Shop update!

There are new pieces up in the shop!

Web

There are rosebud headbands in pewter, turquoise and sage, and rosebud belts in chocolate, navy, marigold and turquoise. There are also brand new pin corsages in several colors. They are so sweet for fall because you can pin them on blazers and cardigans. I've backed them in my favorite 100% wool felt (this is not your mother's thin craft felt, trust me), which makes them nice and sturdy and gives them a great feel.

Sidenote - I think we need to bring brooches back, people. I have a few vintage brooches that I love, because they make even old, boring coats feel special. Sometimes I stick them on blouses or belts. If you are super stylish, you could pin one on a fabulous hat and pull it off.

I thoroughly enjoyed putting this update together. And thanks again to my lovely sister for being my model. We had lots of fun shooting the photos together (we used one of my favorite family heirlooms, a hand crocheted tablecloth, as our backdrop). Hop over to the shop to see more pictures.

  5. Oh, I love the belts and pins! But now I'm torn between the marigold and the navy. The marigold seems to have an edge, though...

  12. Hi Rachel- I just tagged you with the Kreativ Blogger award. I don't typically do this type of thing so I am not the least bit offended should you decide to forgo. Just thought it might be fun during baby waiting time. You can get all the details on my site. Much love!

  13. Those new corsages are wonderful! I completely agree that brooches need to come back. I see them around and they really do just dress up a boring coat or sweater.

  14. I'm so there. I wear brooches now and then because I'm allergic to metals and can't wear much else jewelry, but I dream of a vast collection so I can wear one every day. These are gorgeous!

  19. Hi- Just wanted to say that I love the new goodies for the shop, and also, that I love brooches. I have about 5 that were my grandmothers and I wear them all the time- on ribbons as belts, grouped together on my jackets, and also on wraps and scarves. We definitely need to start bringing them back- good to hear someone else loves them!
