Replacement Buttons

The day started with finding replacement buttons for a lovely lace shirt whose only issue was rusting buttons. It ended with a love affair for vintage sewing notions.

This shirt suffered from a white fabric wrapped around a metal button foundation that rusted upon washing. Claire asked me to find some 1950s buttons to replace the ailing ones. A few years back I picked up a sewing box from the Salvation Army filled with old sewing supplies, including the buttons above. Here are a few pictures of all the other sewing notions I found.
