in the red

craigslist run. first this, then, quite a bit later, this box, and then these.


and now these



a grandmother’s and mother’s button collection. i used to not care about whether there were any sets of buttons in the buttons i bought, but now i seem to be doubly pleased when there’s more of one of something.  especially when they’re red ;)

  1. Cosy, these pictures are wonderful! I love thinking about the history of the buttons too :) I have some from the women in my family and though some were never used, some of them definitely were (I love it, it makes me smile!)
