Brooch love and giveaway fun note!

I love brooches.

Wooden brooches are my fave. I love pinning one to my clothing and going through my day with a happy picture on my top, or skirt hem, even my jeans.

Brooches are perfect. They are a little pop of color, a whimsical picture, retro giggles, destiny statements, out loud thoughts, vintage romance, and fun, you can wear.

Brooches are back in fashion in a big way and these babies really brighten your day.


I had to include this one from my childhood.

This week I am giving away a cute brooch, to 2 lucky readers,
the first of many fun giveaways over the next month.

The brooches up for grabs are:

  4. On the bandwagon = joined!
    I'm fond of the odd vintage brooch too -- my favourites are fox terriers and anything in bakelite. I like tea please, to be worn with green jacket, blue scarf, green skirt and blue shirt. The colours are lovely!
    Thank you for the reminders of everyday magic.

  5. Thank you all for joining. I am loving the fashion ideas. I would wear the vintage crochet cameo with my denim jacket and my dark denim jeans with a fresh white shirt underneath, and bright yellow heels -(I love yellow too Szappanbubi). - a denim on denim vintage look. Or, I would wear the teacup with my fave soft knit v jumper with a dotty colored collored shirt peeking out. What fun!


Chats with you are my fave.
