Stuffed with wheat, perfect to keep those doors open, or shut, and appropriately named as Tispy, Perky, Quirky, Apache and Roastie!

Buttons for raspberries???

Today was a great day for me, but not for my husband....

When attempting to sell his freshly picked homegrown raspberries to one of our neighbours, she promptly gave him bags of buttons "for his wife", and then he didn't feel he could ask for money for the raspberries!!!

Seems a fair swap to me!!

I just had to have a play with the mountain of fabrics now filling our attic, so an old Edwardian "throne" has had a bit of a revamp!

A little morceau of fabric...

Just treated myself to a little bit of fabric to play with and make pretty things. I feel like a kid in a sweetie shop!
Great what you can find on eBay!
