Mandarin Duck, Tiny Cardigan and Pearl Buttons

1   This lovely little model of a Mandarin Duck was made by our youngest daughter many, many years ago for her Dad. It has been treasured ever since.

2    I have finished the tiny cardigan for our Grand-baby due in April. It has some very special buttons on it.

Tiny cardigan, 20 cms from top to bottom

3   These buttons are part of a collection that I have inherited. My Grandfather was a button salesman in and around Manchester and these are his sample cards which have been used gradually over the years. It really pleases me to think that the new baby will be wearing a cardigan with buttons belonging to her/his Great Great Grandfather!

Very precious Mother-of-pearl buttons
