Grandfather’s Buttons

cropped4webMy grandfather was a tailor in New York City during the early to mid-1900s.

This is a photo of some of the hundreds of buttons he stored in a glass jar that came to be mine. Every once in a while I like to take them out, hold them up to the light and look at them.

Pretty aren’t they? The one near the bottom of the flower…that’s always been my favorite.
