Bonkers for Buttons...


I'll let the photographs tell the story...
These are the size of half dollars and larger...




They need to be cleaned...
That will wait for another day~


Because I'm finishing up on LOADS of
new sketches for my Etsy shop!

I'll post a few later today~

Hope you have a fantastic week!

Wow Michelle! I am so thrilled to see how many other people have come to love your work!! What a blessing for you!! You are such a joy!!

I've got a touch of woozy looking at your wonderful buttons!! I have a thing for vintage buttons...BIG TIME!! I got some as a little gift when I met some fellow bloggers over the weekend! What a grand time we had!!

Can't wait to see more of your drawings!! They just fill me with delight! I would purchase them all if I could! I haven't had but a few minutes to ponder what I might do with mine...I'll let you know as I decide!
Have a joyful week, my friend!!
HUGS,
Becky

Fabulous buttons!!! And to respond to your post on my blog...are you going to be featured on that new "hoarders" show? ;-) You're cute!

I'd love to have a baby robin sketch!
Please make sure you sell it to me! I will frame it! Actually, Michelle, I have some 5x7 little blackboards that it would look beautiful on - just like the way you photograph yours! So if he would be little enough to fit inside and still show a little of the blackboard, that would be terrific! At your leisure!

Robins have always been my favorite bird, from the time I was little, they were my favorites to draw too.

Hugs!
Diane

Hello Michelle,
Lovely daffodils
We always have daffodils with Easter .because It is an Easter gift in church, for every person 3 (15 for us)
Those button pictures are very beautiful. I once made a sepia ink drawing on A5 full with buttons.
Have a wonderful week, Suzanne

Ack! Love the buttons so much! When I lived back East I spent many a flea market visit combing the booths for old buttons. Those carved mother-of-pearl were always my favorite. I still have a couple of jars of them left over from those days.
