Finders Keepers…..

Market Application sent …..

Well, now it’s just wait and see ….The next Finders Keepers in Brisbane is on the weekend of 3-4 November, at the Old Museum, Brisbane …. I’m looking forward to being there.

Some pictures included with the application …..

                              photos had to show how pieces can be used

The time consuming factor is getting a good photograph to convey the essence of the piece. But I will keep trying …. maybe one day I will find the secret to a great photograph.


I dropped off some buttons and brooches to The Hub at Caboolture today. It’s a brand new complex which is excellent for showcasing the visual arts. There’s several galleries, conference rooms, workspaces and a gift shop showcasing the region and they run regular workshops as well.

Below is a little joint creative creation my hubby helped me with a display board for buttons and brooches.

I’m now the proud owner of two of these and they work via a magnetic strip under the black hessian and a small piece of magnet on the back of my brooch card.

The brooches are an extension of the buttons. I liked the idea of adding the clasp and having the textural element of the linen sewing contrasting with the porcelain.

There is really no need for the stitching, it’s purely decoration. I do make some without stitching, but I prefer the button look and feel this is unique to me.
