Christmas smiles.

Just a few photos to make you smile.
.
 Granddaughter is learning how to use a camera.
What is so cute about this photo is I bought the hat she is wearing several years ago.
It wa a last minute gift I found at Walgreens.
It is a kitty hat and when you squeeze the paws in front the tail flips up.
She has worn it for three years. You never know what gift they will love the best.
These are some of her first photos. Not too shabby for a 6 year old.

I took these from the computer so they are somewhat grainy. 
Japanese Son post them so they have his name on the photos.



 Of course I love this one the best.
.


I wanted daughter and roommates to have something to open before they visit
after Christmas. Gifts will be open then.
 I started to work on these pillows over 15 years ago and just put them away unfinished.
I love buttons and have jars and bowls of them.
Last night I finished the pillows and will send them off tomorrow.
They are all hand stitched but I found out my fingers do not work as they once did.
They came out cute but as I said I love buttons !
I wrap gifts and tie string and bows with buttons, glue them on boxes 
and cut tin ornaments.







.
They have 3 cats and one dog so even if these Christmas Trees get knocked over,
I am sure the cats can not hurt them.

Here is your pretty to start the week.
Mech-Godzilla likes Christmas Trees.

    2. Love your buttons, too. What fun. As for my coats ...

      I donated a big warm winter coat a few months back. But I kept the other coat that I love.

      My rule: If I don't wear it, it's gone, gone, GONE.

  11. I have many jars of old buttons too! I'm stealing your idea! Excuse me....must run and go buy some green felt. X

    1. No lie ! run fast ! ! !
      I "took" the idea from the Elementary School.
      Hint Just figure out where the side go and don't put buttons there. If you sewing machine is working mine is not you can sew the edges together faster than I did. I didn't have any stuffing so I tore up plastic bags.
      I made smaller ones and gave them as tree ornaments or small decorations one year.
      They are lots of fun to make.
      Good luck !

  14. Your granddaughter's pictures are fantastic, I love your button pillows and Mech-Godzilla as well!

  15. Your granddaughter has a good eye for pictures.

    I am another button fan, since I was the age of your granddaughter and liked to play with my Mom's button box. Now I have my own button box, and am always adding to it.

    Those decorated trees are fabulous. xo

  16. How sweet your granddaughter has been wearing that hat for three years. She must really love it :-) Her photos are wonderful!
    I love your pillows. Those star shaped buttons are adorable!

  17. Thanks for the smiles. No wonder your granddaughter loves that hat so much; it's adorable! And so is she. Looks like you're gonna have another photographer in the family. :)

    Those pillows are really cute. I have a TON of old buttons... some are more than sixty years old. (Hey! Ya never know when one of them might come in handy...)

  18. Our daughter was really into hats when she was younger. Not so much now. It's funny. We were just talking about it recently after not giving it much thought for years.

  19. I too have lots of buttons.......been looking this morning and I surely must have enough craft materials to see me through 2017 - sounds like a project to me.

  20. Aww...your granddaughter took some good photos and of course the one she did it of herself made me laugh...didn't we all did that at some point?
