My Kind of Place - Buttons & Bows





And this will shock you....

This is all I bought. Six adorable monkey buttons. Oh my gosh, how cute are these guys? Would it be weird to use monkey buttons on monkeys? hmmm

Believe it or not, this shop just has too much to choose from. There is a whole wall of buttons, heaven. And the back wall is all lined with spools of gorgeous ribbons. The shop is called Buttons & Bows and it's in downtown San Anselmo, the next town over from where we live in San Rafael. It's run by a very nice woman who didn't mind me photographing her store for my blog, very helpful indeed. I think I'll go back today after the knitting class. I didn't want to make the wrong choice, so I decided to go home & take a look at my stash to decide what I should get. Not sure Nick will like this shop as much as I do, but there's a hobby shop down the road.
