Oh My Man, I Love Him So....

Yesterday evening, Anders brought home something amazing. I can't go into too much detail just yet, but I can only describe the following hours as such; you know those scenes in old films or cartoons when a character finds piles of treasure, and dives in, swimming around in it? Well, that was me last night.
I took a 'treasure bath'.
So. Many. Buttons. Gold, silver, and all very old. A few bakelite here and there. Plus, a ton of other stuff I need to keep secret for now. This photo is just a small sampling of the huge grip of stuff I snagged for myself.

Gold French military buttons in disintegrating pink tissue and card stock. The package with the exquisite handwriting is a never opened card of German silver braid. All of it probably from around WWI, and could be used for much earlier projects.
It's the stuff of romance....
