Button It!

I wanted to share with you my latest purchase..lovely lovely buttons. I collect wooden Russian nesting dolls so imagine my total glee when I found these beauties on a newly discovered website Textile Garden.
These Matryoshka buttons are amazingly detailed in a pewter finish and worked out at less than 55p each...bargain!

I'm hoping these little ladies will inspire me back to my lace cardi which has slipped into quiet hibernation due to a decrease mishap.

Of course my shopping basket didn't stop there..I must have a thing about buttons because when I see some cute ones I have to buy them.

Like all the unknitted yarn I seem to have..my button stash is forever growing.

Well, at least my button stash is tidy and doesn't take up too much space.

It seemed pointless just to order one set..so here's the others I bought from the same shop. I thoroughly recommend them as overall postage was only 85p!!
Lovely, lovely buttons!!

I found your blog, and then I found the buttons. Wow! I've just placed an order for the Russian dolls, as well many others. I don't know what I'll do with them, but that will come later.

Hope to see you at UK Knit Camp 2010.
