Buttons, Bows, and Earrings.

It has been a busy week! I am finally getting time to set up my room. Hopefully it should be done within the next week and ready for pictures, but as a sneak peak what do you ladies (and gentleman of course) think of my hair accessory 3-tiered tray? I have been making even more hair bows lately and needed something to fit all my flowers, bows and clips.

Despite not going outside due to an injured foot, I wore my new sweater today. I took several 1920's knitting patterns for inspiration and came up with this (sorry it's a bit of a dark photo, still experimenting with lighting!):

Before the foot injury, I did manage to get to my favourite antique store for the first time this term. I bought a big bag of buttons, some gloves that actually fit (!), and some clip-on earrings (which I will likely convert to something else).

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

That's All.


  1. Love the cake stand idea for storing pretty things! I've been looking for some cream cotton crochet gloves but they all seem way too small, I only have little hands so I'm wondering if they have just shrunk when washed or does anyone else have this problem?

  2. Ooh, I love your sweater! Just taken a couple of 20s knit patterns from Ravelry and you've totally inspired me to crack on with them now :)

  3. The cake stand idea is fantastic! Just right. :)

  4. @Paperdoll: I have a huge problem finding gloves that fit, but I have big hands. I half wonder if people just used to have smaller hands because my great-grandmothers wedding ring won't even fit on my little finger :( Nice to know I'm not the only person that has problems fitting into vintage gloves.

  5. That is a great looking sweater! I also have problems with gloves. My hands aren't perhaps the biggest ones, but fingers are so damn long, I even have longer fingers than most guys, so few vintage gloves suit me...

  6. Love the cake tray, what an ingenious idea for all your bows! xox
