I always admire people who can wear brooches, and wear them well. I'm going to give it a go this winter. They seem like the perfect thing to wear on a big warm jacket or on a scarf. I've been particularly inspired by All This Happiness, who is very much in love with her Mr. Seahorse and Mr. Fox brooches.

This is my current collection. The top two are from the market while the bottom two were op shop finds.

This glamourpuss I found today, at the op shop I volunteer at. I've had my eye out for something with some super sparkle and flower formed, mostly as a gift idea for a friend. But I may have accidently fallen in love with this one. It may also be a bit too ostentatious for the friend in mind. At least that's what I tell myself!

Meet Helga. I picked this one up when I first started volunteering at the local op shop. What fascinates me most about this brooch is that on the back the wonderful golden frame is continued and stamped with "Western Germany". I couldn't help myself. My sister has the sister brooch, which features a different face. I also have the matching necklace, which feels horribly plastic but that's also why I like it. It has a bit of kitsch charm about it.

I wish I could share a close up of Poison Girl brooch, but I'm having some internet difficulties. Let me assure you though, she is gorgeous :)

And this guy? This cute isn't a brooch. Yet. I have plans to transform him sometime soon. I picked him up at the Flower and Garden show. I believe he will look very cute resting on my woolen jumpers.
