My word, I've taken some shocking pictures today, so apologies in advance. But I need to avoid a second guilty blogger award, so I'm posting them nevertheless, so I can say thanks in a timely fashion.

To Laurie, who had a giveaway over at Old School Acres and let us lucky winners choose any of her softies or pincushions to come and live with us. Mrs Beaver arrived today. Laurie informs me her lips are removable. I find that strangely disturbing for some reason.

And some vintage button swap deux lovelies from Ines. This was the best smelling parcel I have ever received, as the buttons came in their own teeny tiny hand knit bag on a lavender pillow. Wonderful - thank you Ines.

I love this series in different colours - so subtle.

LOL The lips were added when the beaver was done. Plus, I wasn't sure you wanted a beaver with kissy lips LOL

Great buttons - the colours are beautiful.

Love the softie but I'm also a bit disturbed by the removable beaver lips - they did give me a laugh though!!!
