Button Bonus!

I had a chance to go to the Beach area of Toronto this afternoon -- it's a beautiful sunny day, the first "real" day of spring weather we've had..and I couldn't believe the number of people out without coats and young people in shorts!! I mean, it was only 52 degrees folks, and it's chilly with the wind from the lake!! But compared to what we've been having, it's practically tropical!!

Anyway, at my favourite scrapbooking store, I bought some beautiful papers and I found this box by Making Memories, called "5th Avenue Blossoms and Buttons" and I just ♥ the buttons -- the floral blossoms are fine, but it's the sizes, shapes and colours of the buttons I love...I can't wait to use these for something!!

Sorry the picture is a bit blurry (I was trying to eliminate the "shine") -- but you get the idea (and this is only some of the 100 buttons in the box!)

I like buttons and also old belt
buckles. I collect them when I find them. Buttons are truly the jewelry of clothing. My favs are
the shell MOP & abalone. And the
pierced MOP buttons! I hope you

where I am adding your linkie
on my sidebar! Jewelgirl
