I’ve gone a bit button-mad recently. I always had a big box of buttons, which originally came from my Nanna for my 11th birthday – she had a haberdashery shop in Hull. Over the years, I’ve added tons of those little plastic packets that you get off clothes, cut them off coats and bags that were being binned, and generally just threw them all the general direction of said box.
Anyway, great news for the sad little buttons, especially the ones that have been hanging around since 1993. As part of my plan to take over the baby gift world (alright, a corner will do me just nicely, thank you), I’m now offering a new product – button monograms!
Yes, it’s essentially a letter made out of buttons. This “S” I made Scarlett is particularly sentimental, because I know where most of these buttons are from, so I look at it, thinking, “that belonged to a coat I had when I lived in France”; “I loved that bag!” or “I’ve still got that top, hope a button doesn’t fall off it”. Hopefully, you’ll look at it and think it’s pretty cool too.
In breaking news, my website is now live too, so come over and have a gander: www.babybrainboutique.co.uk.
