9.27.11 ... vintage buttons all in a row

9

last week we went to fred and i found a button here and a button there. it was like finding a needle in a haystack. but some of them are pretty cool.

i love these old button cards. there's one with a pine tree scene. it's my favorite. they are so old that they are disintegrating. the prices give us a clue as to their age. honestly. a card full of buttons for .29 or .39?

i love the teeny tiny purple cluster. i couldn't believe i found those in that giant bin filled with junk.

the ships are intriguing.

a nice woman saw scout and i hunting for these and said she had a basket full of crafty items she'd found and she went and got them and handed them to us. it was so refreshing. i wondered didn't she want them and she said she only took them to save them because they were about to remove that bin and they would all go to the dump. i love that. it is something i would do. oddity loves company. you know that saying, don't you? sadly, we only chose a few small things, but the bins we left the remainder in were not going to be pulled right away. hopefully someone came along and loved them. she did have a huge plastic bag filled with smaller, sealed bags of matching buttons. i will show those another night soon. they are really nice. i think they are old also.

there's the pine tree card - the navy blue one with 10 cents on it. it is so fragile. i had fun arranging them and look forward to using them on what i know will be special projects.

sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
