Buttons Buttons! Who's Got The Buttons?

My yo yo mat does! 
I took about a zillion pics of it when I finished it!
But I narrowed it down to just a few to show you.  Aren't they just so yummy!?  I tried really hard to alternate the colors evenly but I became so confused!  I somehow ended up with 3 red dotty yo yos in one row but we like red dotties-right?
These yo yos sort of remind me of old fashioned cloth ice packs.  Either that or sea urchins.  
Uh-oh!  The buttons make my candy corn candles sit crooked!  Oh well- I don't think they mind!

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post!  You all are such an encouragement to me!

I'm linking up to REDNESDAY at Brown Gingham Creations!

Holly, your yoyo mat is a rainbow of happiness! There is no such thing as too much red dotty fabric...anywhere! It's funny, but when I think of red polka dots I think of you...lol!

The buttons add the perfect touch! These look like such fun to make! I might try to make a few...they are so colorful and fun! Sweet hugs!

An awesome piece of work you did. I have an old guilt like this but no buttons. That is a great idea, but very time consuming. I admire you for seeing it thorough. You have a real treasure.

Hey Holly! I'm so happy you came today. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I reallly enjoy Rednesdays and couldn't see it get lost in the business of the other weekdays. You'll also notice my own Redness post is still missing 8/
I love your runner and the little vignette.

Those are really cute with the buttons. Cute Cute Cute
Wouldn't they make cute berets for a little girl or even added to a little shirt?

Red is simply the best color so a row with 3 is fantastic. Love your yo-yos!

Oh Holly, I have a stack of 1930-70's magazines. Folks tear em apart for the ads and pitch the rest, but they are little timecapsules, I go to the antique mall etc and find something vintage...you can go to the back of these mags and sometimes find the item giving it a date. I keep sayin I want a time machine to go back and get some of this stuff..not for resale//not to change history...not to bet on a game and win $$....to use okay $$ on it would be incredible imagine the food savings....sigh

The buttons really set it off...so cute. I love how you have decorated for fall. Guess what, I went by the Salvation Army with my daughter ,after she had taken me to the doctor on Thursday...and BINGO...found two vintage pyrex bowls...a small red and a medium yellow. Starting me a little collection of them. Blessings on your weekend Holly
