Free Digital Ephemera & Art. Summer Fresh Meadow Flowers Red Poppies, White Daisies, and Blue Cornflowers.

 Hi everyone! Hope you are having a peaceful and creative day. 
I have a question for you all. Every once in awhile I look at the 'stats' for my blog. Nothing fancy or complicated. There are a few colorful charts that show the number of page views, top referring URLS, keywords and the countries my visitors are from. Since Bumble Button is a personal, just for fun blog and not commercial I never looked into any details. I do like to see how many people visit and from what countries.  It is rather mundane and doesn't change that much.  Except for the last three months!  Half of the page views are from Sweden!  What is going on in Sweden? My great grandmother Elsa was from Sweden so I find it kind of fun and interesting. If you can shed some light on why, please let me know!
Now on to todays pretty pictures. 
Looking through books, online museums and ephemera I noticed bouquets combining red poppies, blue cornflowers, daisies, and wheat. I started saving them until I had enough for a blog post. Such a lovely happy combination of colors and textures. My guess is these bloom at the same time of year. Imagine coming across a meadow full of these flowers! 
Thank you for the kind comments! They inspire me to keep looking for images for all of you.
Stay well, be kind, and so happy you came for a visit, Louise

Nursery Rhyme Antique Reproduction Button Cards ~Free Printies. & Clipart ~ for Mounting Novelty Buttons & Gift Cards.

Welcome to Bumble Buttons! I hope you will find something to enjoy and use. Today I have a nice batch of antique, restored kiddy button cards. Our modern novelty buttons are so cute when you sew them on. 
Wondering how you are all doing wherever you live. There always seems to be something going on.  So far the weather has been nice this summer in Sonoma County. I have been just fine without my air conditioner, which needs to be repaired.  After several evacuations due to wildfires over the last few years I appreciate the cooler weather and more importantly, no wind. Last year the fire made it to my neighbors backdoor. So much anxiety! Loving every minute of mild, no wind and no fire days. 
Playing with button cards and graphics brings me so much joy and purpose. It still amazes me that people from all over the world visit my blog.  I love your comments and wonder if you have used anything for your crafts and art work.
So glad you stopped by. Much love to all of you, Louise

Free Botanical Prints, Ephemera and Antique Postcards Labels Featuring Plump Lucious Red Cherries! All free to Print.

 Hi and welcome to one and all! 

Every year a small portion of my neighbors cherries drop on my side of the fence. The ones that fall on my patio are a little messy and not to comfortable to step on with bare feet. But they are so pretty and provide a splash of color. They are also yummy.  Actually I like the frozen cherries from Trader Joe's!

There are many darling fabrics that feature cherries. Love the ones designed by Mary Engelbreit. I have been collecting them and should have enough for a quilt soon. One of the many quilts waiting to be made.

I hope you will find an image that you like and can use in your projects. So happy you stopped by. Much love, Louise
