 It's cold outside so I've been going on
 a photo spree today.
Buttons. 
White and cream crockery.
Just some of the things I look out for 
when shopping at charity stores.
I once found a small jar full of white buttons of all shapes
and sizes, and when asking the lady behind the counter if
I could buy the entire jar, she looked at me as if I were odd.
I didn't reveal to her how fine they look as decoration.
I'm still looking for
vintage buttons...
and of course, cream porcelain to display the collection on.
I added a couple of Ishka swing tags ,
i rather like the designs on certain retail store tags-
they are works of art in their own right.
Even my daughters little plastic white cat sneaked
in the display somehow!
Beautiful.








Time to light a candle indoors.
The flame brings spirit into the home,
while I sit and have a morning tea break in 
my cosy corner.......
then it's time to take more photos.

 


Mrs Tiggywinkle sits on my mantelpiece with a wooden
jigsaw puzzle dated 1979. Mrs Tiggywinkle is handmade by
myself and I have made a few other characters from the
Tales of Beatrix Potter....
she is one of my favorite children's book
illustrators.
Her main achievemnet I believe is 
The Tailor Of Gloucester.





 

Such a cold autumn day out today,
took some quick photos from the backyard
of our majestic gum tree, and then it was back inside....
my clothes damp from the rain but enjoying it just the same.
