This week I went to an estate sale. There was nothing particularly special about the sale and I wasn't thrilled while I was there, but when I got home... I bought a button jar that didn't look very exciting -- I rolled it around and looked inside and there was only a few that looked remotely interesting. I almost bypassed it, but instead of being the usual $8 or $10 for the jar it was only $2.00. I thought that even the few remotely interesting ones would be worth at least that so I bought it. When I got it home I pulled out a pan and dumped out the buttons. I could scarcely see a button I wasn't interested in! How did that happen? They are mostly very old -- some even in the victorian era. I am thrilled. I have to spend some time to clean them up because some are very dirty, but here is a preview of a little of what thrills me. Some yummy shell buttons. I love thes things. Also think the buckles are pretty cool.
