Button Crazy

After having done a couple button hops I am obsessed with buttons. I love them.
Today hubby, daughter and I went to the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.
We had so much fun walking around, looking at yarn, seeing all the sheep, alpacas and lamas, eating great fair food and shopping. For buttons.
I wanted to share with you the buttons and lampwork spacers I bought from 4 lovely artists.

How awesome is this stash?! I love that copper color and the leaf shape.

-I grabbed these leaf beads the second I saw her booth. See that tin? It's all taped up. Yep, surprise buttons. I couldn't wait to get home and see them.

12 Buttons in that little tin!

My Favorite!
EDIT 5:45AM: I totally just realized that that last button shot is a totally cool Macro photo.

Oh, you totally scored on buttons!! I got some cool metal ones at Tuesday Morning last week. I'm with you, after doing the button challenges, I'm even more in love with them. The buttons in the tin are seriously cool. I love the leaf ones too, they remind me of some from an etsy seller. Check these out.

Ack! Shannon! What a great stash you were able to find :) I don't know how I can possibly choose which I like more!

What delightful creations!! I'm glad to see a macro image of something other than a flower, too....I NEED to find some good subjects like this!

Those buttons are fantastic! Lucky girl! I have a thing with buttons too, but don't use them and don't sew. Wish I did. I just look at the buttons, and hold the buttons, and ... well, never mind!

Annette said...

I have a thing for buttons and I love every single one of those! If I could, I would reach through my screen and take them, lol!!!
