So... with that situation in front of me I could see an opportunity for a simple knitting project.
I hear you asking where those gorgeous buttons came from? They weren't my original choice but instead the choice of my daughter. She was thrilled when she found them, she came up to me and told me very clearly we had to get these "love heart buttons" so that we could "send Jane love" - how could I resist...
So here it is, hanging in it's rightful spot, my sister's kitchen, ready for use.
