Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got The Buttons?

If you sew, you've probably got alot!  We've been seeing buttons pop up on all sorts of fun things lately.  We saw these cute shoes on Pinterest, they were made by Sushma Bharadwaj.  Aren't they adorable?

Our friends over at Blumenthal Lansing have lots of great ideas for using buttons too!  How about a pretty pin or a fun clock?
