buttons

Isn't it fun to take simple things - like buttons


and make them into something cool?

I went through my jar of white buttons, glued them to a plain white frame and popped in a picture from our girlfriends weekend. (sorry about the terrible reflection!)

This is 'the other' morning glory vine - the one that hasn't bloomed. It keeps getting bigger - and attacking the plant beside it - but no blooms.

I'm trying to get started on a project - if I do, I will be without my computer for a few days so if you don't hear from me, I'm probably covered in paint!

Have a great weekend.

Funny you should post about buttons today. I just posted an hour ago my first time on Button Floozies, which I recently joined. Believe it is http://buttonfloozies.blogspot.com.Haven't figured out how to link it to my blog yet, but I will. I love, love buttons! I put them on a frame once and many fell off. Someone told me you have to use a special glue... Have you checked out Button Floozies?

Ohhhh Tina, I just LOVE your button covered photo frame. Such a awesome idea and one that I may just need to "borrow" from you. I have a container of my mother's button's that I wasn't quite sure what to do with, but now I do. Thank you for sharing this.

The button frame is "cute as a button"...ok sorry couldn't resist. Your morning glory looks like my grape tomato plant...I had to cut it back today, it was so out of control.

What a neat idea using the buttons. Love to play with buttons. Have quite a collection that I got after my mother passed away. No one else wanted them. I just love to look at them.
