I recently received a wonderful box from my blogging friend Peggy! Inside was a vintage Christmas box with a stack of charming hankies and a bag of assorted buttons. And a handknit heart! I felt like it was my birthday!
I don't know much about buttons but I buy them anyway.
I got this big box and tin of buttons at a winter flea market. $8.00 for all!
Took me quite a while to sort them all out, lots of treasures here!
...no, the best "keepers" that I gleaned out.
And here are some pretties up close...
This buy yielded a nice handful of the Victorian/ Edwardian eras' large carved mother of pearl or shell buttons.
I have to admit I rarely use these or sell them, I treasure them, I guess I can say I collect them, in a very unfocused way....
