I Heart Pearl Buttons!
I found some PINK!! (Wink!) If you saw my last post, I was trying to get some PINK to have for Pink Saturday. Well, with the heart theme going on this week, I looked around and found this pin cushion! Be sure and check out the Pink Saturday Party at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/
This vintage piece was from a dear lady's sewing things. She allowed me to have all of her sewing tins, and this was one of the finds!
Now you know how much I love pearls, and of course lace, but I love buttons too...especially PEARL buttons! I love the lustre, the shades of white from bright to cream, the natural glow of them. They are gorgeous and I love working with them. I also love to look at them!!
I've found a number of unique styles and shapes of buttons in my perusing, but these are some of my favorites.
The picture above of the square glass buttons is my very favorite. I just can't get enough of the shades of cream! I have a few pink buttons thrown in to help show the difference too. I think favorite is that darker button at the bottom left of the picture...it's just about perfect!
And I just must show you a few rhinestone studded buttons too! But wait, if you look, you'll see they are actually pearlized too!
Now that we've seen the Pearls, I'll show you LACE!!!
I have been playing with my camera again, reading the direction book (Aha!!) and really trying hard to understand all the technical jargon so that I can improve my picture taking. I have found the Bracket setting which allows me to set a variable with which the camera will shoot three different lighting settings of the same shot. I take three pictures of each shot, and choose the best lighting of the three! It wastes some space on the card, but I always delete my card contents after a photo-shoot anyway, so who cares?
Now, I'm still trying to learn, but I think the pics are better. What do you think?
Join me this week for Pearls and Lace Thursday and share something pretty with us!
