Button-Eyed Creatures! Oh My!


Hey - check out this cool creature! She's "Farnesworth" and is a creation made by Anne of Creatures Northwest. Farnesworth's eyes are made from my Trinkets' hand painted buttons - stacked one on top of the other. Isn't this the neatest use for buttons? I think so!

Anne was super nice and right after she ordered, my daughter and I had to immediately go check out her site. Look at all these other funky creations! We wanted one of each! You have to get yourself over there, and of course, get some funky buttons for your own creations at Trinkets.

And new this week - another mixed media birdhouse! I just can't get enough of birds and bird houses! :)
