Yes! Yes!! Its arrived all the way from America!
Well ? What do you think? I am thrilled with it - the very thing for 'Glamorous' Gardening!
Photo is not too good -well its hard taking a pic of yourself! No one around - all at work, and I did want to show you Anna's ( wonderful hat.

Button, buttons and more buttons!
I had friends to visit over the weekend - Ladysnail aka ( and Inspector Marmalade aka ( ) -take a look - up and coming illustrators! Anyway 'fiendish' button enthusiasts!!! So we got to talking and looking at my buttons - well what else on a Sunday afternoon!
This led (as it often does ) to me wondering how I could better display my buttons. For a while I have been unhappy with a tatty old lamp/lampshade that I have on the table, and I remembered seeing a magazine article and picture describing the following - so I am in the process of - having a go!!

Its a simple enough thing to do, just stick um on with PVA!

I will let you know how it turns out - its got to be prettier than the original tatty old shade!


Just thought I would share these with you, they are such a wonderful scarlet 'splash'! in the garden.
Makes a Girl happy just to see them!! - of course its raining now and spoiling them!

Remember the little Golly Tea towels? I made one up over the weekend. Isn't he a cheery little chap! So very easy to do, almost crafty instant gratification.

He is sat/stood next to my 'find' of the weekend, a little hand pleated/sewn cushion. Its made of a brushed nylon (I know it sounds awful - but truly its not!) in a kind of blend of pinks and reds - bit like that seaside rock you used to be able to get.

Lets hope the rain stops soon, and we can get back out in the garden!

Ta Ta for now!
