Thanks for all the lovely comments about Theodore! I love Theresa's spin on his wonky leg...yes, I agree...Theodore is "waving"!
My town had a big second-hand market on Sunday & I found a large box of buttons for $5...some of them below. I made heaps of button pins for my pin board, which gave me the idea to use some of these wooden number discs I found about a year ago at the Camberwell Market. I'm not sure what sort of game Housie is - like Bingo perhaps? Anyway, I really like the look of them.

Your imagination can now run wild thinking of all the things you can make with those buttons !
People always ask where I had my rings from that you made me - love Julia x

Great score with the buttons! And cool idea with the tacks.

I love, love, LOVE buttons! You can NEVER ever have too many buttons! I have a huge container of them and I love to sit and run my fingers through them, enjoying the colours and their feel just like a pirate running his fingers through his treasure. Love your idea of turning some of them into push pins!
