i found another reverse carved lucite button

oh my GOD - look at this beauty!!!!

i couldn't believe my luck when i stumbled across this gorgeous button - but it just got better, i went too far bidding for this one, it is my most expensive yet, but after winning the auction by the skin of my teeth , the seller contacted me to see if i'd be interested in buying . . . . .



the rest of the set !!!!!!


a whole nest of birdie buttons

well it would be rude not to . . . . . . . . . . oh dear i must put myself back on the button diet . . . . :0(

i think i will be selling some of these - i need to recoup some funds!!!

Lordy, how unusual, what are they made of ? Could you buy a small pony with what you paid for them ? They look mighty old and expensive.

Have you tried using www.hammersnipe.com
You tell it your maximum bid and it places your bid in the last 3 seconds of an auction's end.
It means you don't get carried away in those last few seconds of an auction, PLUS you don't even have to have your computer switched on! It's brilliant!
Nice buttons by the way!

please don't worry girls - the house is safe - no remortgage required{yet}
but they are soooooo pwetty!!!

jellybelly* i've never heard of that but to be honest i love the thrill of the chase - i put a lot of time and effort into procuring my buttons and sometimes when i am unlucky i just "KNOW" who won - spooky -
i must get a real life - LoL.
