Buttons & Blue {and a Cheerio, too}


Lookie here! Lovely old buttons.
I've held onto them for about a year, contemplating all the wonderful possibilities.


And for about six months I've had two blank canvases hanging on my wall; the anticipation is at least half the fun of the project!

What to do? What to do?


I got this far and let it sit a few weeks...


...and then worked on it a bit more as I found time...


...and it was so much FUN. Why don't I mess with paint more often?


Time for buttons...



...and more buttons...


 ...and I have buttons left over - maybe I WILL make a border around the TV...(heheh, not)








Today was my birthday and I received some lovely artwork from a couple of cuties at church.


Once a year, whether I need it or not!


Cheerio! (Find one, leave a comment, and I just might send you some chocolate...)

WOW! How creative! Excellent job. Beautiful birches. And I loved the comment about the "bath". He-he!

...and did you see the CHEERIO??

No, I didn't notice the real cheerio because I thought you were referring to your comment at the end of the blog where you used the word Cheerio. But I just now went through your pics again and found it right away!
Sneaky!!
