cute buttons

I found these really cute buttons while out today, i can't get a close up pic good enough to show you how nice they are. They are white with a lovely blue flower and stem on them.If you click the pic you will see them bigger.

Anyway they are that nice i bought them all which means i can spare ten of them to give away to the first button fan who emails to say they want them.Email can be found in profile.

EDIT........the buttons have been claimed, Catherine and Penny were the first to email me. I decided to give away two lots.Thanks , sorry i couldn't send you all some but if i get anymore i'll post again.

The pic is the wrong way round and i dont know how to change it, the monkey is wrapped up so will post some more pics on Thursday. Next on the list is a knitted owl.
