So, I took a piece of scrapbooking paper (before I had a collection of nice old wallpaper), some trim and Martha Stewart glitter letters - and I glued until I got this result. So, a happy home for my crafting buttons.
This image is of a grouping of porcelain, hatpins and knick knacks that are in my guest room. The kitty-cat statue is the item I bought at an antique show that inspired me to begin selling antiques. The lady that sold me the cat told me I would never be sorry in the decision to sell antiques. And, I wasn't, until the bottom dropped out of the antique market! LOL! LOL! LOL!
These sweet gold buttons are ones I cherish. Madai Rodgers of Forget Me Nots from Wren Cottage sent them to me in a swap. Love them, Madai. I love how the different hues blend so nicely together. And isn't it sweet that they were wrapped up in such a textured cloth?
Heather, my daughter from Pretty Petals had been looking out for strawberries for me, when I had started a collection. Here are a few from that collection. Grab them up! The vintage ones are so hard to find. There are some very nice new ones out there that ladies have been making, as well.
These buttons are from an excursion Heather and I took up to northern Pennsylvania, headed to a show that did not happen. But, the day was not lost as we discovered all these lovely buttons. It is a "rich day" when you can turn disappointment into delight!
I absolutely A-D-O-R-E this cupid pin! What sweet friends, eh? And the little mesh purse is on a very long chain, so I am assuming it was worn about the neck? And who can resist cameos?
Just a quick note about my Etsy shop. I have printed some small Marie Antoinette picture packs on high-end, soft-gloss printer cardstock. These are great for paper crafts of all sorts. They are definitely priced right. Should you want larger sizes, just send me an email, and I'd be glad to oblige.....
Have a wonderful Spring Day ladies, and for my dear friends in the southern hemisphere - have a beautiful Fall Day!
