Bakelite Drawer Pulls

This set of six drawer pulls and 2 knobs came from a dresser we got from an estate sale of a friend's dad. The dresser needed too much work so I salvaged the the knobs and pulls with the intent of doing something with them... one day. It's been a few years now and here they sit.

Pretty rhinestone buttons

If I were a crafty gal (I'm not but I sure have put effort into some projects) I would surely find a use for these buttons. I can't say for sure if they're vintage or not. The four large ones remind me of something you'd see on a 60's jacket. The amber ones, I can envision on a cardigan. The two sparkly rhinestone buttons are for sure vintage. These would be perfect with any shabby project.

Check it out!

If you don't know, this is a new site where you can create any themed board you wish and 'pin' images to them for inspiration or just plain drooling over. When you pin a photo to your board, the link to that site will appear below the image. What a fab way to direct traffic to your site, especially as I'm gearing up to get my Vintage Shop going.

All you need to do is send a request for an invitation. When they contact you, just sign up and follow the instructions. Here's the link that explains all that. I'm just starting to pin images now, some of my own from my blog and some from other's boards. You can pin any image from any site! I can see how it could become an addiction.
