I hereby proclaim my button love ~

With it being International Button Week I thought it would be nice to finally introduce myself as a true button lover ~ just like you! My name is Dawn of The Feathered Nest and I have loved buttons for such a long time. When browsing antique stores or malls, I'm always drawn to bags, cards or jars filled with buttons ~ They truly are such wonderful little things.











These last two photos courtesy of Grandmother's Buttons ~ aren't these creations beautiful?






A little poem I wrote in honor of International Button Week ~


Where have you been little button?
Whose clothes did you adorn?
Have you traveled the world over?
How many years were you worn?

If only you could tell the tale
Of how you've come so far.
Through years of being sewn and stitched
and into my button jar.

~ DAWN EDMONSON ~


I'm so happy to be a part of Button Floozies....because I KNOW that you "get" me!!
xxoo, Dawn

Hi Dawn, I really think your blog is beautiful and I can really connect with the verse above your title on there. Beautiful buttons, it's great they are still on their vintage cards, too!
