Buttons and Bows

I love buttons and ribbon. They're essential to have around the house. I use ribbon all the time to wrap around presents - it's adds that special touch. I'm lucky to have Beresfords Ribbon Factory nearby by. Every now and again they have a public sale day and just like my yarn addiction, I always come back laden with bags of ribbon. I'm slowly working my way through it all!!

Buttons are another addiction of mine. I'm not sure what the attraction is with buttons, but my nan and my mum always had a button tin too. I used to love tipping them out and sorting them into colours. Now I have my very own button jar that my little boy loves playing with.

So my folksy friday theme this week is buttons and bows - here are my folksy fave's - just hover your mouse over the picture to see the designer and click to go to their folksy shop (don't forget to hit the back button to come back to my blog):
