I love buttons! You love buttons! We all love buttons!

Here are some things that have made me happy this week and so I think they are worth sharing.

I have always had a soft spot for gingham and I love the daintiness of daisies. I once designed and made a purple gingham dress and some daisy Fimo earrings specially for a lecture at art college. Oh! How pretentious but I loved every minute of it. So imagine how I jumped for joy when I found these gorgeous mouth watering little beautys at . They are so perfect together and I am eager to start creating.

I've also recently bought these must have flower buttons. Yum! I do feel very fortunate that not far from where I live is a small yet perfectly sized haberdashery. It is stocked with everything a crafter could possibly need including a wall of buttons, yes a wall of buttons!

My girls. They always put a smile on my face- although not when they spend the whole day on their DS'. But today I don't care because it's the Easter holidays and we can just chill. No clock watching for two weeks, no making packed lunches before I've had time to fully open my eyes and no uniforms to iron. I bet my youngest daughter won't even wash her hair! I love it.


  1. I love buttons too....must get some actually....

  2. One of the best places that I've found is right on our doorstep .....the haberdashery stall at the indoor market in Kendal. I'm sure you're there most days
