I was recently complaining to my mum that I did not have any more nice buttons to put on the pin cushions I had been making.
This weekend my mum and I went to a second hand shop that has lots and lots of individual stalls. Some stalls have junk, some have antiques and some just have interesting items.
We found a few little treasures. I was particularly looking for buttons.
I found some. A large glass vase full (see picture bellow). Mum and I sorted them out. I can no longer complain that I have no buttons!
