Button Wednesday : New "Old" Acquisitions



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.


When we went to the GP last week, I discovered a new junk shop in his street, so I went immediately in and searched for buttons.... Found some lovely ones; dark glass with painted flowers, greenish glass flowers, clear glass flowers, a large mother of pearl one, a lovely green plastic one with long oval holes, old tarnished metal edelweiss ones, fake wood ones with metal edelweiss on it, a lovely wobbely old fashioned one, etc. So happy with my new finds !
I took the pictures above on the balcony just now and it was very very windy; one of the more airborne ones flew away in the brand-new gutter.... Hubby will recover that one when it does not storm anymore :)))



!!!!!!!!!! If you have something for The Button Wednesday, give Mister Linky your name and the link to your button post !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh hey, I just made a small thing with a button today. Too bad I didn't take a picture before sending it away. I need to do that next time so I can play along.
