Shades of the Sea - Buttons Galore

Blue is my Favourite colour, it always has been. I Love the Blues of the Sea, especially Turquoise, as well as shades of Sea Green with a touch of Purple... I also Love Buttons and I know it is a cliché but my Grandmother really did have a Box of Buttons. I have collected many Buttons over the years, I still have buttons from my Nurse's uniform and Hubby's Police uniform from when we first met over thirty years ago. As well as the colours, I love the feel of them running thru my fingers, like sand on a Beach.

Over the past couple of years, since I started up my page Blue Anchor Bay on Facebook, I have learned how to make Necklaces and Bracelets from Buttons. I Love making them to match different outfits. I have also sold many online, at Fairs and in a shop on the Isle of Wight!..... They have proved very popular. I  decided to make a New Collection now that Autumn is here and I have more free time. I had a Wonderful Summer, out & about, but now I will be spending more time at Home. 

Usually in the Autumn, and run up to the Christmas period, I change my colour scheme to suit the Season. Last year I had a Red & White Scandi theme. This year I have decided to stay with my Beautiful Sea Blues & Greens with a touch of Purple! I am even thinking of using this colour scheme when decorating the house for Christmas!....

My Birthday is in December....21st to be precise. I am not a fan of Christmas, especially when it overshadows my Birthday!....So whilst you are all planning your C Lists and buying Handmade Presents please remember your Friends, Family & Loved ones who also have Birthdays at that time of year!

A present is not just for xmas, it is something to be enjoyed all year round and that includes the Summer!... My Lovingly Handmade Button Necklaces and Bracelets would make Perfect Presents. Please note, my Button Collection is made up of new, used, recycled and vintage buttons, all mixed together.  The necklaces and bracelets all come Giftwrapped in Tissue Paper and are easy to wrap and post. I always use new, handwritten envelopes. If you are posting abroad, please do so in plenty time!....
