Fun at Glitterfest!

A couple of weekends ago, my friend Robin and I did an event called Glitterfest here in Southern Calif. (Santa Ana) It was wonderful! There were many well known artists vending and shopping and everyone had a great time....
I had several different items to sell but wanted to show you a couple that included buttons.
My biggest seller were my banners...these are collaged with lots of fun goodies...buttons included! I accidentally posted my pics out of order and for some reason blogger wont let me fix it tonite you will see a close up of one of the buttoned penants soon!

Here is my banner display:
And on the tiered plate display I made lavender sachets that were made with squares cut from sweaters and a button in the middle!

Here is one of the penants with a button......

Then of course I had to stop this shopper and get a picture of her button bracelet.just for you!..she makes them with buttons and safety pins:


All in all, it was a really fun event, lots of inspiration and I just wanted to share!
Hope you are having a spookily wonderful week! karen.....

Thank you so very much for your sweet comment on my recent post. I wanted you to know that I love the name of your blog. It makes me smile each time I come over to see you. I love the buttons that my Momma collected (I now have) and loose all sense of time when I go rooting around for a particular button.
Thank you again for being so sweet to leave a comment,
Sharon

I too wish I could have been able to attend this quaint art affair...your works look great and your display was very inviting. I thought for many years I was the only compulsive button collector but now I know I am in good company. Sometimes I have difficulty making the decision which button I am willing to use and part with...do you ever find yourself in this guilty predicament?

;) I always have a problem of what buttons to save and what ones to use.
I started a long ago tradition (my "baby" is 28) of sewing special buttons on the inside of my sons' coats. Sometimes it was a heart, later it would be a pewter wolf or Piglet....
