Button Candy


I took a trip into Dublin yesterday to dig around the charity shops and stock up on some buttons at Rubanesque and the woolen mills. Aren't they gorgeous! I can't wait to use them in my next batch of bloom brooches. I got eight really gorgeous little tops, all practically new for less than a fiver each, some of them still had their original shop tags on! Oh you can't beat a bit of guilt free shopping - I highly recommend it recessionista's! ;)*

Hey Fiona, how are you ?
Great finds you've got there! I was wondering if you go often to Rubanesque?
because i forgot to buy a very special striped ribbon before leaving Eire... If you happen to go back, do you mind buying some for me (of course, i'll pay you for the ribbon + shipping to switz).
Thanks ♥ Kisses from Switzerland
