Have you noticed that buttons are popping up everywhere these days? I love it! I happen to wear these two cheeky numbers on my jacket with pride . . . must be the art history nerd in me.
I have also been swooning over the beautiful buttons on offer at The Indigo Bunting. Aren't they fun? I can picture topping a pretty package with them or pinning them to a blazer when I am having a bad day. Too bad they are sold out!
And then I stumbled across these two amazing public art projects involving buttons on Plenty of Colour this week (it's like Chloé is writing posts just for me; love that blog!). The top three images are of a campaign by Partners for Mental Health—created by Blok Design—that allowed people to wear take and wear buttons that corresponded to their mood. The bottom two images are of ba similar project by Rethink Communications for the Vancouver Contemporary Art Gallery where visitors were able to take pins that represented how they feel about contemporary art. Brilliant, right?
Speaking of buttons! You may have noticed that if you hover over the images in my posts a Pinterest icon appears on the right bottom corner...go ahead. Try it! If you click that button when it appears it will allow you to easily pin that image to you Pinterest account. Hope you like this new feature; should be fun for the pin-crazy like me!
