This blog was also one of the sponsors for the event, too; each of the participants received a bag of buttons and an invitation to join us over here!
Birdsong Two took place in Kansas -- and Kansas has some great antique shopping! Here are a few of the pretty buttons I brought home:
Look at those mother of pearl cufflinks in the upper left of the photo! The tiny, boat shaped buttons are dark green and red; they are a very old synthetic polymer -- maybe even Bakelite (that's what the antique dealer said, but I haven't tested them.)
I couldn't leave behind these two cards of blue buttons -- musty and dilapidated though they were! Such pretty blues!
And these beauties were a gift to me from Beth! It's so great to have friends who "get" you!
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie email@example.com
