buttons buttons buttons




I can't remember the last time I made something that didn't have a button on it somewhere! I made these canvases for August birthdays. The baby is my sister Susie, the other one is for my friend Cathy- this was a picture from a girl scout trip she took in the early 70's (and she's still friends with all of those girls!) I love the look of the metal handles & hardware on the canvas. (thanks Red Lead for the idea!)
Then, while I was digging through my button jars for just the right mix of buttons for the canvases, I decided to use some brown ones to make a set of inchies for a monthly inchie swap with the Hannah Gray Yahoo Group. Just lovin' the buttons!

Love the look of these frames. The little handles are the perfect touch and who doesn't love a bunch of buttons!!

By the way - what exactly are "inchies"?

: )

Cute. And the little inches, in all the earthy browns, remind me of shells or maybe rocks. Very soothing. Glad you put up a new post!
