It rained most of the weekend, but today was lovely . . . so I nabbed the chance to leave work when I could and took Chesney, my Jack Russell, on a long walk. I took the camera with me again, and while I don't seem to be shooting much besides all the lovely flowers in bloom, I had fun all the same. When I got home I took the time to photograph some of my button magnets and update the shop. I realized (yet again) how much inspiration I get just from my everyday surroundings. Or do I just connect with the same things in the everyday that I do when I create? I think the side by side comparisons here will illustrate my point.
Dogwood blossoms against the sky and buttons made from a vintage children's book.
Apple blossoms (my May favorite smell--- you can't beat coming across an old apple tree in the Vermont woods in May) and Alice in Wonderland in pink.
Both sets of buttons are available in the shop, and the "buy one, get one" deal is still being honored!
