National Button Day!!
And this is how I'm celebrating . . .
This just arrived in the mail yesterday, a cookie tin full of old buttons I bought off e-Bay.
If you've been paying attention, you know that I've been making jewelry out of old buttons. Like this pendant necklace made from vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, vintage crystals and faux pearls, hanging from organza ribbon.
As I started running out of buttons, I turned to my dear friend, Mr. e-Bay. Comfort me Mr. e-Bay. Let me know there is more junk out there for me.
And as usual, Mr. e-Bay was happy to satisfy my needs. Ahhh, if only the rest of my life were this simple.
First I have to sort my buttons by color.
Beautiful shades of blue. Something really beachy is gonna come out of this pile, huh!
Holy mother-of-pearl! These could adorn a bride's wrist as she walks down the aisle.
Pretty in pink!
Happy National Button Day, friends! Time to get my craft on!
I'm sharing my button obsession with these beautiful blogs!
