simply darling

I love brooches, they're so timeless aren't they? I'm not a huge collector but think I could be happy owning an array of large vintage {or new} brooches. I loved the idea of attaching one to the outside of a wrapped gift. {the gift doesn't necessarily have to be wrapped in a shirt, you could use any simple paper}. even better if the treat inside {like this adorable jacket} went with the brooch.

One of my best friends had brooch bouquets for her wedding, they were stunning!

I am a huge fan of broches. I inherited several from my grandmother and my husband gifted me one for Valentine's Day. Better get one out to wear tomorrow, thanks for the inspiration!

Simply Darling is right!!!!! I see gorgeous brooches at flea markets, second hand stores and Etsy all of the time, but since I am not big on jewelry I never thought to buy them, but now you have inspired me to get them for adornments on awesome book, wrapped in a fun shirt with a brooch on top! Great idea!!

Oh brooches are my favourite piece of jewellery at the moment. Adde3d to a simple outfit they can make such an impact.
