My parents are collectors of all sorts of things and so my mom scrounged around and found some items in need of a new home. Look what was in the box!
|A huge cache of buttons old and new|
|Trifari, my guess is 1980's|
|I'm thinking brass, not sure if the elephants are resin or bone|
|Another elephant motif item|
|I believe these are glass as they are peeling and a bit discolored. The clasp has the word JAPAN stamped into it|
|This piece belonged to my Aunt Dorothy and although the clasp is broken I am not going to disassemble this one.|
|Modern art looking set, earring missing|
|Button bracelet, a good idea that needs to be improved upon|
|Not sure what these were for, but they are cool|
|The rest of it|
I also received a great big stack of vintage handkerchiefs from the estate of my Aunt Dorothy. Not sure what I could do with these yet, but I love the embroidery and the idea of more genteel times when a lady always carried a handkerchief.Thanks for stopping by today on my tour of goodies. I will post my creations in the future. Now go check out those drawers and attics for your own treasures!
