button shoes...


I bought these shoes from Target a few months ago. I wear them fairly often and I like them. But here's what I decided to do to them this weekend...


And now I think I like them even better!

Speaking of ballet style flats (love!), take a look at these...



And just guess where they are from. Payless Shoesource, no less. For $10. Just think of how cute they'll look with fun ribbon laced through.

Aha! They look great. Fantastic idea. I LOVE ballet pumps. They have a wondeful store called French Sole in London that produce the creme de la creme of ballet pumps. frenchsole.com is the website. xx

I love it, Amy! I'd like to try that on a tote bag. Creamy-colored buttons are my favorite.

Very, very cute. Great way to salvage a stained pair of shoes, too!

I never thought of using buttons on shoes. However, I recently covered the little shades to a chandelier all with white buttons and it looks almost as fabulous as your shoes. Thanks for always making me smile. I am addicted to your blogs!

Ooh, I do love ballet flats! Yours look great.. all those buttons are so cute and fun! I once covered a pair with Starburst wrappers.. that was fun. :)

Ack! Those are adorable! I love how you even updated the lining. I have a thing for mother of pearl buttons, they are my favorite.
