Buttons ...

Everyone has buttons lying around, right? I used to have them scattered all over the house and eventually collected them all into a small vase. Every time I get a new sweater or shirt, off comes the little plastic bag with the button and into the vase it would go. Not long ago, I transformed a simple tin can with buttons. I used a good amount of the buttons I had so I ordered more and I'm waiting for them to arrive. I have no immediate plans to do anything with them, but I'm sure I'll do something with them in the future. Here are a few things I've come across using buttons.

I have to post this one first.

Isn't that amazing?? That's a lot of buttons! I wonder how long it took to make that.

Here are a few more ...

Happy Tuesday!

  2. I love buttons and love all these great ideas!! What could be sweeter than a bag of WHITE BUTTONS!!!! ~~~~~~BEAUTIFUL~~~~~Blessings,Deborah

  3. Oh WOW, I love how all the buttons were used. This was such an inspiration for me to do somethings with the buttons I have, that are just put away. Thank you for sharing this!

  4. I love the touch of sparkle it lends to the area! Great job!

  5. My grandaughyter is a blogger and shares with me what other bloggers are doing. We both love buttons and I am thrilled with this post. I am 80 years old and in good health but have stopped doing much crafting. I am inspired by you and will get my button collection out NOW. Jodeen Aven

  6. Welcome Jodeen!
    80 years young. ;-) Older generations have so much to share. You should continute crafting! I only have 1 grandparent left and she lives so far away. I so wish she lived closer to me so that she could teach me all that she knows.

    Thanks for the visit!
