The Story of Burt, Button & Boo
Welcome to Burt, Button and Boo.
My name is Emily, more recently known as Lemonies Buttons. Isabella MacKay Burt was my beautiful Grandmother, born in 1931 when skills such as knitting and sewing were naturally passed down through the generations. My Mother, Rosemary Burt Matheson, took these skills and created her own individual styles over the years. Not being a fan of following a pattern, she now creates beautifully unique knitted and crocheted Accessories and Gifts, under the alias of Heartfelt Handmade.
I am not a Knitter! My own creations use vastly different skills that I have found a passion for. Buttons are my main medium. The nostalgia evoked by a tin of buttons passed down through the family fills my heart with warmth and happiness. I see this happiness in my own daughter, Isabella Blossom, lovingly known as Bella-Boo. When she gets out all forms of Arts and Crafts, her 8 year old enthusiasm is joyful to be around.
This is the Joy, Passion and Warmth that we, as a family, hope to share with you with our handcrafted, bespoke creations.
Undoubtedly made for you with love.
