Never Too Early

It's never too early to start checking out button possibilities for a project. From my button collection, here are three prospects for Isabel's vest (she rejected out of hand the idea of pewter clasps). 

The ram's head and the painted wooden buttons are from Philosopher's Wool. I'm not sure where I picked up the other. Isabel is voting for the celtic swirl, I'm voting for the wooden one, and so far no one is picking the ram's head. Is it too masculine?


  1. Perhaps it is my monitor, but the painted one does not look like it's the right color. I'm sure that's not so, or you wouldn't be picking it. I think the motif of the Celtic swirl is better with the design.

  2. I vote celtic swirl too. The wooden one seems too noticeable and the rams head too strong. IMO.
