It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.
I am known in the neighbourhood as "die Knopffrau" (i.e. "The Button Lady"); no idea if this is bad or good.... But on some days, ladies that are unknown to me, ring my bell and bring me their buttons. Often with a story that they have gathered them for many years, and now it's lying there and they do nothing with it. Ending mostly with: I am so happy if you could do something useful with them !
Today the bell ringed again; and yes, there was another sweet lady with 2 plastic bags of buttons. I am always thrilled if I get buttons; so, I immediately went through them and found some lovely German metal buttons. The nice thing of living in Germany, are the lovely metal buttons women here always used on their folk dresses. And I found some masterpieces ! A bit damaged here and there, and a bit dirty; but the fun is great !! I found a deer, a woman in Bavarian headdress, edelweiss, and much more; have a look at these beauties:
!!!!!!!!!! If you have something for The Button Wednesday, give Mister Linky your name and the link to your button post !!!!!!!!!!!!!
