Three customers bought my button jewellery just whilst i was dropping more off! Fantastic! So i really am mighty busy this week. Im also re vamping my etsy shop. Im having a HUGE sale of both fimo and button jewellery to make way for the new stuff! Im also Re photographing everything in etsy so it matches folksy. I love the wooden backdrop i have in my folksy shots. Im also designing new xmas lines! I know its june but a girls gotta get ready! so lots and lots and lots!

I have been working really hard the last few days to keep up with my orders at Strawberry Blue, commissions, and bits for folksy. Today I finally opened my folksy shop yahoooo! I only have a few bits on but there will be more added in the next few days. My art room looks like a button bomb has hit it! I have had many tea breaks and I'm now off to clean up the mess i have created before my cats start eating the buttons from the carpet! Please take a look at www.folksy.com/shops/realicoul let me know what you think! I will be having a competition to win a piece of button jewellery as soon as i have over 20 followers, so get following and relish in the thoughts of winning some bright and beautiful button jewellery!
Im currently loving my new super chunky super bright super beautiful button necklace! currently up for sale at folksy for £22.00.
Think ill have another bru before i start de buttoning the carpet!

Well this weekend i have been busy! I have taken advantage of the lovely weather we have been having and have been out planting and pottering around the garden. We spotted our first guest frog on Friday! I have taken a photo of her in my pond sat in the shallows with the taddies.
I also caught CoCo Smelling the french lavender...
And the bumble bees are here! They are totally loving my Lavender and citrus thyme!

This is Ninja and Coco Chanel mademoiselle my two adorable cats. They spend their days sleeping on the windowsill next to my desk. They don't mind listening to my music whilst I'm working but they do sometimes attempt to eat the buttons if i drop them whilst working :/ I had a little daydream the other day about how great it would be if cats could dance. I would totally love it if Ninja started busting moves to jurrasic5.

I have recently just moved house and I'm still trying to squeeze all my art stuff into my small studio/computer/spare room! Until I put some shelves up all my button jars are precariously balancing on top of one another. But as unpractical as this is they do make my desk look pretty :)

Wow I have just received these amazing "New but Old" buttons in the post today! There all vintage and some of the most beautiful buttons i have ever seen. They even have the vintage whiff :)
I have already picked out my favorites to frame in my mini art gallery (my stairway) which include some beautifully calved, pearly, and stone ones. So i thought id share these lovelies with you guys. I have already started some necklaces and bracelets. Its quite bad that want to keep them all for myself!
