button or button`s

Post by knotalot » Fri Jun 29, 2018 5:03 pm

Hi all/ been back in my Shed/her garage today this time to sort out and tidy up some of my buttons
I have got most of them together, now all i have to do is some research and make as many as i can sound interesting so i get to keep them ::g
Here is one i picked out today and done some research on
button or buttons 005.jpg
The St Alphage Society was formed in 1738 under the direction of the Reverend J. Broughton, secretary of the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge. A weekly evening lecture was supported from Society funds and in 1751 a school was opened to clothe and educate five (later increased to thirty) poor children. For many years the school was associated with the City of London First National Schools in White Street, Finsbury, but on the closure of these premises in 1879 an agreement was made for the education of 20 poor boys and 20 poor girls at the Aldersgate Ward School, then at 160 Aldersgate Street. The Society originally met in the vestry of St Alphage London Wall and subsequently at various locations across the City including (successively) Newgate Street, Cannon Street, Aldersgate Street and Little Britain. The Society disappears from trade directories in 1960.
And here are a few i have yet to do (:|

That lot should while away those long winter nights, possibly for about the next 20 years or so! :D

When you showed us your balls a few weeks ago you had my sympathy, but now I have seen your buttons I am starting to agree with your wife.

In fact the amount of time you must have spent detecting to find that lot I am surprised your wife even recognises you.

I think the point is that he’s losing his shed. He’s meant to be clearing it out.

It isn’t going well as you can tell -=+:-P

I've see coffee tables covered in dimes and old coins (instructions on youtube) and polished up....maybe you could do something similar with your buttons (at least the flat ones) That way you get to keep them, display them and use them. Perhaps some would also look good stuck on mdf and made into trivets and coasters?
I am currently making a mosaic using old pottery shards (mostly green and yellow glazed ware).
