I thought I would quickly share with you all the places you can find me!
My most favourite place to hang out is Instagram. You can find me there at @sewinthegarden and @buttonsinthegarden

Sew in the Garden is my main account with lots of sewing photos and loads of colourfulness. 

sewing and colourful adventures

Buttons in the Garden is where I show off all the amazing buttons that I sell over on Facebook. Facebook makes it extremely hard for small pages to get seen so if you have any button loving friends please feel free to tell them about my page.

I also love Pinterest! I have lots of inspirational boards, from home ideas to quotes for handmade cards to crafting goals. I do find it very addictive once you start pinning!

And of course here on my blog you can read all about my sewing with a little bit of vegetable growing over the summer months!

Please pop over and say hello and let me know I can find you!

Buttons in the Garden

Sew… My names Georgina and I am addicted to buttons! I don’t know what it is about them but I could just look at my button collection all day long, they are so mesmerising. The different colours and shapes and sizes and materials means that I can happily spend hours sorting and organising and resorting and reorganising them.

My collection isn’t made up of expensive antique buttons but just ones I have collected over the years. 

I do have my great grandmas buttons which I have kept separate. Unfortunately they are no longer in the original tin as I’m forever changing how I organise them. They are in a Cath Kidston button bag at the moment, however I keep meaning to see if I have a tin, I used to collect them when I was a child, to put them in as the bag isn’t really big enough.

The rest of my buttons are currently arranged by colour in a very unexciting plastic storage box. I don’t use these button for anything other than staring at!

In this container are the ones I use for crafting. I make lots of cards with them which I sell in a little local cafe, Chiff Chaff Cafe, and to use myself rather than buying them. I have also has a go at free motion embroidery and added them to this picture I made for my mum.

Because of my love of buttons I have opened up a little button shop over on Facebook called Buttons in the Garden. I also have an Instagram page just for buttons @buttonsinthegarden. If you love buttons please come and have a look and feel free to spread the word to any other button lovers you know! 

I would love to see your button collections and what you use them for so please tag me in them @buttonsinthegarden.

Happy Button Collecting.
