Grandma's button box, by Cafe Sheri
So happy to see this What's In Your Button Box? post over at resurrection fern. Because I heart a good button box.
Above is my grandmother's button box and one of my favorite things. I
keep, well, mostly buttons in it. My own buttons and buttons leftover from my Grandma and also my
Great Aunties. It'll soon become apparent that all of these women survived the Great
Depression. They saved lots of buttons and other fun things off of garments, which I now treasure and can't ever throw away.
Here's some of what you'll currently find in my button box:
Misc. vintage buttons and thread
Brown leather buttons and pearl belt buckles
Pearl and white buttons and belt buckles
Brass rings and things, probably saved off old garments
My newborn hospital bracelet, thimbles, silver beads, etc.
