Yesterday I had a chance to attend the Worldwide Antique & Vintage Show, which takes place in Denver 3 times each year.

Do you visit the Tag Tuesday blog? Every week we work on a hand made tag based on the same theme. This past week's theme was "Beads, Buttons and Bows" -- so you have to go see some of the great button-y tags! (Scroll down for the ones titled, "Beads, Buttons and Bows".)
Maggie's was my favorite this time, so far! I'm still working (against the clock!) on mine!

It's funny how one thing can lead to another, isn't it? It happens a lot while perusing the Internet. I was roaming around, trying to find a button-worthy topic to write about here and was lead to a blog post about a (button) artist by the name of Augusto Esquivel.
I followed the link and was lead to his website where his amazing installations/sculptures are shown.
Noticing the word "Koumpounophobia" under his name and wondering what it meant, I looked it up online and found that it means a fear of buttons. It may be a textural phobia (plastic buttons), fear of accidentally swallowing or inhaling small buttons, or a phobia of old buttons, as they may harbor germs.
So, as one thing lead to another, a few things were learned today.
