Spent New Year's eve in Devon, in a cottage upon a hill. Higher up the hill, after a long and cold walk, we found a winter wonderland.
Dozens of small birds took off in flight as we approached. It was fortunate I had completed my warm winter hat! Silk and mohair with an added button in blue and gold.
Remember the buttons I got for my birthday? Yesterday, I rummaged through a button box in a bric a brac shop in Islington (Past Caring, it is called and can be found on Essex Road), and I found a little stash of vintage glass beads that just begged to be teamed up with one of the buttons. So, here is a dash of spring colour to brighten the snowy/slushy gloom outside.
