A Little Love

Well hello there! I hope everyone is staying warm! It was in the teens here for a few days last week but it is warming up. It snowed and iced too. Our driveway never sees much sun so I couldn't get my car out all week. I finally got it out Friday morning. I could beg for no more snow and no more bone chilling temperatures but I will only be desperately disappointed.
So here's the story here. I had a bajillion mismatched buttons I grabbed at one of those crazy discount box stores that has a little bit of everything and wanted to do something with them. I rifled through my drawers to find a shirt that I wasn't that attached to. I found this fuchsia sweater-y thingie that almost went in the donate pile but I pulled it out for some reason. Thinking I may like it again some day or thought it would be good for layering. I thought this would be a good shirt to be a guinea pig for button craft-o-rama.
I have a confession to make. I did NOT sew the buttons on. I cheated. I glue! I know! I know. What can I say? I really wasn't sure it would work out so I kind of just winged it. So here I am with a huge button flower on my chest.

So cute!! This outfit is really adorable, kind of retro. I love those little shoes--they look vintage! And the last photo of the button heart on the sweater is gorgeous!! Amazing that you did it yourself :) I'm a new follower
