Old buttons

A few days ago I went to my hometown to see my parents ..
I asked for my mother to find  her old buttons....
When she was young she made all her clothes..
and she makes many thinks yet  like curtains, pillows and other things..
So she brought me an old glass vase with her old buttons.....
and she asked me why I need these and what I could use these old things ....
Anyway she don't likes old things ....

This is my treasure ..... 



                                         She told me that these buttons were from her overcoat
                                         since 1950 !!!

                                         The green one was from her jacket ...
                                     

                                     And these from her good dress  when she was in first year
                                           marriage ...(1958)

I will use all these because  I used mine buttons   to make
fours pillows ......

                                           
                                          Have a nice  day

  1. How wonderful that you were able to get those old buttons from your mom. Your pillows are great and I know you will put all those buttons to good use, too. Have fun! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. You must have had fun sorting through those old buttons from your Mum. It's good that she kept them. Now you can look at them and enjoy them when you sew them onto pillows. The green one from her coat is very pretty.

  4. Dearest Olympia,

    This is so nostalgic and even more so since you know the story that goes with your Mother's old buttons. Precious for keeping and you are very creative for putting them to good use.
    Love to you,

    PS I finally, after our vacation in Curaçao, got my blog roll problem solved and you now live on my sidebar too!
