Braid and friends

I recently bought these lovely glass buttons, and flower braid, at my local antiques 'place' www.picturehouseantiques.co.uk .

There are some beautiful old buttons there. I collect buttons, I have a tin that ranges from my grandma's buttons, to my mother's buttons and my buttons. Some I can look at and think thats off a cardigan I had when I was a little girl.

Those buttons are adorable, will Toby be using them?

Hello Carolyn, Thanks for visiting us again!
Yes, Toby does use some of his special buttons for jewellery, although he has a little treasure chest where he keeps his favourites, just to look at!
He tends to keep the more unusual vintage buttons for brooches or for the knotted style (similar to 'By the seaside'set) necklaces, or for commissions when people choose the buttons and colours themselves.
Penny.
