Bird Buttons (Button Love)

I have this problem.

 It's kinda embarrassing. But, well... we're all friends here.

I have a button habit. I once spent $40 on buttons (okay, in my defense they were on SALE and I just inappropriately rounded down).

Seriously, every time we go into Joann's my 2 year old asks if "this is the yarn and button store?" I buy him buttons too, and even ask his advice- "The big ones or the little ones?" and like the good little boy he is, he responds "The big ones AND the wittle ones."

 My button love started when my crochet habit kicked into high gear. I realized that embellishments (generally buttons, though brooches, beads and ribbon have their place as well) were 95% of the vibe of the piece. The wrong button would result in a flop. The right button, conversely, would make something POP!

I love this guy. Doesn't he look so liberated?

So now the button love is coming to an end... How bout those owls!? Crazy adorable. And I love the sparrows/songbirds, they're darling! And the bluebird at the top just makes me happy. Ooh, ooh, and the little purple button is the same color as my PurpleChair. Mhmm, Button LOVE!

Which is your favorite?
