Feb 2018 - Being 50 is just like being 49

So the 50th birthday has now been and gone and lovely it was to.  I got thoroughly spoiled by those I love.  Had a lovely weekend away at Fishmore Hall in Ludlow, it is a lovely place and well worth a visit.

Last week I spent a lovely evening with my dear friend Rick and we went to see Lady bird, it is a really heart warming, film about a relationship between mother and daughter, but without the usual cliches, go see, it will make you smile.

We are having a new kitchen put in starting next week, so if you get a call asking if we can visit, what we actually mean is, will you cook us dinner please!

Im wondering how long it will take before I need to find a bolthole..2 days max I reckon.

Last month I talked about sharing things customers have made using my buttons, and I have been lucky enough to have two customers share the things they have made.  

You can find this lady on

She used these brown football buttons on her cute cardigans, I wonder if she does adult sizes!

Then this lady gave me a sourcing mission and I am so glad she did because the button I found for her, in a different colour way to the one used here has become a fast seller already.

You can find her here

and the buttons used here are these ones.

And the button of the month are these pretty little flowers, think we are all wishing for spring!
