Oh, what a treasure! I adopted my mom's button collection a while ago, there was a huge box full of them when I was little.

Lucky you is right. These images evoke such memories. There's something magical when they are still on the cards, some yellowed, some brown.

it's wonderful to read everyone's comments. buttons seem to hold dear memories for lots of people. this past week, i've been going through the buttons and have used a few of the extra special ones for my knitted accessories. it's a little hard for me to let them go.
