Button Boxes

A few months ago, I overindulged myself on some lovely little wooden button boxes. I offered them for sale on my facebook page and they all flew off the shelves in about half an hour! I'm sure, I've got more but I can't remember where I put them!





Buttons Galore!

Now here's an eBay seller after my own heart! I buy lots of buttons off eBay and generally, the photos of the buttons are either in piles, all lined up or in bags or tins. This seller has gone the extra mile - I love their ingenious way of displaying them to sell! I'm off to put a bid in...

Remembrance Day 2011

On the 11th Hour, on the 11th Day, on the 11th Month,
in the 11th Year, We Will Remember Them.
 It's Remembrance (Armistice) Day today; a memorial day observed in
Commonwealth countries to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces
and civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. 

People traditionally wear a red poppy which has now become the emblem of
Remembrance Day due to the poem, "In Flanders Fields". 
These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I,
their brilliant red colour, an appropriate symbol for the blood spilt in war.

'Buttons in the Ground'


'Buttons in the Ground' is a loss of innocence story about Lucy Calvin, a young girl
with a wild imagination in a very real and depressing world that surrounds her.
When her older sister abandons Lucy and her mother, Lucy sets to work
planting a button excitedly waiting for it to grow while her mother, Abigail,
denies that this can happen. As a sprout eventually appears, Lucy's hopes raise
while Abigail watches distantly.

'Buttons in the Ground' is a film that proves that while you're never too young
to lose your faith, you're never too old to find it.



If you are anywhere near Los Angeles on Monday 7th November 2011,
then join the team behind the new film, 'Buttons in the Ground'
at the Silent Movie Theater at 7:30P for the LA Premiere.


If you do manage to see the film, come back and let me know all about it -
it sounds fabulous and I would love to see it!
