Sisters Buttons

I told you in my previous post about my sisters cleaning out closets and giving me her button box? Well here is a few pictures of some of my favorite buttons. The one grey shell button is my favorite and then the mirror back metal buttons then the glass buttons
           
                                                             
 LOVE these
 Love the rhinestone round button
 Love the gold cupids
 Pretty
 Love this white button
 And then the box full of common buttons to play with


I have to get out the door to a basketball game I'll tell more later 



Linky parties I joined in

  2. Gosh, you have many of the same. I stick a piece of costume jewelry in each jar of buttons I sell and tape the jar closed so no picking out buttons. Love many of yours.

  18. Wow what a collection of buttons. They are all so interesting. I do love buttons and yours look like there's some history to each one.
    I love the blue plate your sis finally gave to you. It has such clear markings on it. And the windsor chair--I have one in my living room; it is quite old and I'd love it if it were worth 300 but I wonder …. since antiques aren't as beloved as they once were.

  24. There's something magical with buttons. When I was a kid I loved my mom's tin box full with all kinds and color buttons, such fun.
    Your collection is great.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  25. Some of those buttons are gorgeous. I love looking through a jar of buttons, so many colors, sizes and patterns. And best of all, it is a collection that doesn't take up oodles of space.
    Visiting from Thoughts of Home.
    Have a great week.
