Forever home for these special buttons.

Years ago I bought these buttons on Ebay.  They were on the original card and their origin was the USA zone of Germany so they can easily be dated to right after WW2 .  They are molded glass with a mirrored backing.  I have tried many times to use them but they always have been too glitzy or too large..  But I have found the perfect home for them and still have a five left.







I made  fabric journals of my needlework project with the theme of corsets. As you can see I used my lovely heart buttons to hold the "pages" together.
Each of the pages is faced with an ad from that time period..  I'm so glad I found a "forever" home for my beautiful old buttons..
