button up

These buttons travel. They've already been to Stitch 'n Bitch, and on Ravelry. Now that they actually have a yoke to ride on, they're making a stop over here.

One set of them will grace this sweater. Which? I'm thinking the lovely art deco brown. They remind me of so many good things: satin curtains above a theatrical stage, formal gowns and tuxedos, trees in the tropics, sweet pineapples.

The flowers, though. Very fun. Very Anthropologie.


Button notes:

Brown -- from my b-day button jar from Natalie

I can see why you are going back and forth on the buttons. They are both gorgeous. My first impression was to go with the flowers. I love a little anthropology flair, like your penguin pockets! A little flair always makes me happy. Can't wait to go button shopping in a few days. If I don't scrap this danged sweater!

Both sets of buttons are so perfect, that I think we have to figure out a way that you can change the buttons depending on your mood. Some sort of snap-on method, maybe?

I'll bet Molly will know what to do!

Wow, that yarn is GORGEOUS, too. Nice choice! I am partial to the flowers but yo soy un goober.

Both sets of buttons are bea-u-ti-ful. You couldn't go wrong either way. With that said, my first impulse when I saw the pictures, was that I liked the flower ones with that top best. So cute!

Oh please, the flowers...

And FOR.HEAVEN'S.SAKE! Where do you get this endless supply of buttons? I'm remembering a post in the past, but I'll blame it on chemo.

All I want for Christmas are, well, a jar of buttons! Incredible...
