Last night, while searching around on Etsy for nothing in particular (something I seem to do a lot), I spotted a gorgeous little brooch by OhMyCavalier on the front page.
"Oooh, I want one!" was obviously my first thought :)
But my second was that I have a brooch a little like that and I really should share...
The sweet little framed bunny illustration is from Marmee Craft and started actually a Victorian-style hanging ornament (there is still a couple left... and they are on sale!!) It came with the lush mossy green velvet ribbon (is they anything as lovely velvet ribbon? I think not) so it could be tied to the branch of a Christmas tree. I thought it would look cuter on me, so I tied the ribbon and stitched a brooch fastening on to the back of the bow... et volia! a Victorian hanging coat ornament it became!
I love how they look a little like medals, the kind of medal that would be given out if I was ever put in charge of that kind of thing.
Just thinking of a good reason to award myself a medal, so I can buy the OhMyCavalier one now...
