buttons, buttons, buttons!

while in texas, i was on a mission to find certain things. like pretty buttons and button cards with nice old graphics. apparently i was quite enthusiastic and vocal about this. because when we returned to the bed and breakfast after our first day of shopping, my niece gently informed me that i reminded her of this:


i wouldn't have believed it, except for that nagging memory of the first auction that i ever attended. according to reports from family, i cheered and carried on every time i got the highest bid. which is apparently not appropriate auction behavior. especially here in the stoic midwest. they say people were laughing at me. and it's okay - i do tend to be enthusiastic.

well, here are the darling buttons. i didn't crop these photos - and my camera does not do well in macro mode. so just click on the photos if you want to see them larger:)





oh - and here is a pretty mirror from a friendly texas dealer. i placed it on our piano for the time being.

I'm over here laughing so hard...That is so funny about you cheering when you won the highest bid...People at auctions have their game face on..I think they should be more like you instead of so serious(hehe)....Love all the button cards you got...I especially love the little baby one..
