Buttons


Up at Stitches West a few weeks ago, I indulged in some button buying.
I am not sure what I will use these little rooster buttons for. But I just had to get them.
They are so cute.
Don't you think they would be adorable paired with a little red toddler sweater?
Hmmm... the design wheels are turning..


Also, I brought my long lost Sienna Cardigan along for some button matching.


I came across these buttons almost immediately and they fit great.
Ok. Now I have no excuse. I really need to finish this project up!



Its amazing what the right button can do for a finished piece.

I use to have a little bit of a button addiction, but I'm getting better about it now. (C: I love the buttons you got! I love the rooster ones to, I think the wood texture is so nice!

Oh, those chickens are too precious. Now I know where the phrase "cute as a button" originated!

Even though the gender's wrong, those rooster buttons make me think of Henny Penny.

The rooster buttons are so sweet! They would look great on a toddler sweater. I really covet the green buttons though. They're gorgeous.

These are fantastic and so perfect!

I just spent a fortune on a couple buttons two days ago... but, at least for me, it is so hard to find fun buttons!
I will have to take some photos asap.
