Decided to share the luscious array of buttons on a couple of shelves from friend Karen’s Craft Room. They do show how focus can alter a piccie – either stretching out in a row of buttons in jars (above), or focusing on 1 specific button in a jar (below).
My favourite button is the large square yellow 2-hole, in the foreground of the above close-up. The details of the rows of buttons are more generalized, but do show a little the extent of her collection. And you thought I was obsessed!
