More goodies

I haven’t been very productive and I haven’t been getting out much so I don’t have much to say for myself here.  So you get another post on my shopping sprees!

The last spree provided some vintage lace.  Don’t know what I will do with them but they will have a life with me.

There was a string of random buttons. I think someone may have been trying to make a charm string.

I will take a quote from a Sentimental Quilter.

“In Stories of Mother Goose, little Tommy Tucker says, ‘You know what a charm string is. Just ever so many pretty buttons strung together and worn around your neck.’ Nineteenth century folk wisdom had it that a girl should acquire 999 buttons on a string. When she added the thousandth, she would meet her Prince Charming.”

One more item…IMG_20180916_210704317

A print of a fashion plate from 1869.  This will look nice when framed and hung on my sewing room wall.
