my happy place

I took some more pictures of The Cottage and my little room here.

I redid my room. Here's the new look...




Here's the view when you're coming down from the upstairs room:


Ever wonder how many buttons I have? Uh, a whole lot...


Here's the box I made to display the button bracelets at the cottage...

I think I might make these to sell. Everyone seems to love them and it's a good way to use buttons that aren't suited for bracelets. I think I'll make frames too and maybe some other things.

This is the best button bracelet I ever made. It belongs to The Diva. I had to resew a fallen button so I had it back in my hands for a little while. Long enough to shoot this photo. Isn't it wonderful?


You might be wondering what the outside of the cottage looks like. Wonder no more, dear friend.



And here are the photos of how wonderful the cottage is looking. Get ye to the cottage!

I really want to live in the cottage! Love the decor. Especially the use of old suitcases. And I adore the dress form lamp. I need that!
