Vintage Button Swap & WIP

My vintage button swap package from Melissa~all buttoned up~arrived today...

Inside, cards of vintage buttons were paired with these lovely fabrics...also a great Amy Karol card...

Aren't these buttons wonderful? and what clever packaging!

Thanks Melissa!!!

This is todays work in progress ~ two lampshades I'm covering with this floral fabric. I still need some kind of trim for them also...

they're headed to the kid's bathroom to be used on the vintage sconces we put up recently...

Have a great weekend everyone. We are headed to Stephanie's horse show tomorrow and maybe the Renaissance Fair on Sunday.

    Hope you have a great weekend too Debbie!
