Grannie's buttons

I was going through a jar of my Grandmother's buttons I got out of her sewing basket; I had already put them in a large glass jar and was just reminiscing.  Some of the cards says 10 cents and some 29 cents. She had several cards of large buttons, she was always sewing . She was born 1907 and lived until 1996. I sure miss her company.  She taught me to put zippers in when I was about 8 years old, also sleeves; never had any problems doing either.
                                                                                                       
     
                                                                             

I love these black glass buttons, not a very good picture but you know what I'm talking about?
                   

I sure wish I had known about the Missouri Button Show.  I am going to look around and get on the mailing list of shows here in Missouri or Kansas.

Beautiful collection of buttons, seeing the art and the way they are displayed on the cards is often a little canvas.

Thanks for sharing them. I seem to have a weakness for the black glass buttons!

What a cool array of buttons and they carry an added element when still affixed to their original cards, like Pearl Maple said "Often a little canvas". Yes indeed!
