Merry Christmas Buttons!

While surfing some favorite websites, I stumbled across a button ornament swap over at Button Floozies. I have not participated in a swap in a very long time but there was something about ornaments with buttons that I could not pass up. Looking through my craft stash I found some chipboard dress forms purchased at Red Lead where I always buy my favorite supplies.

Here are the ornaments I made to trade:

Along with this tag:

In return I receive these three special ornaments:

The cute little burlap stocking on the left was from Terri. It is adorable. The lace and buttons she sewed on are just perfect!

The little round ornament in the middle was made by Wendy. It is very sweet and hand sewn with vintage buttons.

The ornament on the right was sent by Joni. Isn't it fabulous and creative? I just love the little muff the girl is holding.


  1. I am so excited about participating in this. Such creative and lovely sights. What a learning experience. Blessings

  2. I loved the dress form ornaments you sent. I love sewing and am trying to get myself to do it more, plus my mom is a sewer, so you hit a sweet spot with those.

    Thanks for the ornament.

  3. Those dresses ornaments are simply darling! So cute, so original, so unique. Love 'em.

  4. Your dresses are so much fun! And, like someone else said, they can be used year 'round, too!

  5. I was lucky enough to receive the green dotted dress form ornament and one of those cute tags! Thanks so much!

  6. Love, love your dress ornaments, so clever.
    Everyone received such wonderful gifts.

  7. Such a lovely swap and your ornaments are fab!

  8. Beautiful ornaments and such sweet ones back. It was a fun swap.
