8 Weeks to go...

Christmas will soon be fast approaching. In the shops the Halloween items are swiftly being replaced with Christmas goodies and soon the town centres will be switching on their Christmas lights. 

Here at Buttercup Boutique some new little bird decorations have been in the making for a little while. So far in my Folksy shop there a few little appliqué birds in lovely festive fabrics with ribbon loops, perfect for a woodland, folky Christmas tree!

Still here!

I thought it was about time to resurrect my blog! It's been a long time since my last post but Buttercup Boutique is still going strong in Folksy land. My little owls are still my best selling item, they are entirely hand stitched and after having sold nearly 200 brooches and key rings I still love every stitch that goes in to making them!

As always I am willing to accept custom orders, please do get in touch via my Folksy shop if you require a particular colour making up, take a look through my sold items for ideas maybe!

Also as we are nearing the end of the school year, I would like to give a little shout out to my apples!
These cute little apples can be made in red or green as brooches or keyrings, they are great little gifts for a favourite teacher and are priced at £6.00 + postage. I am currently taking orders for these so please let me know if you require any.

Promise to be back sooner next time!!

Just under a week to go! I still have some handmade heart and valentine owl brooches available in a variety of colours and fabrics. The brooches would make lovely gifts and look great attached to a jacket or cardigan or even to brighten up a plain bag! Here are a few examples, please take a look in my Folksy shop for more info!
