Lovely Finds

I have been doing a lot of blog and Etsy surfing lately, and I thought I would share with you a few things that are on my "Want" list at the moment...

These lovely vintage buttons from More Than Buttons on Etsy... 

Aren't they gorgeous?!  I have to confess I have a bit of a fondness for buttons, but these... these are just amazing!  The blurb on Etsy says "These buttons were made in Germany in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's. They were no longer produced since that time. All buttons are in unused condition ("new, old stock"). They are remainders of stock from an old button store." 

Next up, these beautiful crochet Apple coasters from Monika Design on Etsy.

Dont they look lovely?!  I definitely have to get some of these.  She also makes crocheted pear coasters and a very cool owl!

Now Valentines Day is coming up and I don't really agree with all the hype and commerciality of it all (is that a word?) but I totally agree with Emily of the Inside a Black Apple blog that Valentines cards should be for anytime...  Have a look at these beautiful cards available in her shop.

Hhmmm...  I hope she will be listing some more, because I can't see any in there just now...

And finally, everyone is talking about this beautiful baker's twine right now available from Whisker Graphics, here and here, oh and here you can read all the uses of the Divine Twine.  I WANT it... in every colour... ASAP.   Pretty please?

I hope you like my lovely finds as much as I do.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I love those apple coasters too (but they're on my "I could make that" list) And I like the new colors of twine as well, but I don't like the bumped-up price...

I love Valentine's day. Why? Because you'll never see that much pink, red, and hearts any other time of the year! ;)
