old buttons

I have a great old mason jar from my grandmother full of old buttons. My daughter and I had a fun time photographing them on my dining room table...the photos turned out so well that I had to try a painting of them. What fun painting old buttons! Somedays I wish for simpler times when moms had enough time to save old buttons and reuse them...


  1. Wonderful idea, and great buttons. Love the painting.

    1. Thanks so much Susan! It was a fun one! Your paintings are beautiful!

  2. This is fun! I love buttons and beads! What a great idea. Nice job

  3. This is a good one Kim! They are a great subject and painted well! My daughter makes jewellery and has a collection called "Granny's Button Box" all made from buttons from her late Granny's button box.
