Button-ing at the Worldwide Antique Show

Yesterday I had a chance to attend the Worldwide Antique & Vintage Show, which takes place in Denver 3 times each year.
It's a big antique show held in an expo center -- full of friendly vendors and TONS of beautiful things...
like this "poke bowl" full of buttons!  Did you see the charm string sitting just to the left of it?  I HAD to take it home with me!
Someone who loved her buttons put it together...
and added some other little trinkets, too.
The buttons are not particularly valuable but I thought it was so charming that, for $10, it was irresistible.
I also grabbed these little "gems" from the poke bowl: a large rhinestone-metal button, missing a few stones but I love it anyway, a pink plastic flower with a sparkly paste center, a two-toned yellow plastic, diamond-shaped one, a velvet fabric button, and a "tight-top."
Here's what they look like on the reverse.
Buttons just make me happy!
