Sometimes a plain cardi or dress can be made a bit more special with a change of buttons, wouldn't mind having a wee delve in here Virginia :)

Last time you showed tassels from here, I commented that it looked feminine and that highly masculine persons like me would not be comfortable there. I got my ears boxed. I won't make that mistake twice!

Virginia said...

Jack, so you're saying that you'd love to go in and spend the day? Good boy!

For all you button lovers, I wish you could see just how many shots I took of this wall!

Being the daughter of a dressmaker I practically grew up between boxes of buttons that looked like this. I loved them!
