Buttons


Well I am adding a picture of my old buttons to all the other blogs that are showing theirs. These are from a neat blue bottle, that I am pretty sure belonged to my Grandmother Dirkse, who was no longer alive when I was born. My mom had saved them, and after checking out the other button blogs, I found out they were 19th century glass calicos and stencils, how cool is that? I wonder if these were saved from clothes, or new or what their story is. It is fun to imagine. I just always loved the looks of them, and knew they were old.

Hello Dianee,
I too had a grandmother who saved buttons and had a beautiful button box. I used to play with them as a child. Now I still use the odd one or two for sewing projects!

Love the buttons! I wish I had my grandmothers. Thanks for stopping by my blog -- yes, it is good to see other Midwest bloggers. My daughter attended Bethel for two years, but is in Cincy now.

Looks like we are in the same empty nest situation!

Hmmm..wonder what happened to my profile! I'll look into it. Thanks.
