Button Up in Green

Somehow I can’t stop myself from photographing all things green this week. Today at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival, I stopped at the vintage buttons booth.

Thanks Michelle from Dusty’s Vintage Buttons from South Carolina.  I’d offer a link but she doesn’t have one. You have to catch her next year at the festival.  She started collecting when she got buttons from a friend’s grandmother and hasn’t stopped.

  1. A real green fest! I’m trying to teach myself how to follow simple crochet patterns again instead of granny squares. I’ve spent hours this weekend and I’m nearly there with the pattern but now the wool I’ve chosen splits – really annoying!

  3. I’ve never considered green to be a favorite color, but for some reason I love your photos of all things green!
