B is for Buttons

B is for Buttons
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I love buttons.  They pose such a world of possibility.  I see them and I contemplate what can I make to use them on?  The center of a flower? To button a  Gnome jacket? To adorn a tiny pair of baby booties?
I recently bought a pound of buttons and sorted them by color,  put them in jars, and lined it up like a rainbow on my window shelf.  It makes me happy every time I see them.
 


I also bought these wonderful homemade buttons off a vendor on Etsy.  Aren't they fabulous?  she cut them from a tree branch, drilled holes and sealed them.  I made a slouchy hat and used one to decorate it. 
 Do you love buttons as much as I do?
