A buttony day

Good evening

I wonder if buttony is even a word? If its not it should be ;)

What a difference a day makes - Wednesday was gorgeous, sunny and sandal weather - Thursday has been much cooler and sandals have been put away and warmer clothes sort out.

I popped into town this morning to post some letters and of course the lure of the CS's was too strong. There's one in town that closing for a few weeks for a refit and its selling everything off at £1 or less. Today's bargain was all these buttons (and a few more) for just £1;

When I got home, the postie had been and there was a parcel for me :).  It was from my lovely mad friend Traci over at My handmadehappiness, I'd won her fabric giveaway the other week - thanks to little Finn for picking my name out :) A gorgeous (huge) piece of Michael Miller fabric and some pretty buttons too. Thanks Traci (and Finn);

I'd love to show you what I've been making this week but I can't :( Its for swaps.  Am making good progress with those, I've sent my magazine swap parcel to the USA and tomorrow I shall be sending my pincushion swap parcel to Maria @ Me and Ma tomorrow - just finished wrapping it up.

That just leaves my Pumpkin Patch Autumn/Halloween swap parcel to finish and of course my birthday giveaway mystery parcel needs a few more things added to it ;)

See you soon

I would have bought those buttons too. When I am in England my idea of a good day out is to go CSing (new word for me) with my sister. Here in Canada we call then thrift goes thrifting.

I truly think photos of thrifted buttons should be banned in blogland, due to them making me very envious indeed! I need buttons to survive!! And all those for only 1 pound?!!

I think Buttony should be a word - it is much nicer than some of the words that get into the OED each year!!!

Lovely buttons, a bargain for £1. Also that green and pink fabric is really nice.

great for one pound ! I'm working in a CS one afternoon a week & a dirty old tupperwear box came in - filled with buttons so I bought it quickly !

From a fellow button lover! I think buttony should definitely be in the dictionary!
