Sunny inside.

 There has been some very nice weather recently, which we walked in, and then sat inside.
People are starting to come home for easter which is lovely.
We also got to meet Max's birds!

 And Max's lovely dog Gidget!

 Cola rape.

Also a very strange split sky.

A walk in the wind

 I have repeatedly been listening to 'Hi how are you' at the moment, which is very nice and ended up being all creepy and looking through pictures of Daniel Johnston, for hours... and thought I may as well put my stalking to good use!
I was also looking at Jeff Magnums ATP weekend the other day and noticed another ATP event at minehead in May, which to my delight had Daniel Johnston (written very small at the bottom of the poster, which is shameful) playing, with the likes of Built to Spill and Coco Rosie, and I nearly cried, until I noticed that next to May, it said 2010. Not impressed.

It is hard to find good drawings on the Internet, and I could not quite bare to take the poster down to scan it in case of it ripping.

 I think I would probably just put every song he ever sang up if I wasn't scared to look like a stalker, so instead THIS (you may need spotify)

It wouldn't be right if I did not find this.

 Just darling.

I really wanted to find the video of Malcolm in the Middle where Dewey and the old lady are sorting through her buttons, and Dewey puts his favourite one in his mouth to keep... and i searched and search and eventually I FOUND IT!
In Spanish...
and also YouTube would not let me download this one so I can only give a link, but it's definitely worth watching.


So, here are some print screens, as I felt sad that there was no video to have on here...
So they look through her buttons
She makes him spit it out, and is very angry.

Dewey explains the only reason he did this was because it was pretty and she agrees...

So they make a tent and talk about their imaginary friends...

What a lovely story! haha, well, you have to watch it, but it is in Spanish so unless you can understand Spanish you may get a bit lost, but then I suppose you can refer back to this.
There is a reason for everything.

The real buttons of orange county.

These bracelets are so beautiful, me being a massive dick saw them on Tavi's blog (which seems to have disapeared) and was determined to find some as they are lovely and very much go with my Mary plugs, (note - i am not in the slightest religious, I just had a bit of a thing for the pretty pretty pictures...) which I got a few years ago in a strange little shop in Portsmouth, it is a strangely good place to find plugs...

This being one of the plugs, obviously the mary one, I just could not be bothered to take another picture, so theres a few more in there for free. (I joke I joke)

But anyway, the whole point of this post, and the reason I just spent the last hour taking ridiculous pictures of buttons, but some pretty awesome ones.
So my sewing box, consists of a shelf on the top which is supposed to be for threads etc, but I keep my threads mainly in another box, in here, I keep my favourite buttons! (most of which I got given by family which belonged to my mother and aunties, which they got given by previous family members, so there is a lot to be loved about them) and then in the base of the box and my next favourites and then there is more in many other places. I know it seems utterly ridiculous to be making posts on buttons but I have no much else to do with my day.

The bulk of it.
(It is a lot deeper than the picture seems to look)

I don't know why I felt the need to justify my collection of buttons.

SO. I thought I would also take a few pictures of practical things I have made recently, first being my kindle cover... and I seem to have a massive love for this fabric and have used it for a lot recently, and am running out, which saddens me greatly.
This button... this button is lovely! I have two more of them, I probably should have saved them for a set, but it went too well with the fabric

Ipod case, which I made today...


I am not really one for silver, but these have a nice dirty silver to them which is lovely yes it is LOVELY

Possibly the cutest buttons I own, which in a way I hope to never use, just so that I never lose them.

My favourite ones, I still have not take them apart from the thread as I am so desperate to keep them as a set, a beautiful gold swirly set.

I did have one other of the Bee button but I used it on a dress I made last year, which was definitely worth it.

Yum yum yum

The twee collection

Now it is done, this post seems rather pointless, as when I was planning it in my head I had so much more to say, I am also listening to the Harry Potter audio books at the same time which is rather distracting.
But yes buttons.
