Good morning my lovelies! Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to delve into their fabulous button stash to share a few delicious pictures as part on my wee Pretty Peggy Garland pdf giveaway! All your collections are quite fabulous indeed and I have been perusing them with much jealousy and even a tiny bit of drooling! So without further ado and in no particular order, here are the three winners and my reasons for choosing them...
Laura of nimble fingers and steady eyebrows (I so love her blog title, don't you... !?) ~ Laura shared a picture of a very special tin of buttons on her blog and wrote... "As you know, I love buttons and I have quite a number of receptacles full of them in my craft space. These are my most precious buttons though. My Granny doesn't sew but she is a thrifty Yorkshirewoman and has saved spare buttons over the years. She kept them in an old tobacco tin of my Grandad's. When she moved house, she gave them to me and I love them for the tiny pieces of family history that they are. My favourite is the yellow sunshine button- I'm waiting for just the right project to use it..." I smiled a huge happy smile for Laura when I read this... :)
Vivienne of Green Rabbit Designs ~ Lovely Vivienne has inherited a gorgeous collection of her mother's buttons including one from her wedding dress (dating back to 1944!) and a very yummy flowery teal one that instantly caught my eye! She has also arranged them so beautifully in her Flickr picture here.
HoffiCoffi ~ Really I think the winner here should be Mr HoffiCoffi, for making a very special cycle trip just to buy this huge stash of buttons for his lovely lady, but I am sure that if I sent the prize to him he would then gift it to his lovely lady anyway! Thank you to Mrs HoffiCoffi for sharing such a fabulous find, I dream of the day I will happen across a Quality Street (or maybe even a Roses) tin that is full to bursting of fabulous buttons and rummaging through them to see what treasures lie within. Although there would be no pondering from this button hoarder, I would grab that tin with both hands and not let go!
Congratulations lovely ladies! I have left you all a wee note, please do get in touch with me and I will send your wee prize right away!
Wishing you all a fabulous button filled day,
