Button Swap Reveal!

Not long ago I signed up for Cindy Wimmer's Button Swap.  My sweet husband would like to personally thank Cindy for getting me hooked on vintage buttons, and dragging requesting his presence as  I went on my search through many antique stores looking for treasures!  I did happen upon a LARGE bag of buttons, and then as if guided by The Good Lord Himself, found a bag of antique mother of pearl buttons in his grandmother's sewing box...little sneaky compartment!!

We're off to Natural Bridge today to celebrate my birthday/Mother's Day, so I won't get a chance to hop til later this evening...

My partner is Teresa Gagne of Going to Pot! Teresa had a visit from good ol' Mr. Murphy and his laws...and received more than a headache when someone ran their car through her yard...causing ALOT of damage.  Hence, Teresa's buttons got delayed, but I received them this afternoon!!

So, unfortunately I haven't had a chance to create anything with these beauties yet!  I adore the colors though, and ideas are already coursing through my wee little brain!  There will definitely be a funky fabric cuff made with at least one of these!!

And being the scatterbrain that I am, I didn't photograph the buttons I sent typically me!  I made some resin buttons from antique photographs, some of the vintage mother of pearl buttons from Granny's hidden treasures, and a few buttons left over from a stash that Tari Sasser sent me during Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party

Please visit the participants....and I will post my reveal some time in the upcoming week!
