Vintage mother of pearl original sample card ~ its a stunner!
Vintage mother of pearl buttons
my one weakness! (tee hee!)
I wanted to show you all my purchase from Ebay ... It arrived on Friday last week via the post and I am over the moon with it.
When I saw it and the buy in now price I watched it for a day or two and then thought actually I would really like this rare piece of history. Firstly I thought I will cut off the buttons and use these
I look at these beautiful buttons and think what I could do with them and them I look at them and feel a duty to preserve as they are now ..... arrrggggh what to do? anyone out there reading this, help me with your thoughts pleaaaasssse!
As you can see from the picture on the right they are beautiful and stitched in place on this card. The picture does not do them justice believe me!
And the coloured mother of pearl versions are just as lovely with a very light grey/blue, pink, blue, lemon, pale green, dark yellow/gold and finally a dark blue with a light middle... Oh they really are a thing of beauty.
I was thinking about stitching them on a sampler as leaves on a tree with all those colours and it would look so lovely but do I really split this history apart...
Oh well I will have to decide and as I say I would be grateful of any thoughts you all have please!
Have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching!
