Since buttons are one of my favorites in the studio and my last post of buttons was sweetly accepted, I thought I would show a few more , some may have made their day-view last year but I can always look at more buttons, can't you button gals?
These first buttons are very special to me , They belonged to Ruth, an elderly neighbor whom I feel in love with. Ruth lived next door and was 97 when she died about 5 years ago.
She gave me these buttons out of her sewing cabinet because she knew I collected pretty buttons. These were off of one of her favorites suites back in the 50's she wore to work at one of the city offices where she worked. She said back then ladies all wore suites, hose & high heels to work every day . Ladies dressed very proper back then.
I work at a university now and ladies wear tennis shoes and sweatshirts or work out clothes to work!
These are in a jar by themselves with her name in jar so I won't forget where I got them. The white beaded piece is off her wedding dress
I collect mostly white or rhinestone buttons however I think these yellow celluloid buttons are just great
That is a rhinestone button laying on the large white button
I know all of us button people have lots jars of white buttons, however I never get tired of looking and playing with them LOL
