This is what I have left after sorting through enough buttons to fill this jar at least twice. Most all of the buttons I saved are glass. There are a few cut steel buttons in there, but less than a dozen. Since this jar lost its lid I'm either going to have to come up with some sort of decorative cover for it to keep the dirt out or purchase a smaller container. I've been all through the house looking for something suitable and seem not to have anything. Haven't decided yet which route to take.
Here's about half the buttons I'll be sending off to Luci. This is a 1 gallon zip lock bag that's pretty much full.
There are lots of very nice buttons going off to live at Luci's house. Some glass, lots of metal, mother of pearl, and vegetable ivory as well as some interesting plastic ones. If Luci doesn't have a good button guide book she'd best run out and get one. I'd hate to see her throw away something valuable!
