I love buttons!

 I love these kinds of buttons

And I love these kinds of buttons

 And I especially love THIS kind of button

Yes cake crumbs & beach sand now has its very own special button! Feel free to grab it if you like. If not, that’s ok too.
I also got my hands on some pretty social media icons courtesy of the lovely Emily over at Blogaholic Designs. Not only did she offer a timeframe and stick to it, she kindly made any changes I suggested prior to sending me the finished button and icons. I just LOVE them! Pink damask, they couldn’t be more ‘me’!

If you’re thinking of tweaking your blog a little pop over and check out Emily’s range of buttons and badges. She also does customised blog design, backgrounds and she even has free buttons. She promises a response to email enquiries within 48 hours and promptly replied well within that timeframe.

As much as I enjoyed adding my own touch to my blog template I needed someone in the know to add a customised touch and Blogaholic Designs delivered.

To welcome my new button and icons I also gave my blog a mini-reno. I have now created 2 new pages; one featuring my favourite blogs to read, and another to share a little bit of eye candy. Take a look and let me know what you think.

I’m tickled pink!


  1. You know what? You're absolutely right.

    There could be no better way to express your personality than through a beautiful dusty pink'ish damask button.

    I just LOVE this, & you've made me realise I absolutely need a 'blogs I love' section on my page. Really, genuinely do.

    Lobe your blog! Love buttons! Loving an insight into all things finnish. Loving your culinary creations. Loving the beautiful pictures you have the ability to find!

    Thank you for being in this blogosphere xx

  2. Looking just fabulous here.
    Pretty and classy - and you!
    Oh my poor ugly, neglected blog!!
    I've been feeling the need to spruce things up in my space and you are pushing my guilt ridden butt in the right direction - thank you.

  3. Nice and pretty blog! Happy to follow you Peggy! ;)

    @Shar, thank you lovely. I am always quietly tweaking things here and there with my blog, just felt like I needed a little something special though. I love your blog, it reminds me of you. :)

  6. @Dini, thank you SO much for dropping in. I am a huge fan of your photos, you are so very creative. I look forward to seeing your new creations on Instagram every day.

  8. Oh I love it Peggy! It's looking beautiful and love your button :o) All these clever bloggers getting buttons customised, I'm so technologically challenged it's laughable. Wouldn't even know where to start with this stuff :o/
    Loving your blogs you heart section. And thank you so much for the lovely run down on my blog. You are too sweet Peggy xo

  9. You're welcome Julie, sharing the blog love. :)

    I had no idea about html and badges etc before I started blogging, and although I know a bit more now I don't know enough to create my own button and icons. Emily did a great job, love them!


I would REALLY love to hear your pretty thoughts. Since you're already here, why not leave me a comment?

Thank you for reading.
