Buttons : spring swap wreath




The European Street Team organized a secret spring swap last month and I received my present last week; it's a gorgeous button wreath made by the talented florist Vaida from Lithuania. Have a look at her lovely creations in her Etsy shop kaleda. She has a great blog too. Vaida made me something really special, and she also wrote that if I wanted the buttons after a while I could easily take them off because they are not glued ! So thoughtful, don't you think ?

I decided to hang the wreath at the left door of my atelier / workspace which is mostly closed; the right door is mostly open in summer; so all tourists coming to visit see the wreath immediately !

It was difficult to take pics because of the refection of the glass door, but I hope you can see how lovely the wreath is. And finally a very strange picture from this morning when the sun came through; I like it somehow ....

The wreath is lovely: would be a pity to detach the buttons! Although it is a lovely, generous thought from the giver. I like the spirit! I think you found a lovely spot to hang it.
