I don't know what this will end up as... I believe I've finished the embroidery, but I'm not sure and may come back with something later. I'm hoping for a visit from Mila soon! She will be starting kindergarten this year; I can hardly believe that she is 5 years old. What will we make while she is here?
As I continue to clean and organize...I realize how hard is for me to resist cute, pretty, or unusual buttons.
Oh, for another chance to play with my grandmother's button jar! There were certainly many childhood hours spent sorting buttons by size and color-- unaware of any treasures that I'd certainly look for today.
Loose buttons and buttons on cards still charm me, and I still pick them up at flea markets now and then.
The top two cards below (the yellow and the pink) are vintage buttons that Marie sent me a while back. They are awaiting a project with some vintage prints...probably little dresses for little girls. Truthfully though, it will be quite difficult to force myself to remove the buttons from the card. The tiny white ones I bought at flea markets. Here are various shell buttons I've picked up over the years.
The backs are pretty rough, but sometimes I like the backs even better for their homely touch. I turned a few over for comparison...
I'm working on at least one more post on buttons...I have by no means exhausted this subject!
