my creative space...

I've been collecting vintage buttons for a while now, but I have an awful trouble using them. Instead, I have made a vintage button sampler. I've sewn them onto a piece of linen & now I shall find a shadowbox frame to display them in.
I'm gradually moving all my crafty things into a huge studio & this will hang upon the wall in there. I can't wait to have my new space, the plan is slowly forming in my head as to where everything is going to go. So very exciting.
In my other creative space, aka: the kitchen, I whipped up these chewy coconut cakes for mother's group. Quick & delicious & very moreish.

I have a problem with buttoms too, and am also beginning one with vintage linen also. Space is going to become a problem.

I love that idea. I have a little box full of my nana's old buttons and had no idea what to do with them. BINGO!
