Now that Thanksgiving is past and gone, its Christmas time for real, and I can hardly stand it!  I’m a sucker for Christmas countdowns, and here is a super simple countdown you could make for your home!

IMG_8533

Start by making 24 pockets.  I outlined them in double-sided white bias tape because it curls so nicely around curved edges.

Make a strip of fabric for the binding, and paint up twenty four buttons.  I found these blank wood buttons on eBay for cheap cheap cheap.

Sew button holes in the pockets, then lay everything out on a big quilted rectangle and sew the pockets down around the outer curve.

   We used a dowel rod: painted it white and drilled holes in the ends to run a string through.IMG_8807

Then chock it full of candy and treats!IMG_8811This turned out really big–about a door’s width, so hanging on the back of a door might be a great idea for saving wall space.

You guys.  Are you in charge of an upcoming event?  Throwing a huge party?  Organizing a wedding reception?  Running for office?  Let me show you one of the sharpest ways to spread the word and share the love: Hancock Buttons!

LogoI may or may not be related to the cute couple behind this business.  I actually got to try out their goods firsthand at their own wedding reception.  I knew they’d be hot items, but I didn’t realize just how coveted these would be!  Even with a sign that said please take ONE, I saw numerous accounts of snitching going on.  They were just so cute, no one could help it!

These are classic 1″ pin-back buttons with the glossy transparent cover.

Hancock Buttons can do anything you’d like.  They can make buttons out of pictures or text that you have already created, or they can design something up for you.  Just talk to them about what you have in mind, and I’m confident they can get it just right for you.

There are SO MANY things you could make these for!  Soccer teams, clubs, community events, family reunions, class projects, holidays, birthday parties, etc. etc. etc.  We recently had a family reunion where some family members put up a HUGE stink about wearing matching t-shirts, but I think every one of them would not have minded wearing a cool button instead.

SCFI-800x410Word has it that they will be hosting a giveaway here at Dandy Giveaway in a few weeks!  Stay tuned and you might win yourself some buttons!!

Hasn’t boot season been fun?  From late September til April, they’re pretty much all I wear.  Soggy hems are not one of my favorite things.  Have you seen those boot socks that accompany fashionable boots on the street this season?  I fell in love with the look of that peek-a-boo amount of sock/warmer, and Grace & Lace carries the most stylish pairs I’ve seen!

  I think the most darling way to dress up boots are with some lace and buttons!  So feminine and flirty!  I can almost guarantee you will swoon over these fantastic boot socks and leg warmers:

il_570xN.386317874_k1g8 il_fullxfull.417338243_4zbc il_570xN.393008189_chy1 il_fullxfull.365806768_nghnil_fullxfull.417435792_45lj il_fullxfull.367051200_9o10

Don’t you want a pair of each?  I love this look this season!  Grace & Lace sent me a pair of the Lacey Ivory Boot Socks, and they are everything I dreamed they would be.  The lace on top is expertly sewn, the buttons are secure and a perfect match, and the cuff has a great amount of stretch, but it is still snug enough to stay where you put it, so these could be tall or short.

The little ruffle of lace at the top of my boots is my favorite detail of the ensemble!

IMG_2161 copy

  The most beautiful part, and maybe my favorite feature, of these is the portion inside your boots–a lovely knit of fine threads, providing an incredible amount of stretch.  I could wear these with practically any boot height, and show as much or as little lace as I wanted.  They could stretch over my knee cap if I wanted, or slouch comfortably over some ankle boots.

IMG_2162 copy

 Oh so lovely.  It’ll be hard to do the laundry fast enough to wear these as much as I want to!

One lucky girl is going to win their own pair of anything fabulous from Grace & Lace!  (Up to a $34 value)
