Button Love!

I love buttons!
This collection is only the tip
of the iceberg in my studio.
I have buttons stashed everywhere!
I don't know what I love better,
the look of a million buttons in a jar,
or actually using them in a project!

I found this cute little lamp at a thrift store recently,
it was an ugly brass (sorry if you like brass...),
 I took it apart, sprayed it white, of course!
And then filled the base with buttons.
I covered the shade with some vintage
lace and now it sits
so cute on my desk in my studio.
This was a Pinterest - inspired idea.
Of course mine turned out cuter!
Of course! haha!
I dug through my shell shaped buttons
and made this sweet pillow.
The trick is to trace a heart
with a water soluable marker,
glue the buttons in place,
and then sew them on.

I'm going to head over to Faded Charm's
White Wednesday
to see what everyone is up to today!

Hi, I found you via your Etsy shop. Love your blog and your shop! I am also a new member of the CAST team; also, sort of, your neighbor. I live across the river from Lake Oswego in the Milwaukie/Gladstone area.

Hoping you do more posts soon.

I’ll be teaching a creative writing class this summer to a group of 11-14 year-olds. I have experience teaching writing (mostly poetry) to adults, but teaching kids will be new territory. Does anyone have some great tips, websites, resources for exercises, and reading materials for this age group? Thanks!.
