Good buy..?.hopefully!

I'm always on the lookout for extra large buttons on which I can paint cottages, barns, haunted houses etc. and they're not that easy to find at a price I can afford...

So when this batch of buttons came up on e-bay this weekend I bid because it looked like it had a lot of extra large buttons in it.  I won the bid and am anxiously awaiting the arrival...  Not sure what I'll do with all the rest.  Some I can use in crazy quilting and the rest I will probably take to a retreat in September to share...

When it comes and I sort it out, I'll let you know if it was a good buy or not... If I can get 12-15 buttons that are extra large (1 1/2" up) I'll very happy...

Oh, that looks like fun. Whenever I order something, I'm just like a little kid waiting for it to come in the mail...then opening it...then admiring my treasures. ; ) Hope you have many big ones in there!
