Vintage Mother of Pearl Buttons

Just a few of my buttons in pretty little dishes for White Wednesday.

The wind is so terrible today and it's gusting worse tonight. The airport has major delays and the trucks are not traveling. We are surrounded by trees and I keep waiting for a branch to come through a window...that's how bad it sounds out there!

I don't deal well with strong wind but looking at the soft shades of the white buttons is calming my nerves...a little...





Several of these buttons came from one of my favorite Etsy shops...

Thanks for stopping by!

They are beautiful...never saw stars before!! Hope the weather clears soon. We had wild wind yesterday and last night, but we don't have large trees near our house. It just sounded spooky...kind of Halloweeny!

I know what you mean about the weather-we live in the country-and sometime I think we will blow away. The star buttons are neat!
