The Rest of Those Buttons
When we returned from vacation last weekend I finished cleaning and sorting that huge tin of buttons. I already showed you the plastics in this post. These are the rest of the "keepers". The buttons above are all glass. The little ducky is my favorite!
LOTS of MOP in that tin! On the far left are the dyed ones, or the far right are the abalone shell and the apothecary jar full is already listed in my Etsy.
These are the ones I kept for myself.
Bone buttons. I don't know why I'm so stupid on those silly things. I think I just like the resourcefulness of using what was on hand.
On the far left there are some unusual leather and metal ones. The round ones at the bottom are wood. The rest are wafers and tight tops.
Most of the metal buttons were in pretty bad shape but I did save a few. I am especially fond of the copper in the upper left.
Vegetable ivory and a few uniform buttons.
These two little Cub Scout buttons are my favorite from the uniforms.
This was a HUGE lot and I've gotten my buttons fix for a while!
