A New Find

I love wood! I love branches, twigs, and bark. And I've just discovered an Etsy store dedicated to Tree Branch Buttons. It's called The Hickory Tree.   I have always loved wooden buttons. I've been wanting to incorporate some of them into my knitting and am now thoroughly inspired.

OK...it's a day after this original post and I finally got the photo added. Don't know why it didn't work before but here they are in all their beauty.

I learned about The Hickory Tree (and got the photo) from a blog by the name of La Chapstick Fanatique which I just began following. It looks like a thoroughly interesting and fun blog. Recipes, Etsy finds, AND  Giveaways! Check it out!


  1. Now Judi, where the photo? LOL! I am still drooling over these buttons. Or the magnetic hooks! those are so cool! But the buttons... oh, the buttons. Don't you just want them all?

  2. Angie, I TRIED to post a photo (not sure if it was "legal" though) but it didn't work. It just would not post for me. And, YES, I want them all! Makes me want to start making them, too. If only I had access to all those different kinds of trees that grow in Michigan! Maybe Alaska....

  3. Thanks for the repost! And you can post a photo as long as people are aware of where it came from (for future reference.)
