Friday Finds

Kim Klassen continues this week hosting Friday Finds.  This is what she says about it:

So many find possiblities.....unique treasures...... special moments..... life's lessons......little things.....big things too...... nature's beauty..... heart shaped stones, a special cup.....a pretty flower....wise words....

I was thrilled to bring home some more buttons from a sale I went to last Friday.

I was especially happy that they were in bags unsorted so I could have the pleasure of sorting them.
See those two on the left?!  Earrings they will be!

I don't mind the musty smell while sorting.

Nor do I mind the somewhat griminess that accompanies buttons tucked away in a jar or box for years and years.   Soap and water take care of that.

I posted a few years back about how much I like to sort buttons.

So, I guess along with the treasured buttons I found this week was the treasure of the peace that comes from sitting and sorting them.

My second to the youngest turned 8 today!  There is some more celebrating to do! 


  1. This post made me feel peaceful just reading it...they don't make buttons like that anymore. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled! These are SUCH treasures!

  2. Those buttons were a great find. I have a jar I bought at an Antique Mall that I need to go through.

  3. oh what a GREAT friday find! Who wouldn't love a box of buttons like this!

  4. What a fabulous find. They look very victorian era to me. And happy birthday to your 8 year old. What a grand time to have a birthday ... Yay summer!

  5. love your button treasures - there are plenty of lovely ones in there - and I know what you mean about the that too...

  6. Buttons are favorite little things of mine, too. What a find - there are some real beauties in your assortment. Sorting buttons is calming, I agree.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
