Ill start by being honest and telling you I took these pictures a few weeks ago...they look a little different today.
Nestled in here...
...and everywhere...
This easy project doesnt need much explanation...fork, faucet handle, vintage earring and a little Gorilla Super Glue is all you need...
I even like them just hanging around on this fun bed frame thingy in my kitchen...Im thinking thats where theyll live this winter.

We all have "gifts" right?  Well, sadly gardening and maintaining plants is not one of mine.  I try every year and every year about this time they start to look pretty sad.  So if you're like me, here's a very simple idea to brighten up those poor little pots...

Fjerda...I'm a pro at sorting buttons too - you can never have too many, and I try to keep them sorted by color at least.

Thanks for sharing!

Fjerda writes: Cute idea and we just pick up the mother load of buttons last week. I spent hours the last two days sorting and packaging them--so, now I think I will use a couple of them before we put them up for sale. I think this will be great for our Trash to Treasure Charity Auction later this month!! Posted: 11:49 pm on July 28th

Allielou53 writes: Oh, Laurel! You can see beauty hidden around every corner, in every pile of junk. These are darling! It is a delight to see the every new/old thing you'll create. Amazing! <3 Posted: 5:36 pm on July 28th
JunkArchitect writes: Laurel, what a cool idea. I’m sure there will be a lot of junkers replicating this look.
