Spring has sprung...

... well maybe not in wet and rainy Cape Town but from many reports it has in the Northern hemisphere. I believe London in particular is enjoying lovely weather today. Rather fitting then that we have 2 new sets of tiny sheep buttons to show you.

Yesterday my sister, who is exhibiting at the Country Living Fair and has been unable to publish to the blog, gave me the pin and password for the company blog. Needless to say I am having a great time (you may have noticed the new design already ;-)

Then at about the same time as the blog responsibility was handed over something cool arrived in the post. Yesterday my 3 year old son, who regularly checks our post box for letters, proudly handed me a small parcel marked "New teeny tiny buttons" ... well I could go on about how excited we were to open the parcel etc but I would rather skip right to a photograph or two. So here goes...


Sorry I couldnt find a ruler with inches but to make it easier 2.5 cm (25mm) is 1 inch.


How cute are these new wooly sheep. And super tiny too. I can just picture a country quilt embellished with these beautiful little buttons.


Pictured alongside everyday objects like a memory stick or a small pencil sharpener really gives a good idea of scale.


Forgive me if I am biased in asking but "How beautiful are these new Incomparable buttons?" A celebration of spring.

Congratulations to the following people who have all been notified by email:

Rebecca: L249 (Cars) and L423 (Cupcakes) are my favorite! What beautiful buttons with a great purpose behind them!

Ronnie: I love buttons!! My favorites are L116 hedgehogs (so cute), L423 cupcakes, L441 moose and L154 (cow or hippo, can’t tell which).

Jenn Vallimont: Wow – I surely know where I’ll get buttons in the future. What a beautiful display. Some of my favorites included L296 (page 8), L373 (page 10), and L484 (page 12). Thanks for sharing this wonderful resource with us!

Barb Colvin: Such a talented group of lovely ladies! There are so many that I like–especially L70 mixed ocean, L282 leaves and L546 birds. Hope I can find an online store that carries them since none do here in Spokane, WA.

Stephanie Bowen: What a wonderful opportunity for these ladies to be able to provide for their families! Handmade anything requires a lot of work and dedication. As to which ones I like best, can’t I just say I like them ALL? Okay, okay…how about L18, L106, L225 and L358. Thanks for the chance to win some of these little gems!


Oddbjørg: So many different and cute buttons! It’s almost impossible to choose a favourite…… but let me say L17, L109 and L427.
Thanks for a chance to win!

Jennifer: I love the tiny birds, L546. And the cats, L32. And so many of the flower ones that I can’t decide! I’m bookmarking this site for sure.

Susan Chase: Just one of things I can not pass up buttons especially ones as beautiful as these. I love L5, L444, L490. Besides some art projects I would love some of the larger ones on a jacket or blouse. Thank you for the chance.

Marie: The buttons are incredible–my favorites are L203, L231, and the tiny ones L530, 546. Thanks for the chance to win some.

Kim Jamieson-Hirst: My favourites are L26 and L118. Hard to just choose a couple as they’re all very cute and I already own several of them. Thanks for the opportunity to win some buttons.


Thank you to Michele for running this give-away for us. 

To all those who commented - thank you for taking the time to look at all of our buttons and for the kind and encouraging words. There will be other chances to win so keep an eye on our blog for details.

Which Came First...?


Here the Incomparable chickens and egg buttons change a plain apron into something quite fun.

They've transformed my jersey too...



the jersey's looking a little the worse for wear because it's been through the wash many times...the chickens are still going strong!

Fall in Love with Our Incomparable Hearts



I got married recently (on the 1st of the 1st this year) and used our Incomparable hearts to add flair to our place settings.

I cut out old fashioned luggage tags and attached a heart with some gold twine and green ribbon.

They were placed with fresh roses on the tables.




And now that I'm learning how to sew, I'm looking forward to using them in other applications as well!

p.s. I'll announce the winners of our first giveaway tomorrow.
p.ps. We're going to have another giveaway next week because its just proved to be too much fun to give our buttons away (I'm hoping my boss won't read that!)

Birds on a Wire - Free Stitch Pattern


Recently while we were in the plane on our way to a consumer show in Paris, Jen created this ultra-cute stitch pattern of a vintage bicycle leaning against a washing line pole. Meanwhile a chicken shares his lunch with one of our teeny tiny red birds.

This free pattern will be posted and downloadable soon as will the next one Jen is busy with...cupcakes and more.

Keep a look out for them...and for the names of the winners of our first button giveaway which we will be announcing in the next day or two.
