she has a button search on at the moment... I know that as soon as I see my mom and mother-in-law I will be raiding their sewing boxes ... and all the aunties too! lots of lovely buttons for cupcake couture and the SPCA and bonus! a corsage for all of us
but I'll let her tell you about it in her own words
Why do I want them?
Good question! You might have noticed that Cupcake Couture makes vintage inspired accessories and in order to make each one special I hunt and scrounge for vintage buttons. Besides making accessories I am also a very dedicated donor of all my left over sewing pieces....this is where the SPCA comes in.
In the past year the SPCA in Kloof, Durban has found a new home for 202 cats and 673 dogs. To allow them to continue to do this - buttons can help. This specific branch has a small sewing shop and all the buttons that I don't use will go to them to sell and make more money to help as many animals as they can in 2011. Small contribution - big happy heart!
For further details of sending the buttons (even if you are not in Durban) - please email me.
Looking forward to sharing the buttons! To show you just how much I care - each button donor (big or small) will get a Cupcake Couture ribbon rosette!
