oh my goodness, I gasped with pleasure and delight when I saw your beautiful button photos, they are sooooo scrummy!
I can TOTally relate to the Duttons for Buttons experience (I live in York), if I were you I would remove the guilt and allow yourself to enjoy a wholehearted button passion, after all aren't buttons as inspiring as ribbons and postcards?? A marvelous retail opportunity if ever I came across one!
Make sure you let us see your finished garment with buttons attached, I do so SO love your photos.

ps the scarf you knitted for your SIL looked divine.

I love that shop too (I've been to the York one).
and buttons; the colours, the shapes, the patterns, they're perfect.
oh and small children like to play with them - my fondest memories of visiting my gran were of playing with her button box.

After just one visit to the York shop Husband number 1 will no longer allow me in the shop. He keeps finding reasons not to go past - or to go past very very quickly.
