Buttons & Blooms
More than a hint of nostalgia here. Silk cabbage roses (from Flights of Fancy) in mauve and green anchor opposite corners and shabby trim lines the right-hand side. I found the delightfully distressed door escutcheon in Taos at a marvelous little shop by the San Francisco de Asis Church. A waterfall of miniature buttons (found at a 7 Gypsies parking lot sale a few years ago) cascades down the center, along with bits of vintage book spine and a copper stamping of a graceful hand A cabinet card is adorned with a brass stamping. Two young sisters, dressed in their Sunday finery watch wide-eyed. Another piece ready for Open Studios.
