Button, Button- Who's Got the Button? Jewelry GIVEAWAY

*This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering.*

When I was a little girl, my grandma used to play the button game with my siblings, cousins and me. She would make a big production out of choosing a button from her old tin, and then she'd put the button in one hand, put her hands behind her back, and while we sat on the steps, she'd say, "Button Button, who's got the button?"
We'd each guess a hand, and if we were correct, we could move up a step. This was a great game, and a memory about my grandma that I love.

I have adored anything with buttons ever since. In fact, I now have my grandma's button tin, along with several large glass jars of my own which I filled with the buttons I've collected over the years. So, needless to say, anything with buttons cathes my eye.

Knowing that, you can only imagine how excited I was when I stumbled across the fantastic Etsy shop, Mrs. Gibson's Atelier. We are talking about some SERIOUS button goodness! The artist and store owner, Sam Gibson, creates the most delightful button jewelry I have ever seen! This bracelet happens to be my favorite:



Isn't it beautiful? The vintage and new white and cream-colored buttons are perfect for winter!

Button jewelry isn't the only thing sold by Mrs. Gibson's Atelier. When you visit the Etsy shop, you will find other pretty items, such as London Glass Locket Relic Pendants, silver jewelry, handbags and more! This stunning handbag is another favorite of mine:



That is the Duck Egg Blue Velvet and Silk Handcrafted Metal Frame Handbag. Simply gorgeous!

I love this shop! My dilemma is which item I like best. I would like to get the Romantic Gypsy Money Coin Charm Bracelet 1938 Threepenny Piece 1882 Belgium Cent for my sister. She loves to travel and her husband is from India. I love the Swarovski Crystal Absinthe Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet (among other items) for myself. Thank you for the opportunity.

Wow, what a great idea!
I have lots of old buttons too! She should offer custom work with "family heirloom buttons".
I'm torn between the Fresh Leafy Green Emerald City Button Charm Bracelet
and
Winter Berry Deep Burgundy Red Button Charm Bracelet. I want them for myself! Is that bad? :)
