I confess to buying more buttons.. for my work of course :)
We had a great day out and i have to admit I got my button fix!
I was in a bit of a restrained mood though, and left a lovely glass fronted cupboard that could have been great for storing button jars in The Glory Hole. From there I took home some old curtains to repurpose and a knitting bag to put in the shop . No buttons :(
We then went for lunch at The Farmyard Picnic which was fab, a little bit cold and wintery so fairly quiet. We followed lunch with cake :) A brilliant place to escape from the real world. I will be putting some of my handmade bits for sale there, they have been waiting a while, I promised I would deliver a box on Wednesday (any excuse for more cake !), So no pressure ;)
Then we drove back up the A350 to The Dairy House to visit Sue from Vintage to Victorian.
Soooo many buttons and gorgeous vintage fabric some from the 18th Century.
Arthur was getting a bit tired by the time we got there and was to whiney for me to concentrate properly, which was probably a good thing really.
There are lots of drawers to open and sift through, full of buttons there was also tubs of buttons that Sue was sorting which were unpackaged, so you get that lovely childhood feeling of going through grannys button box.
I came home with the ones above, which i am going to turn into bracelets and put a few in my shop. I like to share a proportion of what I buy (for a price obviously ;), because I can not use them all at once.
Now some pictures have gone completely missing??!! and will now end up on top as I add them in. One day I may get the hang of this.
