Sunday Shinies: French Glass buttons

Here are the Sunday Shinies.

Yes, I am aware it’s Monday already, but last week was a bit crazy, culminating in what I fear might have been migraine. Or just the worst headaches ever. Either way, don’t want them again. And they kept me from taking photos. Or getting up and sitting at my PC. Or … you know, anything 😦

However, today is a new day, and here they are!

These are from the 1920s, or so I have been told. I love them – in fact, so much, that I haven’t yet found a worthy piece of clothing to put them on.

They are about 1cm in diameter, and their size would be perfect for a blouse. But since they are made from glass, they are relatively heavy, and I believe a lightweight fabric would not support them very well … ah, for now, I’ll just keep them in my drawer and bring them out from time to time to be admired.

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
