So, Sew Pretty

I have documented my love for sewing notions, including buttons, thread, patterns and fabric, and the inspiration to be drawn from them. I always find myself saving photos that highlight these pieces, and when I discovered this photo by Shanon Gass, available as one of the new spring wallpapers available from Kindred, brainchild of EZ and Holly, I was beyond ecstatic!


The variety of colors and shapes illustrates what I love about buttons, and the image is sure to make for a happy new desktop wallpaper. I may, however, decide I also want the photo for my real-life walls as well...

And some more sewing notions eye-candy. Enjoy!

I'm a huge fan of buttons and anything displayed in large clear jars [as the thread spools are in one photo].

There is a store downtown Vancouver called Button Button that has walls and walls of beautiful buttons. I walked by it every day on my way to work in awe.

Great post!

Oh, these brought such a smile to my face! I just love all the colors and shapes. Since I can't sew to save my life maybe it will make me feel more domestic to just have all the supplies on display:)
