I Warned You....!

 Yep, I can't seem to score any junk lately so yet another button post.  The latest lot of buttons included some really neat old cards so I thought I would show those first.  You can click them bigger.
 I more than ADORE {all caps} these two.  I like how they are the same but one has leaves on the button flowers and the other doesn't.  Mother of Pearl, of course, and all are carved.
 Two more MOP cards plus a complete card of green glass buttons marked "Made in Germany U.S.-Zone".  The Husband was born in Germany so we have a few things in our collections.
 Another Lady Washington card and two perfectly stunning Lucite buttons.
 Some more fun plastics and the silver buttons on the right are metal.
This is the rest of the story "as found".  I will show my favorites from this pile in a future post.  In the meantime, I hope I can finally score some junk this weekend and stop boring you with button posts.
Oh!  I did win another lot of buttons on eBay.  I checking the tracking number earlier this week and they lost there way between PA and Oregon and they are currently  on vacation in Hawaii.  I hope they come home soon!

Nothing better than the graphics on those old cards.

I have long loved the Lady Washington cards because of the graphics. Between your junking jaunts this weekend you can wash and sort that LARGE bunch of buttons.

I'll never get tired of button posts. Love those green glass beauties. Why do garters always seem to make their way into button tins? I hope your lot doesn't decide to stay in Hawaii on vacation.

LOL! I hope your errant buttons find their way back to you soon. I enjoy the button posts since it helps me learn about them. I haven't had too much luck finding good junk lately either. Can't wait to find some really good old stuff!
