Bag o' buttons

I found another bag of buttons at the thrift store and "splurged" the $2.99 on them because I could see there were lots of my favorites -- mother of pearl and shell buttons!  But, there was more than that...  Some very nice steel and metal buttons, and, the ones on the far left are glass with embellished tops!  More glass, tied together -- I just love that!  A few pretty celluloid, composition, and bone buttons, too!  All of the ones that are the same, on the left, are painted glass!  The ones in the very front are so special: one clear glass with ruffled edges, and one that is enameled!  Such a treat! As always, a few extras in the mix: a belt buckle made from what I think is apple juice Bakelite, a little pin from a service group, and some wooden beads.  You just never know what you'll find in a bag of buttons!
