I really do love cute brooches. They can perk me up on a cold morning, just seeing a bright pretty one pinned to my coat.
I am not doing a very good job of getting the green one to show in the best light. It is really a pretty vibrant green. But my pictures are making it look more blue.
I wish I still had all the ones that were given to me as a small child... my great Aunt had given me a box filled with them. Sadly, none of them survived. But I suspect that is when my interest in them developed.
