Thrift store find!


Wow, look at this great thrift store find. It is a large glass jar filled to the brim with buttons, snaps, lace and trims. It must be very old because it also had at the bottom those parts of a girdle that would grasp the old nylons and attach them to the girdle. I can't think of a name for them.
Anyhow I was thrilled because there were many old type vintage buttons in the jar. I can't wait to start a new project and use them!

Yipee and who doesn't love old buttons. They are so much fun to look at and wonder what kind of outfit they used to be on!

Isaiah 45:3 says "I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places."
Wow this felt like a treasure to me. When I am creative with something I have found I believe I am honoring God, he was the most creative of all! Isaiah 42:5 "God, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spreads forth the earth and that which comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to those who walk on it:"
Blessings, Debbie

Hello Debbie,
It is so nice to meet you. I was raised a country girl on a farm, so I know what you mean...I live in town now, but it is still pretty rural. I love your thrift store finds and am a
button lover also. I so enjoyed your visit and your praise music is so wonderful! Thanks for sharing and please visit again. Have a blessed day Pinkie Denise
