One of things I miss about new york is all the inspiration you can find for free. When I was feeling blue I would walk down to the garmet district during lunchtime. I would poke my head into my favorite button and fabric stores and somehow feel revived. The fanciest one of the bunch is m&j. I have many more in my arsenal but this was the only button store I had photos of. Below are some button creations I discovered via fffound! The pieces are wallhangings of hundreds of buttons sewn onto backing to form shapes. God, I just love buttons!
