Months ago I won a big lot of vintage buttons on ebay. When they arrived, I was quite disappointed in what I had won. I quickly went through them, throwing the more interesting ones in a pile.
This morning I finally took a look at the interesting ones. They were filthy.
As I soaked and gently scrubbed them, I discovered that I had some real jewels. Some of these old buttons are stunning. I wonder what garments they once adorned?
Now that they're all cleaned up, I need to come up with something to do with them. I'm sure I'll figure something out...
