If you've been here for a while, you might know that I'm quite partial to a bit of op shopping. Which is where I find most of my craft supplies and collect all sorts of odds and ends along the way. I thought I might do a few posts about my collections, just for fun.
Today's collection is buckles. I wish I knew more about these, all I can say for sure is that the tiny blue one is made of glass, the huge black one is painted wood and the others from some type of plastic, possibly cellulose acetate (like the top left green buckle and that blue one on the right; they have a flecked, iridescent effect). I'd say they're from the 40's, I can just imagine the women dressing up their simple war-time outfits with these snazzy accessories.
