A little while back I received a call from someone who had old buttons to part with ~my favourite kind of call. She also had these cigarette silks from Germany.
I have been looking for little signs of green here and there but they are still surrounded by mud and the grim soil of winter so I thought these tiny, colourful, and botanically correct pieces of art would be nicer to look at. I know you can buy variegated threads now but had no idea they were available years ago, so I've included them in this shot of spring colour.
For a complete escape to another world where everything sparkles and shimmers, check out Basia Zarzycka's site. Under her profile is a little clip from an interview inside her shop. Wow!
