NEW BEST BUTTON FRIEND

people can be so kind

i got talking to clifford... a regular at the post office
(an antiques ebayer)

we discussed a mutual love of kirsty allsopp
+ the joy of old buttons

so imagine my delight when he brought me this
cute tin full of oddments...how to make a girl happy!

(i started sorting through them + loving these glass ones)

what a lovely gift, and what a nice man.

I often think that Kirsty is the kind of person I'd like to have round for dinner, she has a fantastic collection of coats, that I might be able to borrow too! :)

We share a love of Kirsty, I want her shoe and skirt collection. Wow a man who loves Barbara too! I think perhaps Clifford is not married if you know what I mean wink wink ;) xxx
