Buttons & Candy!

Buttons
This was what I played with one night last week.
Is it weird that I play with buttons?

nevermind, don't answer that!

My great great "prend" Judy delivered me an extra fun bag last week from her Mom June,
You might remember June from our Mother-Daughter Christmas get together.

Anyway, June knows I love to craft and she had told me that she had a bunch of buttons she was going to send me. You know those little baggies and packages of extra buttons that come with garments? Yes, those are the buttons she sent me. And you can tell from this photos that June is one snappy dresser...so you know those buttons are fabulous!

So I spent that night last week opening up those little baggies and packages and looking at and fondling all my new little button treasures!

June also sent me a huge bag of broken and old jewelry!
I have not played with that much yet, but trust me I will be playing soon!

Is it weird to play with jewe .....um, never mind!

One of those cute buttons has already shown up on a piece of my Crochet Candy.

Can you spy it?
It's that cool beaded one.

Speaking of Crochet Candy...that name just kind of popped in my head to call these.
I thought it was clever!

Anyway I cannot keep up with production at this point, but if you are interested I'm selling them for five bucks, seven for the cotton ones. These have pin backs but I had thought about the possibility of barrettes for little girls (or little girls at heart!) :)
