My Fall in Love with Buttons 2012 Swap tin - sent and received

My partner, Tamra, and I have sent and received our tins in the Fall in Love with Buttons 2012 Swap!  Here's the one she made for me:
 
Isn't it lovely?  She decoupaged it in Fall shades of green and brown -- and just LOOK at the gorgeous selection of buttons she sent!
Here's a peek at the inside
and the bottom; she used buttons for feet!  Tamra also gifted me that hand made barrette made of buttons!  How sweet is that?  I don't have any button barrettes, so it is really special!
Here's the tin I made for Tamra.  I used fall themed papers, ribbons, and a bit of lace.  She said she liked vintage, like me, so I decorated the top with lace, vintage millinery flower pieces, and a very pretty old button.
Here's how I did the inside: very simple with papers and felt leaves.  Sitting next to it is a card of vintage orange buttons I included, tied to a Fall-themed tag.
Here's the bottom of the box, and, on the right, the front of that tag.
Here's a photo of the buttons I included in her Fall mix.
This was SUCH a fun swap!

These are beautiful. This is a great way to see different buttons and learn what to look for when shopping to add to my collection.

Hi
Thanks for visiting my blog.
You can never have enough cats in my estimation, I would have loads more if I could afford it. I suppose like you I could say that I have 7 as I feed the stray Daddy (father of my 4 calicos) and the cat along the road comes in regularly for his saucer full. lol

Love what you do with buttons, I have quite a few buttons but somehow can't bear to use them as once used I haven't got them any more, Know what I mean?????

I know, I'm odd, but who cares. lol
