Fifty plus buttons later...

Simple and sweet little ruffled t-shirt found at the Loft

along with a camel colored cardigan,

and my vintage fabric covered button box full of gems

becomes my creative amusement

as I curl up into the cozy sofa and watch the latest Hallmark movie.

Fifty plus buttons later et Voila !

This may be called having your cake and eating it too.

It's so fun to find a new home for the tiny treasures,

where they are allowed to come out and be enjoyed by others.

Grateful to share it in Belle Armoire Magazine !


  1. love this and all your other button goodies
    you must have quite a stash

  2. I was just at the de Young museum last week in San Francisco and they had an artisans faire inside where I bought a lovely cuff link turned into a ring. Most of this artist's work was jewelry made with antique buttons and shirt studs and cuff links. She did beautiful work...I shall now be on the hunt for antique buttons!

  3. Love this! Freckled favorite tonight. Thank you for sharing!
