Red Button Beauties!

I have a lovely friend who loves buying things for me, and I love making things for her.
Today I received another little goodies packet from her ...

These gorgeous RED buttons!! I love the colour and the different textures and materials - some are Bakelite and some are wood. They are on an old button card that says 'Fashion's Latest' and 'Made in Czechoslovakia', but I doubt any of them are the original ones that came with the card. They were found in one of the lovely vintage-selling shops in Eumundi on the Sunshine Coast (mental note: grab some pocket money and take a drive up to Eumundi soon!!).

I'm a lucky girl! I'm thinking of making maybe a bracelet out of the 6 flower-y ones. Hmmmm...
I told her, the next time she's out shopping, I'd like her to buy me some extra time so I can make things to my hearts content!! hee hee.
Thanks Kira :D

How lucky you are to have a friend who loves buying things for you! Those red buttons are really sweet. As a kid I had a terrible habit of eating buttons. Red ones I was particularly fond of. Now looking at these buttons I'm beginning to feel a little bit hungry...

A bracelet is a cool idea! Be quick about it! Before I eat 'em :D

Ali, I love the colour red also and these buttons, I agree, are gorgeous! The bracelet is a fantastic idea for the flowery ones. And if you decide to make it, please post it, I'd love to see it! :D
