You Are Cordially Invited......

To a Summer of Fae!

Please join me, starting 1 May through July to explore a summer of fae. I will create posts about fairies, pixies, elves, etc. There will be lots of fairy pictures, some fairy recipes, maybe a fairy craft idea or two, some fairy give-aways. Maybe we'll even explore the origins of the fae folk with some fae lore and stories. Please let me know if there is anything else fairy you'd like to explore and I'll try to do some research and see what I come up with!

So put on your best fairy dress and get ready for a Summer of Fae!

Buttons.....I gotta thing for buttons

I've always liked buttons but, until recently I haven't done anything about it. I saw some pics on Pinterest and got some ideas for button jewelry. I had some buttons at home but, I needed more. So, I took a trip to the local antique shop determined to find a jar of buttons. I couldn't believe I found I found a jar of buttons! Here are some projects that I've made so far:

A white button bracelet. I recently added a heart charm from a necklace that I didn't wear much anymore.

This is one of my favorites so far. Most of the plain buttons are from the jar I made and some are new from the fabric store.

I made these buttons from an old skirt.

More button fun to come! Stay tuned!
