Buttons From Sue

Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio is hosting a Button Swap and Blog Hop. Button lovers from all over were paired up to swap 4 buttons, create something, and then on May 13th share their creations in a blog hop. I was paired up with Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads.

And here's what she sent me...

This little Scottie button belonged to Sue's Grandmother, who was Scottish and loved Scotties. I just love it! My little girl, Pepper is a terrier—a rat terrier and not a scottie, but they all have the same loving heart and that fearless/protector attitude—terriers stole my heart a long time ago.

This next button is one Sue made herself. Sue makes some fabulous glass and enamel beads and when I found out she was my swap partner, I was secretly hoping I'd get a button made by her... and I did! How super is that?!! And it's just gorgeous! She just started making buttons and I hope she keeps at it. Check out her shop here to see more of what she makes.

I want these...

And these! They're orange!! :-)

Okay, back to the buttons...
A very neat fish button... I think something nautical will come of this one...

And finally, a pretty ceramic flower button made by Lisa Peters. Don't you think that crackle finish is to-die-for? I love it! I have ideas for this one too.

Thanks so much Sue! I love all my buttons!!

So, what did Sue get from me?
And that's all you get to see! I'll show you what's inside after Sue sees it first!

Time to get creating! Come back on May 13th for the reveal!

  1. Lovely!!! I can't wait to see what you make with them. I received mine from my partner but have done nothing other than open the package and photograph them. I'm keeping busy with several other blog hops and challenges--need to get busy.

  2. Goodness, those button are just great!! I cannot wait to see what you create with them! That glass one made just for you really is SUPER too.

  3. I totally LOVE my buttons, I am going to put it on my blog tomorrow, I have been so bad about blogging lately, and everything else for that matter... I just have so many home projects going on at one time, and not many of them are just because I want to! Thank you so much for the post!

  4. These are all so very pretty! I love each and every one of them....so hard to pick one! Lucky!!
