Here's My Heart






I found these gorgeous heart buttons still attached to their original card. Aren't they beautiful? Not willing to let well enough alone, I glued them to a piece of fabric and framed these little beauties!




 There they are on my desk...so sweet.





 I love red and baskets...so...when I saw this little red sewing basket....it was coming home with me.







See how soft and faded the inside is? There were several cards of buttons inside. I wonder who loved this little basket before I found it?













Here are some of my favorite fonts from dafont.com. They are free. That makes them even better.



 Until next time.

Your buttons look so cute framed. I love the little sewing basket. I love baskets too so it probably would have come home with me too.

Visiting from Freestyle Friday. I love the buttons! My grandma was notorious for hoarding buttons and lace...and now I am so glad. I love using them in my projects. I love that you frames the chocolate buttons. Perfect! I linked this project up: http://thepetitesewist.blogspot.com/2012/01/roses-are-red-apron-tutorial.html

I love the cute heart shaped buttons and they look wonderful framed. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing, have a great day.

The framed heart is so cute. I love buttons. Your sewing basket is cute too, I don't know if I've seen on in red before. My BFF has given me some great old sewing notions, buttons, needles, needles holder etc. I keep them out so I can see them. Dont you just wonder who had them before, and what they life was like? Thanks for sharing you creative inspiration with Sunday's Best Par.tay!

Those buttons look like little heart-shaped chocolates. Almost good enough to eat.

My mom was a seamstress and had a fabulous button collection that I played with as a child so these buttons are especially precious to me. Stopped by from Common Ground.
