Buttons Commode and Mirror

Le Clos de Fiorentina, St Jean Cap Ferrat
When I was very young, I had a nice friend from the south of France, her name was Marguerite.  Her grandmother used to make buttons- and Marguerite would show them to me.  I was amazed at how beautiful they were.  All hand made, exquisite.

These charming painted pieces, decorated with old buttons, have been haunting me for quite a while~ and they reminded me of my childhood friend, Marguerite, a wonderful person she was!  Enjoy!  DF *****

    1. Karena,
      Yes, it's very quaint- and I loved those old hand made buttons!
      I think they were made of mother of pearl and abalone !
      Pinterest has a whole board on French buttons!
