Little bag of buttons

I had to rescue this little bag of buttons from the thrift store; I could kind of see there was nothing really special in it...
 but I still couldn't resist!
I'm glad I did; the black and white one on the upper right looks like a buffed celluloid -- but it's just plastic.  Still pretty though! 
Let's see your rescues!

I found these 2 buttons in a large jar of mixed vintage buttons. I found the jar in a thrift store. These buttons are made of a brown/black molded plastic. They are to look like wood.They are approximately 1.5 inches round. They look like they belong on a vintage jacket or coat.

Roosters everwhere!!

I uploaded these pics a while ago and never did the post.  Found these buttons at an antique show New Years day in Glastonbury CT.   I am making a quilt using a damaged quilt top that I am recycling and was looking for buttons for it and found these.

I Love the blue baby face button, right above it the tennis player button, and the Victorian pressed glass buttons. 
Another dealer had a small box of rooster buttons in a variety of colors and sizes.  He wanted $25 for the lot.  I just wanted a couple and he said I could take a "couple for free"!  I had a real hard time deciding and finally said would you take $20 for the box ... he said yes!   Can't imagine where these buttons came from.  Some kind of a promotion maybe?
For some reason they tickled my fancy!  Had to have them.  They are being incorporated into my quilt which I have named aptly "Cock-a-doodle-doo".
