These are very old.
Remember these.. boxes of cottons. My Mum had heaps too.And there were buttons... a friend was shopping for a button and it reminded me to look through my collection....and add to them of course.
I picked up the pretty amber coloured one (in the middle) from the recycled arts made of London Glass (says so on the back)... isn't it gorgeous.. I will have to make something to show it off.. a bag maybe...These are mostly buttons I've picked up at op shops and recycle shops. My friend's Mum also had lots of buckles.. she used to be a dressmaker and made wedding dresses and suits.
