Buttons from Paris!

Back from a lovely trip.  Went to phenomenal button shop in Montmartre, Dam Boutons.

They don't allow photography in the store, but they have lovely pictures on their website,  I wish I had taken a picture of their handsome black and white Spitz, though, sitting in that doorway and vetting the customers.

The mouths are from Salvador Dali (they had a number of buttons celebrating the artists that hung out in Montmartre).  The big red ones are actually from a trim shop that we passed walking through the Arts and Metiers district.

And then there was Le Petit Pan, a store that features charming things for tiny children in fabrics from Japan, but one of their storefronts in the Marais was fabric lengths, buttons and trim.

Now, time to get back to work!
