Surprise Find

I am down stairs trying to get my studio back straighten up like it was before I tried to clean out unwanted items and ran across a glass candy jars of some of my wonderful old buttons on a card. It was such a sweet surprise                                                                                             I thought I had all my card buttons in another cabinet Oh well I love a surprise,finding buttons that is. I know they are just little pearl buttons but they make my heart go pitter patter                              

It's a Small Button World

My husband and I spent a week in Amsterdam earlier this month, and I spotted this while we were on a canal boat tour: And closer up: I'd heard of the Knopenwinkel --the Button Shop-- but wasn't able to squeeze in a visit, so seeing it from the canal was a nice surprise.  I know another Button Floozy wrote about the shop several years ago, but I'd like to assure everyone that it's still around and that it's in a lovely area of the city. I posted the picture on the Facebook page for my book, The Button Collector .  I was happily surprised when Suzanne Goldsmith , a fellow author, sent me this picture of a button necklace her husband bought her at the very same shop: Once again, I'm convinced that it's a small button world!  

The Button As A Last Touch

I just finished this mixed media painting this morning. As a finishing touch, I went to my BUTTON COLLECTION. After trying at least twelve different buttons....I settled on the amber clear acrylic button. Buttons and Art go together perfectly!
