Using old buttons!

I just love using old buttons in my work! It makes each piece totally unique, with character and texture. Finding the perfect color and size to use on my ACEO/ATC cards and Valentines is always a fun "hunt". I have several of these on Ebay this week. Nancy Malay

Yeah for old buttons! I love the little plastic blue one on my pincushion from you! We do have similar memories. Maybe instead of my search for the All American Family, I should have been looking for military families to not feel that my life was so different from everyone elses! Our apartment had marble floors, imagine! Love my overseas memories too! E

Thank you so much!

We have a wonderful antique store here, and it's so fun to spend time there scouring their shop. I can create a entire piece around one little button!
