Button Wednesday : Giant Buttons



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 in the comments.


This Button Wednesday is about Giant Buttons often found outside button shops. I love those button signs ! And I am still trying to convince my hubby that our house needs such a giant button sign too :) I am starting with the Knopenwinkel (i.e. button shop) in Amsterdam that I visited last year. The same shop has also gorgeous button door handles (photos by ninimakes on Flickr).


The second one is at a shop called Tender Buttons in New York (Photo by Jo from Button Candy).


The third one is this giant yellow button sign above a tailor shop in Brugge (photo by Susan from Button It Up).

I don't know anything about this button sign which I found on Flickr (photo by Christina Anthony). I love the bright red colour !


No idea what this building in Latvia is, a button shop or a button factory ? Or maybe a bike shop ??? (photo by Gunta on Flickr)


And a button shop in Croatia (photo by Emily Kubec on Picasa)


And a beautiful one in New Zealand (photo by rlsycle on Flickr)


Last but not least, Guinness World Records' largest button at a button museum in Germany.
