I have looked through the boxes many times over the years. The other day I got the button boxes out to share them with my daughter for the first time. She had a wonderful time sorting, matching, and discovering all of their treasures.
|My grandmother, Barbara's, button box on the left. Audrey's on the right. She can hardly wait!|
I love the designs on the tin, and the "Joy" on the other box is so cheery and fun.
Here we are digging into the boxes...
Each box contains so many fun things. Audrey's box has lots of buttons still attached to their original cards. Awesome! I love the six black faceted buttons on one card for 29 cents! 29 cents - imagine that! Look closely and you can see an applique "H," a pair of yellow earrings with screw backs, tiny seed pearls, and even a marble. My favorite button is the blue button with white accents (it is around the middle on the left side of the picture). It reminds me of Wedgewood china. Which is your favorite?
