It has been a long time since my last post. Paul and I have been busy making home and have just celebrated our first wedding anniversary back at the beautiful George in Rye.
I have also been very busy designing a new range of stationary, for weddings and other occasions. These unique designs are just the first in a number of additions soon to be added to the Hearts and Buttons online store. Service will include personalising with names and other details, printing and a proof copy in advance.
We believe in offering delicate and fun designs to enhance your special event.
Whether shouting from the roof tops or celebrating in elegance these designs are bound to capture your friends and families attention.
With more designs on the way we hope you love our designs as much as we do.

As the evenings close in, it is dark at 5:00 and a warm cup of tea and a night in your PJs is more tempting than a night on the town. The savior of the crafty women is back to boost our spirits and get some vintage craftiness back in our homes.
The ever bubbly Kirsty Allsopps Vintage home series, Channel 4, Thursdays 8pm follows home owners in need of a little helping hand. Kirsty brings together some best of british crafters to support those in a house proud crisis revamp and reorganise their homes. The twist this year is vintage influences, beautiful references to past taste and historical design and a homemade shop in London as the centre of all things Allsopp goodness ( I want in on that one).
I myself am proud to be an artist and crafts person but can understand the rutt you can get stuck in after a hard day at work or when things become over bearing. I have jumped for joy after every episode, dragging the husband around flea markets and heading for my sew basket.
I have been inspired to return to screen printing a process I teach to children in my role as an art teacher and that featured on the first episode as a way of updating beautiful furniture. Although my first return proved not as exciting as I had hoped, rushed and a little messy, some applique and buttons will jazz it up nicely and make a beautiful addition for my spare bedroom.
We may not all have the gorgeous wardrobe of Allsopp, a beautiful shop in an arty and bohemium part of London or the funds to completely revamp our homes but the weekly glow of warm crafty lovliness that this program brings will offer ideas and if nothing else the want to try new things and make your own. As well as champion the imagination and creativeness of us Brits.
Thank you Channel 4, Kirstie Allsopp and British craftsmen and women, you have bought a little inspiration to these chilly winter eves.

On what worked out to be the last decent day of the summer, the cream of vintage suppliers met once more for Belles Vintage Wedding fair.
This time Hearts and Buttons too had a stall at this beautiful Brighton event advertising our wedding styling services.
Not only were there a brilliant mixture of stalls, services and suppliers but also a fun and energetic atmosphere created by entertainers such as wedding singer Johnny Zero, and The Doo Wop Dolls .
Greeted by the " Belle" Sussex Love Bugs Beetle, after paying a very reasonable £3:00 entry and recieving a complimentary galss of sparkly couples were greeted by an array of vintage wedding dress suppliers. Dita Florita selling her range of vintage dresses had a style to suit all, with unique details and charm.
Inside the hall guests were dazzled with fantastic floral displays, scrumptous cakes and beautiful decorative details from accesories to stationary.
Friends of Hearts and Buttons Wren Flowers had a beautiful stall, styled for the season, it was great catching up with the whole team and able to see more of their beautiful arrangements
Love Sussex Weddings was there with their website offering couples great reallife weddings and blogging the event, with great photos from PhotoMadly
It was so exciting seeing The George in Rye at Belles, the beautiful venue ( where I myself got married) fit perfectly amongst the vintage treasure on display, their venue offering intimacy, glamour and sussex history.
And even though the sun shone outside crowds swarmed and engaged in a vintage world beyond the beach, beer gardens and public lawns.
So with the wedding fair season well and truelly underway, Belles vintage fair offered everything for those seeking vintage glamour and quality and what is even more exciting is there it is not long until Belles Bridal Bazaar offers an even more diverse range of local suppliers and service to help you with your day, and yes Hearts and Button will see you there, can't wait for more fun and frolics in a truelly vintage way. 20th October Unitarian Church Brighton.
