Ah, don't you just love the nostalgia of old wooden toggle buttons - they immediately conjure up images of soggy school dufflecoats, big comfy woollie cardigans, etc. I found a few of these in the old family button tin,and thought it was the perfect closure for a new 'tweedie' item I was working on this week - it just seems to look 'right' against the Harris Tweed, perfect bed-fellows
The 'hairy' piece of string in the photo is part of a new handmade gift-tag I've been making/using recently - I like the 'handmade' touch it adds to my items:
This post could go on forever as I've been quite busy making, listing, etc this week - for once I've kept to my word and stocked up my Big Cartel shop and added some tweedie buttons to my Etsy shop! However, it's school holiday time and I'm trying to cut back on computer time, etc. Here's some pics from last Saturday at the Tall Ships in Stornoway - we caught sight of them as they were leaving the harbour - they looked lovely on such a warm sunny day, very picturesque!
Ahoy, me hearties! . . . or something like that, hehe!
Here's some 'tweedie' buttons, just to finish of this NOT brief post - ooops!
. . . and here's some more creative peeps over on the starboard side, hehe!
(So much for cutting back on my computer time LOL!! x)
