Time for the Button Swap Blog Hop!!!

Hello Everyone
 Welcome To The Button Swap
Blog Hop
 Happy Mothers Day To All The Ladies 

Well here we go...
My terrific button partner is Melissa Martin of Kensington Cottage Blog
I was sent a bunch of beauties and here they are 

I started with the larger metal button.  It was mirrored in the inside back just gorgeous and a perfect fit for what I was needing to finish a pendant that I made in a class taken from 
Riki Schumacher.

This is what I had after the class

And this is now

My next button choice was to use the pair of flower buttons.  I just love these buttons.   I had seen a post that Melissa made with these buttons, she had just found them along with some others and I was drooling over them then, to my delight they were sent in my swap. 

And here is what I made with them and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how they turned out. 

Many thanks to Cindy for organizing this GREAT HOP!!! and my partner Melissa thank you for sharing your stash...

Now have a GREAT time visiting the rest of these button hoarders...
I mean swappers :)

Sneak Peek of my Buttons

These are the fantastic buttons I was sent by my partner for the Button Swap Blog Hop, Melissa Martin of Kensington Cottage blog, which you have to check out!  Melissa really shares great posts.  She sent me a load of buttons, it's really hard to choose only four especially if you want to send any in pairs.

This button really brought memories of my Dad he was a Navy man and we spent many wonderful times out on our sail boat the Can Dew.  

And chickens love'em.  

I feel earrings...
