Anyone who reads this blog regularly will likely know of my affection/obsession for vintage buttons. Recently I've tried to curb my instinct of saving things for best and now I'm on a mission to stop simply admiring my button collection and start using them. First up, these two bracelets. I'm no great jewelry maker, in fact, I find it rather a tedious process for some reason, but I love the end result.
Then I remembered this free printable from How About Orange a while back and used it for teacher thank you notes. I'm not making gifts this year, but still wanted the children to send a small thank you note to each of their teachers. I pretty much let them pick whatever buttons they wanted from my jars - some old, some new.
Dear Madame Gabrielle, I hope your baby comes out of your tummy. Thank you for being my teacher. I hope you have a lovely holiday. Ruby.
