Box of Buttons
Every old woman must have a box of buttons… my Gran did. Not this box, this box I bought today at a thrift shop. I want to use them in a project I have in my head.
As I sat down and went through all the buttons taking out the threads and tacks and little bits of fluff… I started thinking who’s box of buttons this had been?
She had an old pencil that was sharpened with a knife I would guess… and to a nub! I don’t know how she even held it! There were three keys! The top of two lamps, you know the old ones that had the thing that screwed on to keep the shade in place… one brass and knobby the other a ship with sails flying! There was a marble and 2 lego pieces, an elephant pendant… 25 Danmark coin, and a variety of religious metals. Oh yeah and buttons of course!
All tucked away in a tin with only one working hinge!
I couldn’t help but wonder and also think back to my grandma’s button box! I could even find buttons my grandma had too! Even so far away the buttons were the same! Lol!
It was well worth the 5 Euro I paid for it… I got so pleasure from just looking at the treasure inside and dreaming even if I never do anything with it… it was worth it!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
