why i love handmade

There's a bloke, Charlie, who lives in the USA and goes by the name of Woodturner on Etsy.

For a few years now he's been handmaking buttons for me which I attach to hats and scarves.
The buttons are divine. Perfect in every way, they are waxed and polished to a satin finish.

The best bit about Charlie's buttons is the handwritten note that accompanies each delivery, explaining a bit about the wood he's used, in this case, maple and walnut, and where those trees grew.

Thank you Charlie!

Oh they are beautiful buttons - I doubt he makes the stuff up. Sounds like a man who loves his craft, as much as you love yours.

Well I think Charlie is quite fabulous and so are those lovely buttons! x

I think that's really special, the buttons coming with a note. He's probably glad they're going out to someone who appreciates them too.

I'm quite sure he's telling you the truth. With a name like "woodturner" I'm sure he's straight up and down.

Lovely buttons!
