Button fun

On Sunday morning, I decided to take if very easy with the kids.
We seem to be running around way too much, rushing in and out of the house to this party and that practice  and school and homework !

So after we did the latest math homework I asked if they wanted to see some buttons. Now you have to understand that I will only share some of the buttons I have with them and they were amazed to know that I have even more!  I chose the biggest tin that has the bigger buttons in them.

They has so much fun. I was great to see how they approached this task. We spoke about what is similar, how many holes some has and then started matching.
I was amazed at how good my three year old was at doing this. She can look over the sea of buttons and find two or three matches.

They both now have a jar of their own buttons next to their beds .

After we had gone through them all I realized once again that I have some buttons that will never be used, and that is Ok with me, they are really like old friends.

It's a jungle out there

I thought it might be fun to look back a bit and see how much I love animal print. I really love animal print. Snake, leopard,zebra,giraffe even cow. I love wearing animal print and I love working and creating with these prints. 
They never go out of style just come and go. You will always find someone that loves them.

Here is to working more often with these gems!

Do you have a favorite animal print?

Silk chiffon

I have been working on some silk chiffon scarfs this week and realized that they show why I love one of a kind pieces so much.
  • I love not having to sew the same piece twice
  • I love coming up with new ideas,and fresh new colour combinations
  • I love using one of a kind "finds" like these buttons and buckles .

There is a lot to be said for work that you can repeat and produce fast. But I think my love will always be with these one of pieces. Keeps me on my toes and uses up all my bits and pieces of clutter in my stash of stuff!

All pieces now available at Turtle
