Button Bargains!

Well, this post may be a bit really quite random, but I HAD to share it with you.  I'm sure you all know by now how much I LOVE buttons.....

Well, when I managed to pick up an absolute HEAP of them last week (and all for just 3 Euros), I got a wee bit over-excited.  I whipped the camera out, and started snapping away.   I'm not going to tell how many photos I took of my new buttons. I think that might make you worry about my sanity.  But I will say that I took A LOT!!!

And so I thought I'd share just a few of them with you.  Fellow button-lovers, enjoy this feast for the eyes!  Normal folk, I apologise!  And those of you who suffer from koumpounophobia, look away now.....






Can you imagine how many hours of fun I had sorting and re-sorting these little beauties?!?  And then the hours of fun I had putting them in my colour-coordinated button jars?!?  That's another blog post possibility..... 

Happy weekend, everyone!

  16. Thanks for popping over to my blog :)
    Good to read yours too, I am a real button fan - until last week I worked in a button shop (Duttons for Buttons) where we had about 10,000 different types of button! Sadly had to give up as standing in the shop was not good for me.
