While I was on vacation I had the rare pleasure of getting to spend time with a dear friend IN PERSON. We stay in touch but we both work full time so face time is a real treat. She surprised me with a blue Ball jar AND a tin of buttons.
She is not a button person but she knows I love them. She scored BIG on these. As soon as I started rolling over the jar and looking inside I realized it wasn't an ordinary jar of buttons. This was some one's collection!
There were very few "ordinary" buttons. These pearly ones look like earrings but they are buttons.
Extruded celluloid and a tiger-stripe glow bubble below it.
Glass buttons and some beautiful dark red casin buttons.
Some wooden buttons and some unusual rectangular metal buttons.
Green glass buttons seem to be the hardest to find and love those glass eye buttons!
As found. Thank you dear friend. The only thing better than sorting all these beautiful buttons was hanging out with you!
