Button Fun! UPDATED!!

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a button floozy! I just love them and can not pass up a jar!
I discovered the button fun on Kathy's Blog and just had to join Sugar Sugar's Button challenge, even though I am a day late.. (ha! my husband is going to lol when he sees this as I am always late for everything!)

If you browse my blog, you'll find buttons all over the place, so I thought I'd share my most recent acquisition. This metal tin, when you first glance in it, appears to be filled with junk, but not to me!! Look at the lovelies that were buried inside! Glass, shell, metal, vegetable ivory..





My favorite is the one with the black velvet flowers and leaf.. how do they do that?? Alas, there was just the one. Now I have something else to hunt for!


For more button fun follow the above links or you can peek at Button Constructions, a wonderful Etsy shop filled with button love!


(my next post will be in response to the wonderful comments and emails I received this weekend! Thank you so much for all the supportive words, they made me cry!)

I'm incredibly jealous. How cute!

You've collected some gorgeous buttons, Abbie! I love buttons too and must get my collection organized ... someday. :)

Good luck with your search for balance ... listen to your heart and do what you feel you have to. Don't listen to others or what you might think you should do. You'll know what's right. (I used to have a friend tell me this all the time when I asked for advice and it infuriated me at the time! Now that I'm older and wiser she gave me the best advice of any.)

xo,
Lynda

ps ~ I've had trouble visiting your blog ... whenever I get here my computer would crash ... not sure why but today it let me read you. :)
