Eye Spy... a new development

I now have a staple gun.
It is quite a lot of fun.

I sewed a bunch of vintage buttons to the dark denim and covered a canvas using my new staple gun. It is a new development in craft for me, and I am dreaming of recovering my office chairs with some funky op shop fabric.

The tea cup is actually a GIANT tea cup (with a drainage hole, so not quite so useful for drinking giant cups of tea, but quite useful for planting a pretty in it). It was my farewell present from work. I love it. And I love tea as well. White with none. Sweet enough and all that.

Thank you Christina for the theme and thank you to Cindy for hosting!

UPDATED TO ADD: I just realised I should clarify that the button canvas was an idea from one of the articles about someone's house in Real Living magazine. I can't remember which issue of course. I did not come up with this idea by myself!

Now that's a very cool development. A staple gun is extremely handy indeed. The canvas looks fantastic.

Never had a staple gun but it does sound like a lot of fun.
