Vintage Buttons And A Few Surprises

My son-in-law JD gave me this amazing box full of old buttons for my birthday. 
Needless to say, I was thrilled to have this wonder gift bestowed upon me. 

Then... I started going through them to choose out what I wanted for card embellishing...

and I found a whole lot more than just old buttons!

These little mittens I believe are made from wool felt.... and look a these teeny, tiny buttons.

The shoe buckles have rhinestones in the most beautiful pastel shades ... 
they were in this little plastic box which I adore.

These two items are a real find... a Hampden watch and a button hook from
a shop in Canton, Ohio.
All in all, a perfect birthday gift!
