~ Thrift Find & Craft ~


Yesterday I found this cute vintage Staffordshire rose dish for $2. A little rough around the edges from overuse. Just the way I like it. I also bought more fabric covered buttons. Heaps of them. I have no idea what I am going to do with them all but I love the way they all look this morning on my dining room table.

  1. Hi Simone, Love the dish - roses of course. I had to laugh as you say you have no idea what to do with the fabric covered buttons. I can totally relate to that.:)
    I daresay you will re-invent their use and I cannot wait for that inspiration.
    Cheers and have great day.

  16. This is a gorgeous picture.

    I always buy things I have no idea how to use.

    However unlike you I never find a use for them.
