When I opened the box, there were a few white buttons tucked away and the medication instructions still intact under the lid of the box. It’s dated 1951! The box is sixty-one years old. Amazing.
Pretty linens that have become soft over the years. Some are stained from use so I can use them as cutters for pillows or quilts.
Some of the buttons were still on their original cards. The card on the top right probably had 20 of those green buttons and is marked 19 cents. That’s less than a penny a button.
These buttons were stored on a large safety pin. I love this picture – such a simple idea that represents a simpler and slower paced time.
Thanks for visiting.
