Treasures in the house: A find in an old tin

Do you know what´s that?


it´s the front of an enamel oven...


it can open the mouth wide.. and there is space for little things... well we can not enamel huge things. But when we were kids, we enameled pendants and small coins changed to colorful artworks.


when we were kids we used Deutsche Pfennig, now we would use Eurocents. 
I tried to find this little pieces.. I thought I kept them in this little red box. 
But all we found were buttons. A handmade button of the leather jacket our father weared when he was young. A button of grandmas engagemend dress. And a button of the first garment I bought from my selfearned money. 



But we will think about the place where we could have kept this enamaled pieces. We are sure they still must be anywhere. And will post them then..... 



To find more buttons head over to Petronella from Kraplap

  9. My grandma had a big box of buttons! We kids love to play with them and we made buttons pictures. In previous days everything was collected. I also remember that my grandpa collected used nails and hammered them straight for further usage.
