the Winner…

With a resounding margin, the Uber Marl button wins the b.Lime OFf! What is really funny, is I actually bought these buttons especially for this cardi at the same store I got the buttons for the Spencer Jacket. (If you are visiting the Rush St./Oak St. area, do not miss Tender Buttons! No affiliation, yadda yadda ydda). They are actually quite green, but subtle.

BUT, my confidence floundered, for no particular reason, happens alot in late winter, and I had to throw the gauntlet down on a couple of other button looks just to be sure. Thanks for helping!!!


I wouldn’t go as far as to admit to being a Collector, but I am an afficianado :) Over the years, I’ve amassed a pile or so, and can’t wait for better weather (what a tired-ass song this is becoming – my apologies) so I can go Flea Marketing in the outer counties for: BUTTONS!

Kane County: first weekend of the month, year-round

Lake Co: Every Second Weekend Each Month

DuPage Co: 3rd Sunday of the Month

Sandwich, IL: an antique market

Actually, I just like strolling around – but one SHOULD have an agenda, non? You could collect buttons your entire life and never even fill a drawer!

Aye, I hear the piper callin’ me to DuPage to wander about maybe Sunday…
