Yet More Buttons

It's been a while since I posted anything--where does the time go?. I've been busy frolicking about in the spring weather (well, actually I've been planting my garden, but that doesn't sound nearly as exciting).

In the meantime, I got a new order of handmade wooden buttons, from Etsy seller Hendywood, and they are really lovely, made from a variety of woods:


I'd been meaning to make more journals with wooden buttons on the covers, as people seem to like them, but the person I used to get my buttons from from stopped selling them. Now that I have a new stash, I made a new "button journal" today to put in my Etsy shop. The button you see here was made from a cherry burl, and is a nice match, I think, for the leather:

those look really nice with the leather. I like the way you tied them too!

Those buttons are just right for books, nice and flat and a good size too. The wood looks great with the leather.
