A friend of mine had a yard sale and going to have an action because they are selling their house to move to their Florida home permanently.
Anyway I did buy a few things from her but she gave me this tin of buttons that was her mom's so I played with buttons all evening, washed them dried them then separated into colors. I like all the white buttons separate in jars by them selves.
This is what I am working towards , this lace necklace laced with beautiful mother of pearl buttons, which I have some I can use also. I have plently of old lace and some tatting pieces I will try out to use for the necklace part to sew the buttons on .
I laid some of my buttons out to see how I would arrange them
All washed up shinning
I have 2 gallon jars full of the dark buttons and sold a few at the last set up at the expo center in door garage sale . I never sell the mother of pearl or white ones. The black ones are jet black glass buttons
I think lots of bloggers are button people so you will understand all the pictures of the new buttons in the house LOL also some of my mother of pearl handled knives
