Hi Andrea

I think the buttons look great in the frame, is that an original idea? Very clever.
I love that white vase with the hydraenga's and rinunculas ('scuse the spelling!!). I am so sick of palms and gum trees...I want flowers in my garden!!!
Sorry about that micro vent, just get a bit frustrated at times,lol

Love all of you old buttons & frames. The buttons remind me of my mums old sewing basket & all of the goodies that used to be in it.
