Painting Plastic Flower Pots. Cap Sleeve Floral Dress. What Flowers Are In Season In Spring
Painting Plastic Flower Pots
A Bit of Spring as Winter Descends
I was inspired by all the artists who make flower bouquets out of their vintage buttons. I made flowers and put them in a painted clay pot.
I could not bring myself to use my vintage buttons. My sister, Kate, bought me these really neat flower shaped buttons to layer.
I have no idea why I am saving all my vintage buttons. I have so many. I don’t sew so they will never grace a design or creation of mine. They are not displayed. I have no room to display all of them. They are separated by kind and then color. HO-HUM!
But, you know, I feel, they hold in them the energy of my great great Grandmother, my great Grandmother, my Grandmother, my Mother, my great Aunts, aunts, and sister. They made some of them, chose some, used them, and saved them.
They were passed down to me. Plus, when I see what vintage buttons go for, well, my heart flips.
I have some from the 1800’s and WW2. My great Uncle fought the Nazi wearing these buttons on his shirt and jacket sleeves. How could I let ALL those goes for a lot of $3.00?
