Cushion update: To Button or Not to Button

Hello and happy weekend.
Last post I asked you all if I should add buttons to some crocheted cushion covers I had made, or if you thought that would make them uncomfortable.
Thank you very much to all who responded, (Go Blogtopia!!!)
and the response  was definitely "do it!"
So I did it, and here it is:

I am really happy with how it turned out.
In the interests of truthfulness, it was not actually I who did it, but rather my sweetie.

I am appallingly badly at finicky things like threading needles.....and sewing buttons, whereas his fine motor skills are amazing from all that painting of models he does.
So anyway, he sewed on the buttons, and I am loving them.

In other news; do any of you have any idea what on earth this is?

I don't know what it is, but I did know I liked it!
Found that at a shop during this mornings ventures.

Also found these- so reminded me of my childhood

also forgot to show you this, I had promised/threatened my friend I would make her a crocheted bikini for her birthday, so I made this, and glued it on a card

And finally I will love you and leave you with these photos from the walk and bike ride the small one and I took this morning.

Oops, nearly forgot I wanted to show you this:
my youngest daughters other favourite song: Somebody I used to Know by Gotye.
Check it out- it's really really good.

 I've linked to a live version, as I wasn't sure everyone was ready for the original youtube one- but check it out if you're interested, they both have great body paint on
