In this post I briefly discussed what I would do I if were a billionaire. Well, after reading many responses to this meme on other blogs, my list expanded greatly. One more thing that I can add for certain, lots and lots of shopping on Etsy! I would sit and order absolutely everything from every shop in my favorites.
It would be brilliant :0)
I’ve shown you buttons I’ve purchased from etsy before, which ironically are the only new buttons I’ve gotten around to using. So when I found myself in need of new blue buttons I headed straight there. So, I was lurking around, trying to find something suitable for Lush and Lacy, the Super Girl blue edition when I stumbled across these

Never mind the fact that these are not really a match for that particular shade of blue. I had to have them.

Later that evening while knitting, and feeling really pleased with my purchases, I became annoyed with my split stitch markers. The working yarn kept getting caught in them. Given that I was working with a very splitty yarn this was particularly annoying. I headed back to etsy and found exactly what I was looking for (how often does that happen?)! After a funny little exchange with the shop owner I received these beauties in my mailbox. I may never use another type of stitch marker again.
