Vintage Buttons

This past week in the Willamette Valley it has been...
raining, windy and very grey outside.

so... I decided to work on a project that
 I have been wanting to do for a long time.

Going thru Vintage Buttons!

I have had this Vintage Metal Box of my
 Mother's for almost 20 years since she passed away.


It was fun to think about the sewing we use to do together.
Picking out the perfect button to sew on the garment.


I have selected my favorite buttons to use on cards.
Placed the buttons in some special jars!


The metal box has to be from the 1960's or early 1970's.

My sister Lori and I think they had cookies in the 
metal box from the photo on the bottom of the box.

Then my Mom stored her buttons in the special box.

Of course I am saving the plastic bag of buttons
in the metal box to remember my Mom!

And yes... there were a few happy tears shed
while looking and sorting thru the box of buttons.
