button-love



bought these seven lovely brass buttons off ebay (courtesy of someone's granny's stash). Insta-love! But....... what to do with them? They have very funky green chipped paint... help!

You need a weird-arse asymmetrical cardie! in lime green!

How strange I was about to say: green kniwear, of the cardie variety.

I think the masses are speaking... either that or Miss Baggy trousers and I are both as mad as each other.

alternately I am now getting visions of 60s/70s style dresses with calf length boots, the buttons down the front.

Come and have a look at my Craft Magazine Collection from the 1970s and I'll show you what I mean. Or just come and look and have a laugh anyway.

oooh argh not green!

then again, I'm scarred by green knitwear by my old school uniform. if it needs be green, make it an interesting sort of green. I actually thought of a rich chestnut sort of colour. it goes with your complexion better than green.

either that or replace some buttons on a jacket that you already have. there's nothing nicer than groovy buttons on a jacket.
