Whirlwind Gardens

Welcome to Buttonia!

There are some very special places in a land called Buttonia, (pronounced But toe nia), with the most beautiful forest and garden in all the world.

The Cranberry Forest, (pictured above in the second image), is known for it’s bright colors, beautiful and very unique birds, gorgeous buttons that grow on the trees, which are lustrous shades of every color you can imagine, and cranberry sky!

You might remember “Cranberry Forest”, which SOLD last year to a very special customer for her grandchild!

Next to the Cranberry Forest, there is a glorious flower garden, called Whirlwind Gardens. It is just amazing! The flowers are created after being tumbled about in a glittery whirlwind, and then tossed into the garden, at just the right moment!
In this garden, the butterflies and birds are glittery! Dragonflies, frogs, ladybugs, crickets and more, play in the garden every day! There are stars in the sky, and floating sequins soaring throughout the garden.

There’s even shiny, sparkly rhinestone flowers that grow along paths and close to streams!
The sky is a beautiful shade of Cranberry or Turquoise, and the clouds are always bright and cheery!

Whirlwind Gardens…

Many unique and special vintage and antique buttons were used, such as antique cut glass, china, dyed mother of pearl, bakelite, metal, celluloid, leather, and much more!

Vintage Button Posies…

🌸🌹🍀🍃🌼🌻Vintage Button Posies…

I know I may say this with a new creation, but this definitely has to be one of my favorites!!!!! I’ve wanted to make a bouquet of flowers in a vase for some time now! I can see this being very popular, and made in a small and large size.

This piece is large, 16″x20″. The background is a mixture of Steel Gray and Green Tea.

The vintage/antique buttons are miniature works of art. Each one is absolutely gorgeous! The colors are amazing – and just pop!

I’ve used two different rhinestone chains for the stems of the flowers, as well as seed beads and colored rhinestones on the vase.

The inspiration for the vase came from a wooden vase that we have had for a long time.

By the Sea!

What a joy to work on, and such a great feeling to complete! Shells, sand dollars, fish, sea turtle, and sea gulls remind us of the beauty by the sea! The vintage button sun is so bright! The vintage mother of pearl clouds are so shiny and soft, and the lime green/emerald green beaded seagulls are swooping in to enjoy this day too!

Beach: Real sand, used as grout to highlight the beautiful vintage mother of pearl buttons, filigree buttons and more. Shells, sand dollars and more create the beach experience we all love!

Sea: Gorgeous turquoise beaded and vintage button waters welcome us, as we see rhinestone silver fish, and even a cute sea turtle swimming away! Lots of currents, waves and more showing the various colors of the water!

Sky: Big, round orange and yellow seed beads and vintage buttons sun shining down on the day’s activities, with seed bead seagulls flying in the sky too! The vintage mother of pearl, seed bead clouds seem to be floating in the lovely seed bead, vintage button sky!

Vintage Button Cards!

🐚🐙🐠🐟🐋🐳🌊⚪◽The artwork and designs on these vintage button cards are awesome. I thought I would share a couple that I just used. I emptied one card of mother of pearl buttons, but there are still a few on the other one. There’s a lot more design and color on these button cards, and it sure is a lot of fun when you stumble onto one.
