Button It!!




I recently became the proud owner of 2 darling
pillows...just dripping with mother-of-pearl buttons!






one star....




one heart.....



covered in about 1 million buttons...
sewn on...not glued!
Whaaaat patience!






I found them through an Etsy shop called
LAZY PEAS
no relation or affiliation, just one seriously detail
oriented perfectionist!



Gorgeous carved buttons...from the
teenie tiniest...




to this monster giant!

The workmanship is awesome, I do believe
these are heirlooms in the making!

Be sure to visit our hostess, Kelli over at
THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME
for more SHOW & TELL FRIDAY!

    How very beautiful with all the buttons. I'm working on a project with buttons myself. Fun, but they get to weigh a TON when you get a lot on haha!
