If you recall last weekend I went to an auction looking for vintage buttons and came home with a teak patio furniture set. This weekend I went to another auction and I am pleased to say I stayed focused and did score some buttons that were oldies but goodies. As a result of my good behavior I did not have to call in extra heavy duty equipment to haul anything home ( making some brownie points with the hubby.) I also bought a few vintage hats that were fun. Most importantly, I had some fun with a friend. We were supposed to head over east to get some food for her horses and stop at some fun thrift stores but the weather was bad so we just stayed local. Next weekend I have one more sale I would like to scout out for more buttons. It will be interesting to see if I can behave myself again.
I have done two" crafternoons" making button jewelry. One was at Thanksgiving with my family ( my sister-in-law declared it the best craft ever!). The second time was with my staff( 16 people) for our Christmas party. They made different kinds of jewelry such as rings, brooches, bracelets, hair clips etc. We used vintage earrings at that party as well.
