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 :)

  10. Oh, oh, oh! That pendant and that lovely button work so beautifully together! What an amazing necklace. And those earrings are super sweet too :)

  11. Theresa I am so glad you loved the rose buttons! I debated back and forth if I should send them, they were the kind of button you either love or hate. I am so glad you love them! I thought they were so pretty, and your earings are amazing!! That necklace, wow! I love it, I would totally wear it! I loved the buttons you sent, they were all so different and pretty! I am working on incorporating several of them into a bracelet, I just need some more wire and time to finish it off!
