Captured Memories: Granny’s Button Box

Mick has a collection of  ‘memory boxes’ designed to frame objects that are of sentimental value.

In the olden days  when 50 pee was 10 bob (and you could have a night out,  a fish supper and still have change from a fiver) everyone used to recycle without thinking. Buttons were snipped off clothes that were done with and a box or jar of buttons was common. Many a child was kept quiet  playing with the buttons.
