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".
