The Creative Connection Event

Here we are in the city of Minneapolis,Minnesota on a street called Grand Avenue and it is Grand! We came to visit this quilt shop that has been around for 35 years. The whole street is so quaint with beautiful architecture and cute little stores inside.
 Of course we had to see what Riley Blake fabrics they carry. There it is Indian Summer designed by Zoe Pearn who lives in Australia. This is our minky which we call Dreamy because when you touch it you want to cuddle with it and dream the night away.


Then it happened! I asked if these were vintage buttons on the counter and the lady said no but these are. She pulled out 4 beautiful printed boxes with vintage buttons. Some were post war Germany. Many from Czechoslovakia, Austria and places all over the world. Cindy and I were googling and drueling and coveting over buttons. Who does that? Well we both splurged but I know she spent a lot more than me. ha ha



As you can see the buttons are beautiful and displayed on this heavy printed card stock. Each has a little story. How could we resist?

Shari this post is for you. This is our view from our window. You can see the Mississippi River. It is getting cold here. Cindy and I are learning a lot about social networking.
We have met the most wonderful people. I hope everyone is working on something productive. Whatever it is. Enjoy!
