Have a look at the buttons - these were strung together, but of course they're quite different. I like both types, though. The flowery one will go very well with the collection I brought over from my mum's. I still don't know how I'm going to display them...Snazzy, almost hat-shaped buttons. 1950s, perhaps? 1930s? What do you think? And some MOP, of course...Here's the base of that jug.
And here's the other side. Unfortunately, our wild roses have gone over now, because they'd look great in this jug!
And finally, I got some shabby patchwork seat cushions for our outdoor chairs. Comfortable bottoms all round at lunch time!Meanwhile, Son 1 and Ben have been extremely active, firstly planting out four tomato plants, which Son 1 must water, which he can then eat from any time he wants! (He tends to graze on our tomato plants, so we're protecting our own harvest by doing this.)
They then went on to lay out our exciting second hand swimming pool, and prepare the gravelled area for the pool to be set up. They're currently out buying sand to make the area properly flat, and they THINK they may have the pool up by tomorrow evening! That depends on how long we all spend at our own town's Vide Greniers tomorrow, perhaps...
