You never know what you will find in a container of buttons.
I've found everything from crochet hooks to coins.
From a recent rummage sale - a Mason jar of buttons has yielded
some great metal specimens. This set of 10 was in the assortment.
I thought they were kinda cute...
...but when I enlarged my photos - I couldn't believe the detail.
There were also 3 coat-sized buttons embossed with bagpipes...
A great big button resembling a patchwork quilt and measuring 1 1/2" across!
These black and gold buttons are looking classy...
And this grouping of snowflakes and fleur de lis are some of my favorites...
What is it about buttons? They bring back precious memories of sorting
through my mother's buttons when I was a little girl.
And what fun it was to watch my own daughter do the same with my buttons.
I'm selling the whole lot in my Etsy shop - hop on over.
May the joys of buttons continue for generations to come.
Happy Sorting! ~ Joyce
