More stuff I came home with!

NOTE:  The name in this post has been changed to protect the innocent.

These are buttons that I found.  Most of them are going into my collection but I have listed the football and 2 kittens in my Etsy shop.  I love the glass Scottie dog on the bottom and the two from the Cocktail set.  Now, I have to find one that is Sidecar to finish that set!

Look at how kitschy these are!  Cheap plastic paper plate holders!  No more collapsed plates with these!

 Now, this needs some explaining.  The chalk is for me, the bowling pin will be for sale but it's the paper I love!  Am I the only one that remembers this type of paper for learning to write the alphabet??  My friend, Kathy (name has been changed) just can't picture this and why would I want it?  That I'm really not sure about.  It has that aged yellow look to it and there's no zip code on the packaging, which does date it.  Here's my dilemma, should I keep it and if I do, what would I do with it?  If I sell it, would anyone be interested in it?

They had other colors like green and blue paper but this one appealed to me the most!

Check out the label on the package:

Let's move on.  

These are candle holders for a birthday cake!  I have 2 sets of them.  Have a closer look:

There's animals in the center four train cars!

I don't know if this is old or not and I can't find anything about it on the Internet.  I'm not even sure yet what the base is made of, it could be a lightweight metal.  Look at how pretty the base is!

Stay tuned for more finds tomorrow!  I promise, no more paint by numbers!

What? So much more? Where do I begin? First off, if I didn't have those kitty buttons, I would have grabbed them from your shop.
Second. I'm in love with train candle holders, so cute and the lined paper brought back memories of learning to write. Thanks for sharing your finds. Dare I ask, do you have more?
