Bag Trims

Went hunting for "bag" trims, and came home with the mother load. Looks like someone's needling granny may have passed away, and her 7 sons threw all her bits and bobbins in a bag and hauled it off to the thrift shop. After sifting through a tonne of crap, I came away with some terrific vintage buttons, a bunch of trims and ribbons, and some belt buckles for Michelle, if they are anything she can use for her funky candy wrapper belts. There are also these packages of sewing needles that must have come as samples along with flour, and milk. How come we don't get treats with our flour and milk any more?

Who's got the buttons


(if you say that just right, it sounds kinda cool.)

I think you are correct. Seven sons. Never understood Ma.

You did fabulous!!!

Oooh, good work! I like those bright red buttons.
The girlies and I picked up 2 big jars of buttons at the local MCC this week. After supper we sorted and sorted and sorted. Then we put them back in the jar for now.

Looking at all those buttons reminded me of the old glass jar my mom had full of them when I was a little girl...all shapes, all colors, all sizes. I used to love to dump them out and just sift them thru my hands. Alas, I am NOT a seamstress and do next-to-no sewing of any sort -- my Dear Hubby does his own mending on his hunting clothes! -- but I've always loved buttons. I came over from Judy's "Anybody Home" site...enjoyed my visit here very much. Please stop by if you get a chance some time...the door's always open! :-)
