One of things that gives me lots of pleasure is playing with my button collection. I found some lovely ones yesterday whilst out thrift shopping, but you will have to wait until my next post to see those. I like to play around with different combinations until an idea pops into my head. I made these little brooches, with scraps of vintage Australian pure wool blankets, tiny pieces of doily and embroidery thread. Things have been getting busier in Winter Owls Shop with the holiday season on its way, and my day job of course, so I’m sorry if I haven’t popped in to visit your blog lately. but I hope to see what you’ve all been up to very soon.
