button mania and feeling a bit like Frankenstein

A button broach I made. I love buttons!!

I button mosaic picture frame I’ve made for my Mom for Christmas.

This is my second button bouquet. I really enjoy making them. This one is for my Mom for Christmas. Only for my Mom would I pull out this many cool buttons that I like...The previous bouquet had more flexible stems and I wrapped the stems in florist tape. However, this time I liked the way the stems looked plain. This time I twisted the wire more to create a more rigid stem. I like the stems both ways – the look is just different.

I finally tried my hand at an art doll and now I feel like Frankenstein – I am not sure I like her. Unlike Frankenstein, I don’t detest her. She just isn’t what I envisioned so I am having a hard time responding to her. Sometimes I like her and sometimes I don’t. Poor thin – it isn’t her fault she was created.

    Oh! I LOVE the button bouquet!!

    I've seen these before, but yours is 'top drawer'! (hmm, i'm a poet, it seems)

    And I like your art doll. She has a certain charm.

  2. Oh I love everything. Your art doll is adorable. I really like her. The button art is awesome. You've been busy busy.

  3. I love it all too :) You must have an amazing button collection. I just started hunting them down a couple months ago and it's been slow going.

  4. I love the button bouquet too! It's so delicate and sweet. I long for a button collection. I'll never forget my grandmother's button jar. Hours of fascination.
