Button Collections

Recently, I acquired a few more button collections! Maybe it's me, but I find it so relaxing going through them all! I thought I would show a few of them every once in a while!

This first one is a coconut shell realistic of a pineapple. Also know as a goofie!

Pretty lucite with brass escutcheon (below).

Bakelite Scottie dog. I received two of these that are the same shapes but one is blue and one is black. You can see the blue when held up to the light!

Bakelite fastener! Butterscotch yellow and root beer brown.

I received a boatload of nice picture buttons. I know very little about these and will be researching them and hope to show a few in the next few days.

I had to go to the post office on Friday so I decided to make a stop at a thrift shop I haven't been to in a very long time! I walked in and saw how much they opened up the rooms and how nice it was organized now! A whole room for linens! A room for toys and kid's clothes. Housewares everywhere! And the best part, now there's a basement opened for furniture, electronics and more housewares!
I saw this pitcher and kept trying to walk away from it. But something made me take it! It was so filthy dirty, I wondered why it attracted me. I washed it up and just look at it sparkle! I found out it's a West Virginia Game Pitcher.
I love finding rhinestone items! This one is pretty plain, but has a special feature. The clasp is just wonderful! It's a rhinestone box clasp to die for!
It's a choker necklace!

Tuppercraft trio planter in sunny yellow! I can just see herbs planted in this and on a windowsill somewhere!
Tupperware cereal bowls!
I, also, purchased another dictionary for my word paper beads and four skeins of WOOL yarn! Great for felting and only 50 cents a skein. Probably should have bought more of that!
No photos of these, but I found 12 more paper plate holders in those wonderful vintage colors! A few more fish ones like listed on Etsy and a new style I don't have yet. Makes me want to have a picnic!
