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.
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!
