Buttons buttons buttons

When I was growing up, my nana had this big container of buttons that I used to love sorting out into colours and shapes.  I’ve always loved pretty buttons (not to mention I’d love to start my own button collection like my nana) so when a friend started selling handmade buttons I was in heaven!

Check out the gorgeous buttons I received in the mail this morning!  The orange and pink ladybirds already have something waiting for them and Morgan has claimed the owls and ordered me to knit her something.

For anyone else out there who loves buttons as much as me (or even if you don’t) check out Buttons by Benji for heaps more gorgeous buttons (and she’ll send anywhere in the world), I know I’ll be getting more in the very near future

Nicci is also having a giveaway this month to win $100 worth of buttons, all you have to do is create something, whether it be knitting, sewing or even using them as an embellishment, and
e-mail her photos and you’ll be in to win.
