Buttons and Bows

"Why are you taking pictures of buttons"?  I was asked "because" I said.

 Now I know you all love buttons as much as I do, these are a few of the ones that were given to me through a collegue at school, sadly the elderly lady who had them can't see any more and asked my collegue if there was anyone she knew who might want them, only bloggers would understand my thrill when I got them home.
I have split them between my tins, the heart shaped tin is rather old now, it had Roses chocolates in it.
When my daughter was young she would sit for ages just going through the tin, she now blames me for her obsession with all things Vintage. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to have a house home thats easy to clean through lack of junk treasure. I also have a few other tins of things, one being ribbons, I can't ever throw ribbon  away even the bits off our Christmas Crackers went in the tin how sad is that?

  and last some of my lace, I do use some on my brooches almost reluctantly :)
 I feel the tablcoth come doily collection is getting a bit out of hand, but I can't stop, I buy them with the intention of unpicking the lace to use, but never do.
Do you have a problem ? go on tell,  it will make you feel better, I promise.
 And finaly
Back to reality next week half term over.
Have a good where ever you are and thanks for listening to my rambling

 Everyday is special don't waste them.

No more snow please, it's half term

At last a week off not that much will get done it's so cold out there, it does look pretty though. I popped out this morning to take a pic of the icicles on the garage, they seem to get longer every day.
I couldn't  get a picture of them all which is a shame.

A few snowy pictures for all of you having a heatwave.
Our birdbath is in there somewhere
We have been feeding the birds this morning, you can always tell when the sea is rough the seagulls come swooping into the garden like the bullies they are, grabbing all the food.
I saw this on google and it just about sums them up.
I will have to spend some of this week catching up on course work, so may not get the chance to post again, unless of course something major happens like a freak heatwave :)
I am at the moment under the duvet with a hottie and am likely to stay here for the rest of the week.
It's great a cup of tea has appeared as if by magic, I could get used to this.
Wherever you are have a lovely weekend. and hi to my new followers if I haven't said it already.
bye for now
