I do believe the Universe is conspiring against me - truly I do! After some serious reflection and a moment of gay abandon I was prepared to quash my button buying ways. I was planning to be a reformed button glutton but the Universe intervened and kept on throwing luscious little bundles of buttons in my path this week and what can I say? I succumbed to the temptation. Again.
At least I have turned them into something wearable rather than just sorting them into little piles and gazing at them lovingly. Here is what some of them have become this afternoon ...
A mix of lovely vintage buttons and some not-so-vintage-but-still-pre-loved buttons!
My heart craves the multi-coloured necklaces but every now and then I try to make a more or less monochromatic one.
These beautiful muted tones have great vintage appeal I think.
Ah - the little red swallow - truly the most perfect button ever found by me!
'Tis luverly innit?
Delightful little stacks of button goodness.
This one includes a really big button that I decoupaged ages ago with some hand-stamped Japanese paper and some contemporary patterned wood buttons. I feel a little more justified with regard to my button-buying-ways now that I have actually created something with them and just had to share some of my button "rehab" with you. To see what all the cool kids are doing in the thrift stores this week, head over to Sophie's.
