These buttons belonged to a lady I knew who was the only surviving member of her family. She was about 84 back then (28 years ago) and I used to love hanging out with her. She and I would drink beer and she'd show me her vintage treasures; old photos, fabrics, sewing notions, dishes, letters whatever related to a story she was telling me.
Many of the women in her family sewed but not her. Yet she ended up with all the family, heirloom sewing notions.
At some point my dear friend started giving me things. She said I was the only one interested in her old stuff. I felt so honored to be the keeper of her things. When she passed away it was so sad to think that there was no one else. She had outlived all of her family and she had been an only child, never having children of her own. She was such a sweetheart and an example of incredible perseverance.
There are things that she gave me that I use daily and will cherish forever. And there are a lot of things that have no place in my life. I've been listing various items, after holding onto them all these years and realizing that I'm not going to use them. I'm grateful for the Internet and the ability to reach people all over the world. Now these little items can find a new home, new use and not be shut away in a box, serving no purpose at all.
