a vintage button CALENDAR

Remember I’ve been clearing house lately?

aahhhhh 

I’ve been doing a pretty good job!!…
(patting myself on the back)

A big piece of that clearing process is

finishing projects

that have been umm…languishing
(or those being stored for future completion)

I’ve been ripping through them
and it feels…soooooo good!!
----------------------

One of my recent project involved buttons

lots and lots of buttons

I have a huge collection of vintage buttons

(many sweetly passed down from my mom & grandma)

buttons galore northern cottage

I combed through them and selected out some of the creams and whites

ahhh vintage buttons northern cottage

I decided to use some of them on a plain old magnet dry erase bulletin board

button edge northern cottage

adding them around the trim gives such a nice
softness to the piece…

that fits in so much better around a
cottage farmhouse

  5. Great idea because buttons abound at my house too. The whites and creams and the opalescents lend the feeling of shells to me. Soft and sweet for sure. I'm now following by email. Hope you'll stop over to Quirky Vistas for a visit and follow as well if you like.
