Back To The Regular Agenda
After all the looking and limited buying I was ready for a good pick before the end of my vacation. These are the treasures I found the weekend after I got home.
I hit one estate sale and the VOA. There was no shortage of poke sacks or buttons, like it had all been waiting for me to find and rescue it.
One sweet little Golden Book and loads of random sewing notions including tomato pincushions and tape measures for my non-collections.
A Styrofoam head to put on one of those stands I got a while back because I really need more projects waiting in the wings - lol! Yes, that is a jar of buttons under it.
Any ideas what this is besides cool? It looks like a butter crock but the ones I have seen are wider than they are tall, not the other way around.
These spoon racks WILL get painted white and head to Etsy for hankie display. The wall hanging has already come and gone on Etsy.
A great old Emerald Green vase to add to my collection. I DO collect Emerald Green and Royal Ruby. On purpose. This vintage wallpaper was being used as shelf liner in a bedroom closet. When I went up front to see if I could buy it they looked at me like I was a little nuts. Okay, maybe so...
A couple more thimbles to add to my jar. I love it when I find the advertising ones. I bought a baggies filled with debutantes and doves that has already come and gone on Etsy.
Sweet set of blue and white dishtowels in their original wrapper.
These are not the buttons in the jar. They were much cleaner. Never confuse dirty with valuable. I kiss a lot of frogs in my hunt for buttons. I will show my favorites in another post but have to show you this because so many of you ask about it....
This is a perfect (??) example of a SICK celluloid button. It hasn't started to crumble yet but it is about to. I kept it just long enough to take this picture then tossed it in the trash. If you have anything that looks like this, get rid of it!
