I meant to add a piece of my old lace around the head of the flower if you can imagine how that looks. Someone wanted me to make them some and add pink ribbon to theirs.
One thing have is lots of older vintage buttons. I have 2 gallon jars of dark buttons and I know soon as I decided to sell them in one of my yard sales a project will come up using black buttons so they just set on the sewing table. I would say I have at least 2 gallon of old vintage mother of pearl buttons and then my fabulous old rhinestone buttons that I get so exited about when I find them at estate sales I have them in glass candy jars in a couple rooms around the house.
well here is my button flowers and I may make corrections but you can see them before they are perfect. This is my dish pan of colored buttons all vintage you know. I did notice some girls are buying new buttons for theirs and I thought I am using my good old ones
My little vase of flowers in a cut glass salt shaker with a silver screw top. If you click on the picture and make it larger you can appreciate it more?
Getting my white and Ivory buttons together trying to decided which ones to use
While I was making these I made a pot of hot tea and used a little tea pot and cup made for one. This was a gift once. On my post about my tea pots and tea cups I didn't show this one because it was in a bedroom on a dresser just setting there looking pretty and I forgot about where it was. You know how it is when you quit looking for something you find it
Here is how they look open for you who haven't seen these hinged tea spoons before. I like using loose tea and that is why I collected them. I like using my treasures
I still want to make some more button flowers just out of wire now so will do more later
Before I go here is a bowl if you don't have one to mix up your pancakes, cakes etc you need to try it. It is a TEXAS Ware plastic bowl made in Dallas USA
Nothing sticks to them they are light weight and so easy to wash up.
I gave one to a friend and she is crazy about it and wants more, I only find them at antique stores. I don't see them to often however while at the Portland Expo there was a few $18 for the very small and up to $35. for the large ones. I bet ladies who live in larger cities could find them at Goodwill like they find pyrex.
Rachel Ray on the Food Network cooking show has some new bowls that on TV they look a lot like these vintage ones
