a little crafty

button book

happy labor [less] day..... if you are stateside, of course. we are having really nice weather here. it's a treat.

today shari is hosting the documentary project. the word this week was interior....

i have been drooling over my button book [above] from modern-craft . buttons - love. jewelry - love. button jewelry? what's not to love? so i made my own little button concoction.

button ring

i've actually got a pretty good stash of vintage and cool buttons [some from the lovely paula , who recently updated her shop ... i think there might be a few things left ??] i wish i had more time to play with all my buttons.... hopefully soon.....

aranzi machine gun

this cuteness also came in the mail recently. aranzi is just irresistible i think. i love how these little "zines" blend funny pics and projects.... more info on the machine gun series here [they are a CHEAP guilty pleasure].

i love collecting buttons. when i travel i love to visit a local flea market, thrift shop, crafts store, antique market, etc. i dream of having jars full arranged by color lining a shelf.
I adore buttons... What is it about buttons that we love so much? They are like little candies with character.... And the zines, swoon... xxo

Paula's buttons are indeed very, very gorgeous. I've got a thing for buttons too. I'm thinking of making a zine on them somehow.
