Yesterday, my hubby blessed me with staying with the kids and I was able to go out early to Joann's to take advantage of their New Year sales. I had been given a gift card and wanted to use it on some fabric and notions for the baby. I will be sharing the fabrics I've picked for this wee ones little clothes soon, but...

I just had to share the buttons I found! Perhaps only those that love to sew obsessively will enjoy these, but then again...they are so cute!

All the buttons at Joann's were 50% off and I couldn't pass that up. Especially, since I will be making some little day gowns that will call for some buttons. Above was one of the first I found. Sweet little daisies that will go lovely with a soft yellow fabric I bought for a day gown:-)

Although the pic is not as clear, I thought these blue flower buttons were sweet and will also complement a lovely blue flower sprayed fabric I have. I'm not sure which one I will actually use yet...but I think the dark blue may be best. Perhaps you will help me decide when you see the fabric:-)

Now for the most adorable buttons....

I almost didn't see these, but decided to take one last look over the sweet kiddie buttons before moving on to more "plain" ones. And as I looked, my eyes spied these:

Jemima Puddleduck!

Little, naughty Peter Rabbit!

And either Mrs. Rabbit or Flopsy(from the Flopsy Bunnies)!

Are these not to die for!? I love them:-) They are sweet little shank buttons and just so sweetly painted. I do believe I will use the smaller ones on a day gown or two and the larger ones perhaps I will save for a coat, sweater or larger dress for my sweet one:-)

Well, I do hope you enjoyed my little button fashion show:-) Next I will share the fabrics!

Oh Sommer, I love all your sweet little buttons. Can't wait to see your fabrics. I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and always leaving me your kind comments...and I really appreciate the scone recipe. Will be trying it soon. Take care!

Oh, I have so many posts to catch up on! :)

Your buttons are so cute. I just love the Beatrix Potter ones! I don't think my Jo Anns carries them and if they did, alas, I have no little girlies to sew for. :( I can't wait to see how you will use them in your projects!

Thanks for stopping by my new blog! I'm a constant learner when it comes to conquering clutter myself, so I don't have many suggestions. Thursday this week I'll be posting some of my favorite books and links that have helped me and that will be one topic included, so stop back. Congratulations on the wee one on the way!

I am not much of a seamstress but I do love those buttons especially the Beatrix Potter ones (I don't think you are surprised at that!). I'm so glad you had a lovely time at Joanne's. :)
