I just had to write a quick post about the lovely handmade and hand-painted buttons I received the other day from my talented friend Anna. She makes the sweetest little buttons and as she takes custom orders, I asked if she could make me some bluefinches. Even though I'd seen a picture of them before they were sent, I still did a little "eeeeeep!" when opening the envelope!

Anna makes the buttons from polymer clay and then paints the intricate designs on by hand. The attention to detail is just amazing and each button is a little work of art. (Excuse the photos - they were taken on my phone as I'm supposed to be working, oops.)

The teeny little buttons feature my shop's logo. I am planning on making some gloves or wristwarmers and stitching these onto the wrists. As for the larger ones, I don't have any plans for them yet but I'm absolutely in love with them!
