We took a trip to NY in June for my niece's wedding. WOW! Was she a beautiful bride, and the groom wasn't to bad either LOL.
Well before going my Mom called and told me that we will have carte blanche to go through a friend of the family's sewing things. A dear friend, Jerry, of ours had passed away a few years ago and his partner Roy, is finally selling the house. He told Mom that we are welcome to come and take whatever we need. Well I tell you, I sorted through button for a solid week. I am not kidding. I have so many buttons and they are all so gorgeous. They are bone, pearl, wood, metal, you name it. I also received a lot of thread along with a board that someone made to hang all the thread on.
A lot of fabric and some wonderful ribbon. He was of German descent and he must have liked that style because it is of the Bavarian/Swiss style, with the Edelweiss and reds and blues. There are some really pretty pink flower ones, just gorgeous. I also received a lot of miscellaneous items, but all will be put to good use that is for sure.
