Buttons and birthdays













We had two children's parties yesterday; pure torture. Think of a squillion wailing and noisy monsters running amok, hopped-up on candy and sugar-infested treats. Bliss.

So to chill out, I played with my vintage buttons :)





















Twisting them into wiry flowers, inspired by the bridal bouquet of last weekend. 

















(And also harvested the remaining lavender this weekend too)

Button twiddling strikes me as the perfect antidote to children's parties....... They look really good!

Yes, the buttons were rather soothing to twiddle ;) And lavender is my amazing remedy for everything! So simple, but so soothing. I can't grow it though - I kill things! I swiped mine from my father :)Hope you're all settled back in again in KTM xxx

Thank you ladies :) Yes Tal, I wasn't blogging for a while, but I still have stuff to blather on about, so you have to listen to me again! I've stacked the lavender together and put it on display but I might make a little sleep cushion with it. Lentils were AWESOME! Didn't use a spurtle to stir them though...xxx
