To Everything There is a Season. Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3
It appears to be a season of blogging for me. I feel blessed to have met so many interesting, capable, creative women. The talent pool in blogland is remarkable. I am grateful to call some of these fellow bloggers my friends.
Last year, this little plaque hung on my porch just like it is. Now that I've begun blogging though, I just can't leave anything alone! I've seen too much! ;-)
This denim pinwheel was added first. I attached it with fine gauge wire threaded through a dark button.
That's better! Next a garland made of layered buttons was created, again using fine gauge wire. I kept the color palette neutral with a touch of blue and orange.
Are you familiar with Mary Engelbreit's flowers? I love their simple beauty. (This orange polka dot button just makes me smile! Polka dots always do.)
Mary's flowers were the inspiration for this garland made with buttons. A few tabs were added for a little movement in Autumn breezes.
Beginning on the pinwheel side, the button garland was wrapped around the jute hanger in an effort to hide the wire as much as possible.
Here's my completed project.

I'm not sure I'll get to move forward in the challenge, but plan to complete a project in each of the catetories. It's so fun to try something new! Please join me by clicking H E R E !
Thank you to all the inspirational bloggers! I hope this season is filled with joy for you! BTW... What's your favorite project with buttons?
