Zing. Zing.

This was a collection I found last spring in Montreal at Rubans Boutons, a little boutique of ribbons and buttons in the garment district of Montreal. And today I leave for the 5th (or is it 6th?) annual trip to Montreal with three friends for a weekend of discoveries. It was last year that we found the garment district and we’re all anxious to see what new place we find this weekend.

Happy weekend wherever you are making discoveries. Perhaps you will have a chance to run your fingers through a heap of buttons too.
