I've been going a bit brooch crazy lately! I stumbled upon some really neat goodies in the supplies section on etsy that I figured would make neat brooches. Now I basically just want to plan all outfits around them. First I found the cicada (from this shop) which I grabbed two of so I could make collar clips (and sweater clips). Then I stumbled upon this shop which has a whoooole bunch of awesome things to make brooches from. I bought a pack of ten moths. But when I went back to see what else they had after I got those I fell in love with the "elusive moth collection" which has my favorite moth. the death's-head! guh!! So far I haven't come up with an excuse as to why I would need 16 moth brooches but I've certainly got my eye on them. A while back I shared some photos of my brooch collection but since then it's grown quite a bit. I've been thinking of sharing some updated photos soon.
Today is for catching up on emails (I kind of let them get out of hand last week! Oops!), an orthodontist appointment, baking and some more blog planning for the month of November. For the second day in a row in quite some time we're actually not supposed to get any rain today so I'm hoping to get outside and do something in the yard later. It's scary how soon the snow will be here. I need to cherish every nice day!
Hope you have an excellent Monday!
