I went to the westerstraat markets last Monday and found all these lovely vintage buttons that for some reason, were calling out my name. I have been getting the craft bug back of late. I think it is the change in weather, autumn does that to you doesn’t it. I’m thinking these buttons would make great eyes for some little creatures, but what do you think, any crafty suggestions?

    You can make fun rings out of buttons too.

    I love vintage buttons (I actually just posted about my love for them the other day!) Those look beautiful. You could incorporate them into pieces of jewelry or sew them onto a pillow. I probably would end up just staring at them :)

    my immediate thought was a tiny stuffed fish shape, layering the buttons like scales.
    or for the spring, yes the spring, a natural linen pillow with nine or twelve of the aqua buttons arranged in a 3X3 or 4X4 grid to create tufting.
