Button Beauty and Artistry

Make sure you're sitting down before you click over to this gorgeous piece of button decor by Connie at She Dreams Big.  I'm linking with permission, and here's a sneak peek:

Gorgeous.  Absolutely button-licious.  What have you been creating with buttons lately?

I love the white buttons. I am a firm believer that nearly every project needs some beautiful buttons. Right now I'm working on a stamp project that I'm framing. The frame will have a few buttons on it as part of the embellishments.

I love that lamp shade made out of buttons. Wish I had the patience to do that since I have a suitcase full of buttons

She must paint her base white? I left her a comment.

I follow your blog because I love old buttons among everything else in the world old

This is such a beautiful blog!...Connie's lampshade is so pretty, and what a clever idea too! I never would have thought to do something like that with buttons. I just love it!!! Paulette :D

I gave all my buttons away, so I have nothing to create. But I assure you this lady has plenty of great ideas.

How wonderful is that? I tend to create with flowers, dishes and food...my strength isn't in arts and crafts. I am however really interested in what others can do. I've never seen anything like this before!

Thanks for your recent visit. It is so hard to watch what happens to our parents. I lost my mom very quickly last spring...it still shocks me that she is gone. Now with the in-laws both failing quickly it feels as if we are on a roller coaster. I am sure your life has ups and downs with a parent living with you.

I'm delighted to see you drop in at LAWN TEA!!! And I DID almost burn down the kitchen of our first apartment, by making a pot of tea on the unaccustomed electric stove, setting the kettle back on another burner, and moving a pretty plastic bowl to the still-hot one.

Suddenly it went WHOOOOOSH, and the damage I did with that powder fire extinguisher is probably still being found behind baseboards and in cabinets.

I'm going to go get a link to my friend Jeanne's button posts---her aunt, an antiques dealer, has thousands, mostly made into panels and art and pictures---exquisitely beautiful creations---all of buttons.

Thank you for joining us!

If you're interested in the link to Jeanne's (Backyard Neighbor) link to her Aunt's great collection of buttons (you may already know her, since I imagine that button afficionados and quilters are much alike in their online links, whilst I am neither, except to look on and admire), it's here:

The shapes and the arrangements are just breathtaking, and I so wonder how does one person come to have such an array to work with, let alone do such amazing art with them.
