Buttons-part of the giveaway
My friend's grandfather used to be a tailor. She cleaned out the attic and gave my four large freezer bags of buttons. I am still sorting through them. She gave me the button filled cookie tin. I don't think I'll need to buy buttons for the rest of my life! The items to the left of the second photo are not studs! They're buttons! I am particular about the silver crested buttons. And I love the green crested ones. (first photo). They don't seem to be made from nickel, but sterling silver (last photo). I am having them checked out. Check out the motif on the silver button in the photo with the amber buttons. It looks like an Egyptian charioteer! Some of these will be part of the upcoming giveway.
