I haven't posted anything for awhile. I have been rearranging and putting my buttons in jars. I had some old Mason Jars I found out in the barn. The old blue ones with the screw on lids. Brought them in the house and cleaned them up. Sorted my buttons by colors and put them in the Mason Jars.

The instructions stressed that it looked more complicated than it is and they were right. The instructions were very clear and the diagrams helped too. The clasp is very attractive..
as is the back of all of the buttons. Almost two buttons for the price of one.
Lots of fun to make.

This is my first proper post on Button Floozies so here goes.
I have recently taken part in a swap and this lovely bracelet was made for me as part of that swap by Maxine at Tiny White Daisies. Just my colours too.
I could see myself even adding to this bracelet if I found one for two special buttons to compliment Maxine's work.
You can see the other items on my blog. There are some other lovely button too but I need to take close up pictures of those first.

Vintage apothecary jars bought at a thrift shop several weeks apart. I tell you I was stunned to find the second one. They are not common around here.
Here is something I create using my buttons.
I call them button pots. They are really small about 2.5 inches tall with a little pincushion on top.
Don't those red buttons just look so luscious?

I wanted to show you a few buttons I picked up at an Estate sale over the weekend. I was so excited to find these stashed inside a vintage sewing box.
There was a little jar of small white and clear buttons....I think they are so romantic looking.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day and I hope you have lots of love to come your way.
I am excited to be here~

Hello, my name is Wanda ( aka needlewings) and I live in S.E. Ohio. I am also new to the Button Floozies. I shall share some of the buttons that I have used on a mixed media wall quilt. The base being of fabric and Peltex, while I also have used torn dyed paper toweling, angelina and added covered and vintage buttons, some iridescent tissue papers along with clay, paints and machine quilting. The medium size covered buttons were made by my mother-in- law years ago. Quite possibly the 50's or 60's. She has since passed away in the early 80's and I have inherited her collection of buttons. I have had so much fun sorting them into color families. When I came across these burgundy velvet covered buttons, I had wanted to use them somewhere, so the torn tissues and textures just sort of fell into place looking like button flowers. I adhered some fabric centers and paints and found other gold buttons that mimicked the polka dotted centers. This piece has been in local art galleries and now hangs on my wall in my studio. I believe you will find an older post of it on my blog. Thanks for allowing me to share my work and view so many other talented button addicts works:)

I love all buttons, new and vintage, and simply cannot resist a box/jar/parcel of them.I have no idea what I'm going to do with all these little treasures!Hopefully we can all help each other out by showing off what each of us has made, sharing any ideas, as well as the odd tutorial and pattern.Here's a few of my favourites (that I could find!)
