My FIRST post! Hope you like it.

So I love embellishing vintage and resale shop purses (especially with buttons!). This is my latest.....
I work at an antique store and bought this vintage clutch for $7.00, then I collected a whole bunch of old white colored buttons (I for some reason really like buttons!) I randomly sewed the buttons to the flap the opens on the clutch. Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think. I just bought a few more clutch purses from the 60's and 70's at a vintage clothing store, so more to come!
Now here are the pictures....
