My mum sent me these a while ago. I know these buttons as well as I know my own hands. I used to play with them as a kid. They used to be stored in the beautiful draws of her old singer sewing machine. They still smell the same. My mum told me that these buttons come from different countries and some must be over 60 years old! And if you love buttons checkout Obsidian Kittens ETSY shop! drool. But you better hurry as I'm checkin' them out right now!!!!!
