  2. I have been a fan of Bakelite and Lucite and other plastics for many years, unfortunately back in the day I sold all of my lovely Bakelite jewelry and Lucite purses for a song. Sigh. We have a mutual button love, I have bins and bins of them. I stalk button sales on eBay! One of these days you should visit and we can have a bead and button swap!

    Cheers,

  3. Earlier today I blogged about my new button bunch. A new passion for me with buttons. I love the way you use them. It is very inspiring. Those flower ones in your necklace are really cute.

    I believe you will see things you would like in the photo on my blog. And if you come and visit me IRL I'll take you to this paradise shop here in Stockholm dedicated to buttons and ribbons.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
