I’ve always called them pins. But what I’ve seen is that most label ’em buttons. In any event, I’ve been kinda like into them lately. And I don’t know why. I don’t wear ’em. I’m just pretty much collecting them. Not sure what I’ll do with them either. But they’re fun and cute. And if I’m going to collect anything, at least it’s something dirt cheap!
Indeed I’ve gone so far as to join thimble’s button-of-the-month club. I’ve gotten 2 months so far:
I got these on Etsy, my home away from home. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. Little birdies!!
They’re from sassyartgoddess and are even sweeter in real life.
Not long after I received them, I got an email from her asking me if I’d do a trade. She made some new birdie buttons and thought I might be interested. Yes! One pair of my cherries earrings for these lovelies:
Lastly, Emmaleigh from emmcreations, another friend I met on craftgrrl had me ship her something from one of my favorite online shops, j. caroline. Apparently j. caroline, for as awesome as they be, does not ship to our friends up north. So I helped her out with the transaction and as a thank you, she sent me these buttons made from scrapbooking paper.
I like these ’cause they’re a little bigger than the standard 1 inch buttons.
