And where have I been....


Pinterest is always sending pins that I might want to see.  I used to look at all the CQ ones.  But all of us who CQ tend to collect all the same images and our pin sites are very similar and you see the same needlework   over and over.

But today this image popped up on a site.  I was first drawn in by the striped borders with the buttons irregularly placed and the more I studied it the more I was fascinated.  I will never look at buttons the same again..   This work was done by internationally recognized artist, Nancy Smeltzer but I had never seen her work. 

I have to admit to being a button snob and never give kitschy plastic buttons a second look but just look at them here.



I had to immediately google her work and here are some more images...  Enjoy as I'm off to dig through my boxes of buttons..

What amazing pieces! I have an embarrassingly large collection of buttons and I should try to do something similar with at least a few of them.
