Hello,

This is the first time I have entered a challenge and it has been so much fun, time consuming but fun.
My husband and sons think I am nuts and being non-crafty males have no understanding of why I would want to spend hours playing with buttons.  I guess that's their loss!
 I spent about a week thinking about what to decorate usually during breakfast and that was what I did in the end, decorate breakfast.
 I made the felt food a while ago so I sewed the buttons on those.  I painted a few buttons for better contrast on the toaster, (which was off limits for a few days), and made some out of Fimo when I ran out of blue buttons for the mug. 
 
So here is my bountiful button breakfast...



and here is the before pic



thanks for looking

That is absolutely hysterical.  granted I'm not sure what I would actually do with a button breakfast but I had to tell you that I do believe you got my vote!  Very creative!
