Wanted to share my weekend finds, I really love the little sterling silver Baby bib kitty clips, and in their original box how sweet. And then the childs celluloid prayer book is in pristine condition. And of course you know I always pick up the vintage linens can never pass those up! And then I found a large box of 1950's vintage children's clothes, but do keep in mind they have been in there for some time and did need some TLC and some of the pieces just did not survive the time. But the yellow dress cleaned up well and a good pressing and wow it is to die for. It was weird when I was ironing all the cotton clothes and yes there is more to share it made me think of all the mothers in the 1950's and the housework would have been so much more difficult. Just the care taking of their children's clothes would have been a big undertaking. All the girls dresses ALL needed pressing. And my mom had 5 girls not sure how she did it, but she did and very well.

I also am sharing some of my favorite buttons, Analise from Sugar Sugar is having a button challenge so I picked some of my favorite little treasures to share. I really love buttons, when we were kids us girls would get out our Moms big button tin and play with them we would sort and create little button families, we had quite the imagination I guess. The beautiful vintage button bracelets were an Estate Sale find and they are both dripping with to die for Vintage buttons. You must check out all the wonderful buttons  everyone else is sharing. And thanks for stopping by, it is always a pleasure to have company.

I used to play with my buttons as a little girl, too! I would imagine they were ladies in pretty dresses. My favorites are those colored plastic ones that look like flowers. Thanks for sharing your collection.
