In an ugly box...

can come such great stuff!A Used Brown Box This box recently appeared on my doorstep (one of those - oops, honey, I forgot to tell you "Mary Ann" stopped by - events).
I opened it up and took a gasp. You would not believe the number of beautiful vintage buttons that are in there!
From World War I and II military buttons
to ones that are purely decorative,
my button collection has gone from large to huge :) All thanks to a neighbor's mother downsizing her home. Sometimes I think I am way too lucky to have the great friends I do!

Lucky you. I wish someone would drop off a box of treasures like that for me.

Talk about winning the lottery ! What a wonderful stash of vintage buttons! After opening that box you should have gone out and purchased a lottery ticket as it was obviously your very lucky day.

Wow! I wish I'd thought of the lottery ticket! I've probably missed my one chance at millions :)
