Buttons, Buttons & more Buttons


Here's a layout I have been wanting to do for a long time but finally got around to it. Last Fall we went to Dover, Ohio to see the Warther Museum. Mr. Warther made a living making knives which his family continue to make but he had a fabulous hobby which was carving. He carved trains from ebony and ivory and they actually had moving parts.  They are amazing but his wife also had a hobby. She collected buttons, she would sort them, and match them and then make designs and pictures with them....with each button being hand sewn on.  I am sure you will be as amazed as I was when you see these works of art.
