Buttons!

Another post today - oh wow! My mom just gave me these buttons! I had mentioned to someone before that I knew my grandmother had bunches of buttons, but didn't know where they ended up. My mom found some of them. I made her a bracelet with a scottie dog button from Fusion Beads, (because Scottie Dogs are her favorite things!) and she said she had some more scottie dog buttons somewhere. Here they are! The scottie dogs are from Maine, the hearts are Japanese buttons, and the union jacks are actually from the UK, because they are marked 20 p (which means 20p, or 20 pence to us). You may have to click the photo to see the detail in the scottie dog buttons - they are kind of light.

Those buttons are cute...The dogs almost look like Cairn Terriers (Toto from Wizard of Oz). But, very cool!
