Whoo-hoo! Another jar of buttons at the same Goodwill as last week! This was a smaller jar, but it was priced at just $2.99, so I didn't even hesitate. Off the shelf, and into the cart.

First, an apology for the photos, which are blurry. Must be time to recharge the camera batteries. But I think they're clear enough to show how really cool they are, even the brown ones:

Some really great black buttons, too, especially that one with the red rhinestones:

Interesting white buttons:

A number of clear buttons were in the jar, including the two larger, cupped, buttons. I realized when I picked those two up that they're glass:

These red buttons are a lot prettier than they appear here:

Ceili (KAY-lee) thinks they're Very Interesting!

Oh! I have to tell you about Mama's score at the local thriftstore yesterday! They were having a bag sale--anything you could get into the bag they gave you, for $5.

I think I remember what she got in her $5 bag:

  • An old fashioned pitcher and bowl set
  • Two pieces of Depression Glass, one in Lariat pattern, the other I can't remember
  • Two pairs of shoes
  • Three unopened packages of tissue paper, in gold or silver
  • Two pair of earrings, one heart-shaped, one jade
  • A linen-look blazer
  • A dress
  • Four gift bags
My Mama rocks!

How about you? Picked up anything wonderful/cool/super-thrifty lately?

great buttons! I love... to look at them. I never use them, not sewing and all. And how'd your mama get all those things in one bag? Her new home is going to be overrun with things! {:-D
