Button Bonanza

My box of buttons I purchased on e-bay arrived yesterday...  Imagine my surprise when I opened it and bundles of carded buttons are wrapped in   tissue  and tied with lace bows. At the bottom of the box is a large 5# bag of loose buttons and immediately I can see many are unique and vintage... Right on top is a large MOP like the ones I'm always looking for.






It is much too exciting to go through alone so I have left everything unopened and invited a friend over this afternoon to help me sort through the loose ones and open all the packages...  What fun..

Oh, how fun!!!! Don't you just love buying a bunch of goodies at once and going through the bunch slowly. ; )
Have a great day!

A friend to share the excitement of a great find (or buy) is the best thing. :)

I have a serious case of button envy! One of my favourite rainy day things when I was a kid was to get out the button box and sort through them all...and I'm still the same. I have 13 quart canning jars and 2 - 2-quart ones full of buttons sorted by colour on the top of my computer desk so I can see all the pretty colours and shapes.

I am SO glad it worked out! And I now exactly the oohs and aaahs you're talking about. My Mom used to help me sort buttons and we'd have so much fun.
