Just launched…

Nanna’s Button Tin, published by Walker Books with beautiful illustrations by Heather Potter was launched in June. Since then Dianne has shown her own button tins and childhood friend, Eeyore, to junior students across Western Australia and during BookweekMonth she enjoyed button craft with hundreds of children.


A gentle story about a little girl and her Nanna looking for a very special button …


My grandmothers were skilled sewers and they both had beautiful button tins. When I was a young girl, I loved shaking those pretty tins. I would tip out the buttons to make patterns, sort colours, shapes and choose favourites. Memories of those button tins inspired this gentle story about a girl and her nanna looking for a very special button.
