Buttons and Brads

This week it dawned on me that I have a room full of stuff and its time to think of ways of using up stash. Starting with the button bank here is a little crocheted Tea Cosy covered with buttons. Yes, the other side is just as buttony!
Tea Cosy with slightly less buttons and a little button tassel at the side. I'm taking both these cosies as samples to my Crochet Tea Cosy Workshop this Saturday. No naked teapots this summer, please. Now for the brad mountain. I am taking part in an online handmade flower swap this month and in an effort to get away from a completely crocheted flower I made up these flowers from scraps of felt, net, small bits of crochet and used brads (all Papermania) for the centers.

More funky flowers. So that is this weeks destash attempt. I'm putting this post into Andrea's "Lush Friday" show and tell.
