Hello there lovely Buttoneers! Where is the summer? Have you stolen it? I don’t know about you but I think the sunshine has emigrated to a hotter climate and left us to spend the rest of our days in gloomy, grey cloudy skies. What is the weather like where you are in the world? Ready to see a Daisy in the Sunshine?
I am just popping in with a quick post to share some fabulous photographs that a very happy customer of mine shared with me. I am so super excited that one of my little doses of handmade goodness is living a very happy life.
I love seeing my handmade pieces in loving homes or enjoying the sunshine in the big wide world – what more could I want for my little lovelies!?
Well, my last daisy brooch in stock got snapped up from the Eliston Button Etsy Shop recently (I now only have one of each brooch in the shop – Just in case you had your eye on one!) and I was, as always, a little sad to see her leave as she looked so pretty all packaged up in pink and ribbons.
I knew she needed to go out on her own and explore the world – They grow up so fast don’t they!?
Do you remember when I shared the story ‘Custom Orders and Creative Imagination’ back in February where my lovely customer had used my French knitted flower hair grips as really gorgeous curtain tie-backs? Well, this time around my lovely customer sent me photographs of my Daisy Daisy embroidered felt brooch whilst she was on holiday and I just loved how she had used the brooch…
Isn’t it great!? I would have never thought to pin a brooch onto a straw hat to decorate it! How gorgeous does the softness of the felt look against the harder weave of the straw hat!? I was so excited when she sent me these amazing photographs that I let out a little squeal of delight…
I always love to see how you lovely Buttoneers use or display my handmade work – It fills me with so much pride.
It is so great to see them all living up to their full potential and I always feel so proud – like my babies have go out into the world and done me proud! Bless ’em!
The photographs she sent me were so beautiful. I particularly love how the crisp white petals stand out against the blue beach towel and against the deep blue hues of the ocean in the background. I am rather jealous of my little brooch going on such a fabulous adventure!
*Swoon* I could stare at them all day, the colours are so dreamy!
It really is like they were a match made in heaven and I am so in awe of the creative imagination my customer had to spot my brooch and pair it with her straw summer hat in her mind. If I sit and stare at them enough I can almost imagine the sun shining down on me, my face cool and shaded by the brim of the hat…
…If I really listen hard enough I can almost hear the crash of the waves against the shore…ahhh….bliss…
A huge thank you to my lovely customer for sharing these photographs with me and just as importantly for letting me share them with all of you guys. If you own a little slice of Eliston Button handmade goodness, I would love to see your photographs – It is so fascinating to see them out in the wild!
Don’t forget to grab a cup of tea and explore the Eliston Button Etsy Shop – I have had a bit of a reshuffle and some of my prices have even lowered to make way for new ideas and new stock in the future ! Hooray!
What do you think of attaching a brooch to decorate a hat? What wold you pin one of my embroidered felt flower brooches to? Which brooch in my hop is your favourite? Would you like to see something different in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop? I would love to hear all about it!
Until next time, meet me for a chat with a cup of tea in the comments below. I’ll click the kettle on!
