I was paired up with the sweet Miss Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio. She makes lovely ceramic components and writes a fun blog. She just seems like she would be a really fun person to be with. How lucky am I?
Today is a sneak peek of the buttons that I got from Miss Diana.
The package was so lovely. Two tins and a sweet circus card (did you know that my daughter is hooked on elephants?) They were stuffed full of great treasures!
Here are all the goodies that were contained within!
Some wood, some leather, some resin... look at the fun shape of that wooden barrel button!
<------------This wood button is crazy huge!
And there is a leather button in there with a leather loop for a shank. (Blogger is messin' with me. You get the idea, right?)
Diana also included some beautiful mother of pearl buttons. I love the glow and warmth of mother of pearl. It is so classic and goes with everything.
But I am most delighted with the beautiful ceramic buttons that Diana made just for me! Isn't she sweet?
Come back on Saturday to see what I created with some of these sweet treasures!
P.S. It is also my week for the Studio Saturday on Art Bead Scene!
There will be a giveaway so do come over and check it out!
Your turn... do you collect buttons? What is your favorite? Do you ever use them for crafts, decorating, jewelry, counting, sorting, currency? Do tell!
