Cute as a button!

Analise is hosting a button challenge! What a fabulous idea! Who doesn't love buttons? I've loved buttons since I was little. My aunt used to give me cookie tins full of buttons that I would sew them onto fabric scraps and make little pillows. Then one day became a teenager and threw all of my buttons out (little did I know!). I could take pictures of these little cuties all day but I hand picked some of my favorites!
Pearl buttons are my all time fave! But, there are also bakelite and colorful buttons...

...pretty, pretty rhinestone and clear buttons...
...button cards...
...more pearl buttons in fun shapes...
...blue buttons...ooohhhh....
...and more pearl buttons....

That was fun! Can't wait to see everyone's buttons!

I just realized today that this is my 49th post! I think for my next post I will have a giveaway. Have few ideas for what it may be. I know it's not my 100th post but what the heck...stay tuned...

I love your collection of buttons, and most of all the glass buttons and the buttons on card.

Oh my goodness...I love your button collection. I was going to say the bakelite buttons are my favorite, but then I saw the rhinestone buttons and those clear blue ones and I decided I just love them all!
