Another great find!!!!!



O.K. - Last post I said buttons were fairly rare to find around here- but this weekend my daughter and I stumbled onto a Garage Sale and found a bag full of buttons.


Actually I found this little darning egg and asked the lady if there any other old sewing things, like buttons. She said "Yes- I just didn't think anyone would be interested- I have a bag of buttons , if you'd like to see them".


They are just wonderful- lots of variety!!

I sometimes feel I'm the last person on earth who knows what a darning egg even is. Yours is great--looks like it had a lot of use. Great buttons too, of course!

Wow, cool find. I know what a darning egg is, we had a blue and white one to mend socks on when I was little,lol! I like that little chamber pot in the pic,too.
