Bunnies, buttons and bags


We have a new addition to our family - Topsy! Isn't she lovely? Unfortunately she is only staying with us for a while as she is destined to be a gift for my niece. Topsy was made by Emma. I earmarked her last week at Emma's Open House and collected her yesterday. Looking at all the gorgeous goodies on display yesterday I could have bought them all! If you look closely at the photo you'll see that Topsy did not come alone - Emma gave my oldest daughter and me the two lovely brooches and my youngest was given that beautiful hairband. Thanks Emma! How lucky and happy are we!

I also received this parcel of goodies from the very kind Gill at Lucy Locket. Thank you! Lovely old buttons, vintage lace, threads and the beautiful fabric in the background. There were also buttons of the chocolate variety, and you'll pleased to know Gill, that I've already found a use for them!


Inspired by my new fabric and buttons I made this new corsage and posy, using some of my new treasures.
And that's not all, fuelled by my recent chocolate consumption, my energy levels reaching an all time high this weekend, I have also managed to start a new little bag and pompom. Hopefully these will be finished over the next few days and, of course, those energy levels will have to be kept up somehow ....

Isn't it funny what buttons can do to a girl...I almost go weak at the knees when I see a tin of buttons:-)
I love your beautiful new items but then you know that I like ALL the things that you make!
Take care,

Thank you Kim for the mention! Vintage buttons are the best and I find it so hard to use them!!! I saw your pom pom on Samanthas blog, so sweet. They remind me of those rose covered ones you used to get, smelling all yummy too.

Everything is so pretty! I love the bunny, and all your buttons and trims are gorgeous (I am in awe over what looks like some dainty Irish crochet - my fav)! And your ragged-rose creations... always a treat to behold! Hope you had a great weekend!

I love your new treasures - the buttons and lace are beautiful and you have definitely put them to good use. Lovely new posies ... to keep one's mind distracted from rain and being in the garden!

Your garden is lovely. I do like foxgloves too and those shutters are just my type of thing. What a lovely idea to leave letters for fairies - do they reply?
