Catching Up On The Buttons
I promised I would show the button goodness from that big lot of buttons I scored during my Last Minute Shopping in this post. The holiday dust has settled so here we go...
I showed the POD buttons and the Portland FD button already. These are the rest of the uniform buttons. I don't usually find so much variety in one button box. It was clearly a "real" one so this woman's husband must have had quite a career or her accumulation spanned some generation. I adore the "stories" you can find in a button box! You can also see one of the two carved wooden buttons in the upper right corner.
Some fun plastics and wafers and a couple of plain vegetable ivory in the bottom right..
A little group of glass buttons and one carved MOP on the left side and two matching tight-tops down at the bottom. I have found that white milk glass button with the ridges before but it was chipped. This one is perfect so made me happy! There is always room for a few more buttons.
Now a little confession... the dust hasn't really settled and I am off to pack up some Christmas decorations.
