Ribbon

I've had a very productive day today and managed to get a lot of things checked off of my "things to do list." Which is always nice, but it means I'm a tad sleepy.
So I'm just settling down for the night but really wanted to pop by and say a quick "HELLO"
I wanted to share with you some lovely little crafty supplies that my little sister gave me last week when she came to visit. ..... Some adorable ribbon!!


I don't think it could be any cuter!


My favourite is this one with the soldiers, I think it's so sweet.


And a bag full of buttons :-) I was rather happy to receive new buttons as my supply is running short and they are sooooooo expensive here in Germany. They will definitely come in handy!


I believe she bought all of these cute gifts from The Makery Emporium in Bath. Its one of my favourite little shops from home! Thank you Hannah!!!

Anyways.... Sorry it's only a short one from me tonight. I'll be back soon!
I do hope you are all MARVELLOUS!!!!???
I need an early night tonight, so I'm off to bed :-)
Goodnight xxxx

  8. Hi Matt! Maybe you should check out Etsy for buttons! There are lovely buttons out there for less than you would pay in stores!

  12. Hello, I'm a new follower too! Really enjoyed reading some of your back posts :) I stumbled upon The Makery Emporium when I visited Bath a few years ago - more accurately, it sucked me in, like a moth to a flame! Delightful shop. (I blogged about it here: http://thehouseofjones.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/the-berts-birthday-in-bath/)
    What a thoughtful gift of the pretty buttons and ribbon, look forward to seeing what you make!
