Last of the loot

We stopped in Liverpool on our way down south for the holidays, and I had to check out Purlesque. It's an exceedingly cute shop on top of a vintage clothing boutique - not much in the way of yarn, but oh my the buttons! Buttons are quickly become my most-stashed item.

No idea what I'm going to do with 3 kettle buttons, but I'll figure something out. Possibly as decoration on some sort of hat.

I bought these little things with the intent to make more button earrings. As I was leaving the shop, my DH pointed out that Purlesque actually sells these exact buttons made into earrings already. Great minds thing alike?

Anyway, that's the last of the "Look what I got!" posts for now. I'll have some more WIPs and maybe even an FO to show soon.

  2. I have no idea how you managed to escape from that store with only two sets of buttons, that is restraint!
