Grandma's treasures.......

On saturday, hubby and were out garage-saling and after I had purchased a couple of goodies from one house and started to walk away, I spotted this little treasure! The tin alone made me happy! But then I found that it was filled with vintage sewing goodies and lots of buttons....yippee! There were also needles, thread, cufflinks and garter clips...... fun! fun!

Button Collage

What a beautiful swap present my mailman brought me a few weeks ago. Laurie from Indulge Your Shelf was my It's About Time swap partner. She sent many, many lovely items. One of my favorites is this beautiful button collage on damask which Laurie stitched herself!! What care she put into this fabulous work!!! This is an heirloom that I will be sharing with generations to come!!! If you'd like to see more pics of all the other great sewing items I received from Laurie, please visit me at Unshelved Words !

Went to the flea on Sunday.....

I slipped away to the flea market on sunday with my friend Robin and got some fun stuff.... Here are some old-new stock millinery and a dolly dress and child's slip and of course..... BUTTONS! I always grab pink, blue and green buttons when I find them but who could pass up those pearly's? And that sweet little button card..... Heaven! Hope you have a great buttony week! karen....
