Brooches remind me of my great-gran- she had a huuuuuuuge collection; I was really fascinated with them as a kid, so she'd send me one for my birthday every year. I didn't notice it back then, but she always sent me the nicest ones.

One of my favorites is an enamel parrot with a red head, yellow body, and blue wings, and some sort of smooth dark stone for the eyes. It was one of her oldest ones, I like thinking that she wore it too when she wasn't much older than me.

Mmmm, yes..
You find the nicest in the strangest places.
Have robbed plenty from my granny over the years. She's dead so I doubt that she's that bothered.

Is there anywhere I can buy cameos that don't look like a lady's profile? My old music teacher had one, and it was a carved portrait of a lady practicing her cello, with her cat sitting on the floor. I fell in love with it, and have never been able to find it since.

^I like that, awesome colors, esp. for Fall!


I saw a REALLY amazing one at this antique mall yesterday. $45 dollars though.

Its a very dead place, so I'm sure it will be there next time. Until then I'm gonna look some more for something more reasonably priced.

Oooh I'm so inspired now!

I love the elephant brooches ( you HAVE to wear them together! ), the idea to put a brooch on a ribbon around your wrist, wearing brooches in the summer on tanks instead of necklaces.

I The Fashion Spot.

I have this rather gaudy golden brooch in the shape of a leopard with faux diamond eyes that my Dad got me in Thailand. I'm now thinking it might look quite cute on a tank in the summer - if it's not too big, otherwise on a bag.

Thank you everyone for posting!! I have to clarify, only the first one (the Chanel strawberry brooch is mine), the others are just pics from ebay

Hmm brooches on bags you say? Why is it that I never thought of that before!! I MUST try it!! Thank you for the suggestion, how wonderful My only worry is... wouldn't it leave holes in the bag, because the fabric of bags tend to be stiffer and more constructed?

hmmm, maybe you could tie a silky scarf on the bag or an organsa bow & pin the brooch to that?
