Beads, Buttons and Bows

Even though I'm a bit behind, I could not let an opportunity to create a button tag go by!
A few days ago, Karen from The Graphics Fairy gave us all this gorgeous vintage picture of a girl picking apples.  I though it was perfect -- for Fall, and for this challenge.  Her apron got a bow, the apples she's picking are sewn-on red beads, and the buttons are along the bottom edge for balance.
I couldn't find ribbon in just the right shade, so I used some silky fabric, cut narrowly and frayed.  (Did you notice I just rhymed?)  Come visit me some time on Button Floozies, another blog of mine; we LOVE buttons over there!

  4. Laurie, this is precious!! My favorite part is the apron bow you've added, set at just the right angle...it looks wind-blown! And how cute are those apple beads?! Adorable.
