cake & buttons

To go along with my photo challenge for today . . . 
pineapple upside down cake was a must tonight.  Simple recipe - here.
DELICIOUS!  

I was also in the mood to play with buttons.  
I sorted out pink ones, red ones, white ones . . . thinking Valentine's day of course.
Buttons are always fun and I like how the little heart turned out. 
I used 28 gauge wire.  After just stringing the buttons on the wire the heart was a little flimsy, so I cut another piece of wire and wrapped it around the wire holding the button . . . on the back side of the heart . . . wrapping the wire 2-3 time around the wire in between each button.  (if that even makes sense).  If I make another one I will take some pictures.

    1. I don't know why I don't make it more often . . . thinking about the upside down prompt made me think of it . . . then I couldn't not not make it. Making things with Gds is fun!

  2. Oh, that is so funny! I came to your blog from Lorraine's and copied your list of photo prompts, and am trying to do some of them. Pineapple upside-down cake is one of the things that crossed my mind for upside-down! Yum - it does look delicious!! And waah, your lovely heart photo makes me wish I was in Paris.
