These are the awesomely cute buttons I won in an online contest hosted by Michele at Quilting Bloggers Directory. Look them up if you get the chance. Michele’s site lists bunches of talented folks and their blogs, of which mine is one (thanks, Michele!). The giveaway itself was from Incomparable Buttons of South Africa. Their company employs local women, helping them earn an income to support their families. Their website is http://www.buttonmad.com/ or visit their blog at http://incomparablebuttons.blogspot.com/. Their catalog features oodles of handmade (you can see fingerprints on the backs of these babies) buttons of all sizes.
