Who's Got the Button?

One of my favorite notions - the old mother of pearl button - monochromatic, simple and useful - the mother of pearl button is elegant but still a functional piece of our daily lives.
I've met a wonderful artist - through French General - who digs her way through old button warehouses and shops and sends me the most beautiful button cards. Mother of pearl, wooden, glass and bakelite buttons - she finds them all and sends them my way. I like the idea of making button cards - like the fabric swatch cards - saving one of your favorite buttons - or maybe just saving the extra buttons that come with your new sweater. Sewing these bits onto a card and making a button craft.
