Objects you find in button tins what to do with them?
Here is one idea someone had in the late 1800's..the pitcher was decorated using putty..there are buttons, coins, scissors, 2 old teeth, buckles, dolls, keys, thimbles, screws and many other various objects.
I have this pitcher now, the last owner sprayed it with gold paint..it sits on my computer desk on a turn table in a large glass dome..so I can spin it around to see all!
I don't have a camera, only a scanner so can't show you the real thing..but here it is on the cover of Just Buttons magazine.
