Pins and Planters

Some fun stuff on a stuffy Monday...

A gigantic button I made into a pin. You can find these goliaths in the purse making section of your local JoAnn's fabric stores.

A little brooch I made using buttons, linen, and wooden beads. Loosely inspired by bakelite beauties such as these:

A cute little lady vase I found while thrifting. Isn't she sweet? Here she is hanging out with Blythe on my dresser...


  1. So weird! My mom JUST sent me a link to buy that same little face button! I loved the red one they had too

  2. I got the red ones, too! :D I hope the buttons will go on sale some time soon so I can buy a bunch more- they really have some cute ones!

  3. Very cute brooch you made! I like the big button too, but I doubt I could pull it off ;)

  4. Love that giant button! (Why, oh why, can't we have JoAnn stores up here north of the 49th, too?!) As well as the lady vase you found (awesome score), it looks as though your sweet Blythe really is trying to make heads or tails out of what to think of it though :)

    Big hugs & joyful Tuesday wishes,
