It's one of my most special things.

Off to work in the office!

Later that night I played around with my enormous button collection.  I'm sick of hunting through them for hours trying to find matching sets, so now I'm trying to tie together all the matching ones!


 Cute little girl shank buttons.

A few of my favourites.  Those back left ones I actually covered myself with a kit.  They match a skirt.

 All the paired up ones!  I just used a bit of thread to tie them together.  There's still SO MUCH to do, I get quite overwhelmed doing it.  I must have thousands of little white buttons which are ALL DIFFERENT.  I'd like to get rid of a lot of my buttons because they're cluttering up my life.  Any ideas on how to get rid of them?  Do people buy buttons on etsy?
