Upcycled Heirloom Button Earrings

The day ended much better yesterday. Colin and I raked leaves in the dark last night, which was a blast. We still have a lot more to do but we filled 6 39 gallon bags and only got 1/2 of the back yard done. I have to say that raking with help is much better, last year we had just moved and he had just started working at this job (same company). I raked all those leaves by myself, it took me 4 days and almost 2 boxes of bags. I was so happy to not be living in Phoenix though that I didn't care. I know we still both feel the same way, we missed the 4 seasons.

I am going to share a small surprise, it should be arriving at my grandma's door today or tomorrow and I couldn't wait any longer. I had a really hard time photographing them since they are so small. Maybe she will share a photo of herself with them. :) They look much better hanging. I made them using her mothers buttons and a single green pearl hung on sterling silver. Check out my website for other styles of button earrings.

I restocked a few beads to complete the bracelets for this wedding and am still working on those. Next week I need to make an order so this doesn't happen again.
