Button-tastic + Winner

Anyone who knows me well, know I am slightly crazy when it comes to buttons. I can’t help it but I love everything about buttons. Perhaps it is because some of my early childhood memories involve me sitting on the floor sorting my Mum’s big tin of buttons whilst she sewed. 

I have made up some button hearts for Christmas. I just need to add a hanging loop. 

I think I may attach names to them and use them as place cards for Christmas dinner. The guests can then take them home to add some buttony goodness to their Christmas decorating.

In other news, Sarah used the Random Number Generator to draw our winner in the Lighting Giveaway. We are pleased to announce that Susan from Stitch Scrap Sew is the winner. Susan Buyster Lighting will be sending you the voucher so you can make your selection.

    Buttons are very tactile and delightful …. but why is it, that when you need one or two for a garment – you go to that big big stash – and there isn’t ONE that’s suitable??? So, off you go to buy more! That’s what I’m doing first thing today!

    These are really cute for ornaments AND place cards. Great idea. I love the heart buttons you mixed in there. I love making ornaments!

    Congrats to your winner!

    I certainly understand your love for buttons! Darling hearts. When my son was much younger he’d dump out my crustal cookie jar filled with buttons and sort and play on my sewing room floor. I miss that. He’s 21 now.

    Congratulations to the winner and yes, I remember sitting on the floor with my mother’s tin with buttons. She still has it and thinks I should have it. With buttons over 50 years old!
    Love your button hearts!

    These are wonderful. I too used to play with my mothers button tin. All the shapes and colors just fascinated me. I think I will have to go and look through my own button tin now!

    Oh, how we fingered & played our way thru Mother’ button boxes … & now I have the kid-lings doing the same. It is amazing the wonderful designs/art they create.

    Your creations are absolutely darling, I love the heart buttons.

    Have a lovely day. TTFN ~Marydon

    I love buttons too! In fact, I did a blog “Button, Button Who Has the Button.” Lots of fun. I love you little hearts with buttons. Very cleaver!
