Vintage collector

The past week was horrible, my hubby first, then my son and then me was affected by  Stomach flue… Uh. My photo class took a stop but I was able to take some pictures this morning. And here they are, I am a Vintage lover and collector, someday this past summer I bid a lovely auction at Ebay for less than 5 euros and won a sewing tin box filled by some lovely treasures, like those lovely threads in wooden spools! There was also this stunning button, that from my research will be located between 1930 – 1950. the Crown & GPO button was used on the General Post Office Military Jackets and it is supposed produced by Staples & sons; I found a photo of the Female Military Jacket in the early ’40 that seems to have those buttons on.

    Oh, I’m sorry to hear tat you were all knocked flat by a stomach bug! That is no fun, especially for the little ones.
    Your photos are lovely! Isn’t it amazing the difference that just a little bit of extra knowledge can bring to your work?
