Sunday, I've got buttons on my mind...

Last week I my lovely man had a day off so of course I wagged work to spend the day with him, strolling around the wintery Melbourne city. Eating, drinking, shopping & exploring.
We had breakfast at one of our favourite little cafes in Central Place and looked around the shops.
All the usual ones... T2, Alannah Hill, Anton's, Lush and the rest.
I wanted to take a look at Buttonmania, as I havn't been there before.
(Every single time I have visited the shop it's been closed! no luck).
But on this day it was open. It was so busy that I didn't really get to have a good look though.
But it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, I was hovering around the front of the shop & happened to stumble upon another little shop in the same building.

What a pretty little shop. I picked up some lovely buttons, thread and a belt buckle...
I also grabbed some vintage threads- Olive green nylon & black cotton. They work on the Pfaff like a dream.... ahhh...

Also... The woman behind the counter was so lovely & helpful. Thank you!
I recommend that everybody nearby check it out. There was way too many buttons to choose from so I just took a lucky dip.  

Does anybody have any ideas of what to make with these beauties?
I need something that will show them off :-)

Hope you all had a great week.
What is everybody sewing?
I've got a few things on the go, and a new Beignet to show you all!
If only it would stop raining...

Tally ho!
