Hop!

First off a big thank you to Tasha, who in the comments pointed out the right place for me to change the scrolling of the track pad. Things are back to normal now.

Next, everyone is on board with the hop! So clicking on the blog hop button (I made it myself, I am new to the whole button thing, one could spend a lot of time keeping up with the social media trends, but I digress (in the words of Teresa Sullivan and now I've double digressed)) anyways, back to the point which you've no doubt lost by now....the blog hop button will take you to the list of our seven participants. Each one will be giving away some excellent lovelies from their inventory.

I shifted color, well a little bit, what is with the pink? I don't know but I keep on finding pink things I want to share with you, but today there are also some orange buttons!



I love these buttons and I've included 5 so if you should knit like I do you would have enough to button up a cute neck scarf or a shrug or baby sweater (ooh, now I totally want to make a baby sweater to go with these buttons, don't worry I have more). These buttons were the original center of the Rising Sun, but they were a tad small which made them fussier to fit, possible but fussy, so I changed them out to a different button with a less fussy fit factor.



Mark is busy working on the website and soon all three Rising Suns' will be available in the store for the first time. I'll let you know. Rumor has it the cute little Birds of Paradise will be there as well.



The teal green example pictured has brass metal beads and a gold ball chain necklace. But I also love the the black and purple with cyclamen opal loch rosen.

oh, and over on Val's blog, the picture of the sparkly girly nails? Bottom left fuchsia and silver is totally me.

Marci S said...

It's not polite to drool, but that's what I'm doing:) Love pink!

Robin Kay said...

I read in the wall street journal this morning that the color of 2012 orange so perhaps there's something in the wind that made you change from pink to orange, or you're one step ahead in the color zeitgeist. Hope those buttons hop on over to my house.

Shirley said...

Oh, I'm so a button freak! Those are gorgeous! Hm, I don't knit, but I do crochet....

Beverly Herman said...

I love my Bird of Paradise. Your kits are awesome with an abundance of supplies and great illustrations. I discovered I was a button collector when we moved this summer. I am sure there isn't an orange one in the button box!

Renee G said...

What pretty buttons! Definitely not part of my usual color palette, but the words "Rising Sun" and the colors did make a few ideas pop into mind. I would love to win a prize on this blog hop with you awesome people!
