Congratulations Ainhoa! Send me an email with your address and I’ll get these buttons in the post ASAP…

Bonus picture from the jewellers this weekend when we were looking for wedding rings. Do you think this band looks ok with my engagement ring? I’d like to keep them both on one finger if possible…

My dress has arrived and is now with the dressmaker for safekeeping and a few adjustments. I LOVE IT. I’ve ordered a veil, bought my shoes (they’re incredible) and the bridesmaids are on the hunt for mismatched dresses. The church, venue, caterer, band and cake are all booked. I’ve found a local florist but not booked them yet (we’re only ordering bouquet and boutonnieres and I will DIY the rest with our mums). We think we’ve settled on what we’re doing for the honeymoon and hope to book it all down tonight. If anything, I’m a little worried about how easy it’s all been! Makes me feel like we’re forgetting something….

Vintage button giveaway!

vintage glass buttons 2

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’ve been spoilt rotten lately, so I thought it was time to give a little something back with my very first giveaway. (This is 100 per cent funded by me, in case that wasn’t obvious.)

Up for grabs is a lovely card of buttons, plus whatever surprises I can rustle up before I put it in the post.

These buttons are vintage 1940s Czech glass. They’re lovely and solid, yet also glassy. I think they’d look perfect on a chambray dress, like this:

 

But! If you’re not into making clothes, you could also whip up two button up pillows using this tutorial, or change the buttons on a ready-to-wear cardigan like this. Or just hoard them with your other crafting supplies!

And they could be all yours! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before midnight (GMT) next Wednesday and I’ll select a winner at random. I’m happy to post internationally and I always make my parcels pretty.
