Button Wednesday : More Button Plates ....

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.

Last week's Button Wednesday continues, albeit a bit different .... I found also a lot of pictures of plates decorated with or around buttons, and this Button Wednesday will be around these wonderful finds. The plate above is from Lucy Oldfield on flickr; she made this button plate as the finial piece for a project called "over 65 Project" where the brief was to get to know an over 65 year old and to do a piece of work relating to them. I love how it turned out !

The next one is made by Heather on flickr; she makes lots of lovely plates, but this one seemed to be the most appropriate here and now.

The above plate is made by Chris Emmert who is a fantastic mosaic artist, also with a lovely shop on Etsy. It is called Moorish Tray and is made from recycled dinner plates, glass tiles, and an old coat button in the center.

This beautiful art piece is from Deborah Prince. She used some of her grandmothers' buttons on both sides of her family and her mom's old buttons, and filled in some blank spaces with a few store bought buttons. The frame is also vintage and so are the plates. She also used two vintage china lids. What can I say ? I think this is a real masterpiece !

And I am in love with this funny picture of Solveig on flickr :)))

And last but not least, this lovely button plate that you can make for yourself following this turorial from June Pfaff Daley. Isn't that a great idea ?

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