Button Monday

It's harvest time here under the poplar and pine and I thought I'd show you how I've really acquired so many vintage buttons.  The truth is...they grow here. 
 Come with me for a little walk, won't you?

If you look carefully, you can find them in the flowers.




Sometimes with coordinating spiders.


They're hidden amongst the leaves and dew.




Some disguise themselves as acorns.



They even sprout up from the earth. 



Sometimes with fancy caps.


Some are shy and try to crawl away.


Some are even edible.

 
So if you ever come to visit, bring your baskets.  You never know what will be in season.

Happy Monday!
