Grandma’s fashions from various eras

Recently i was looking through  some old family photos and i came across a lot of my Grandma (Dad’s mum) Eleanor  who was born in Linlithgow, Scotland in 1905.

The photo below was probably taken in about 1915, Grandma is the girl on the front row nearest the window  incidently all the people in this photo are her siblings.

The next photo is of grandma (in the middle) and 2 of her sisters probably taken in the late 1920’s?

This one of Grandma was taken in the late 1940’s i think? with my Dad’s 2 cousins.
Visit my ebid store for vintage buttons and patterns and create your own fashion from the past.
I have lots to list so please check my store regularly.

Recycle Vintage Buttons into Fun Jewelry Bracelets

Continuing on the theme of vintage buttons, we’re showing the bracelets made of vintage buttons. If you are like me and most other vintage clothing addicts you have a large stash of buttons hoarded away. The bracelets or other jewelry is a fun way to use and show off some of those buttons. These are sewn onto wide elastic bands, so they will fit various arm sizes.

Whether you choose to use glass, plastic, Bakelite, celluloid or metal buttons you can produce any number of great looking pieces. Selecting the colors and sizes is not only fun but challenging to find just the right combinations to stack. Adding in a few beads or small charms also gives the bracelet some identity or theme.
