Doilies for petals

It is so busy and exciting around here at the moment. We are in the middle of 4 birthdays in 4 weeks in our little family (2 to go) always a busy time. Let alone less than 2 weeks for the 'Handmade in Bloom' market. I really think I work best with all this going on as these brooches are truly spectacular. They are one offs. Have a list a mile long to do before Fri 11th Sept.

The coat became a flower brooch!

This is the fabric that I couldn't leave on the inside of a coat. The coat I found at the op shop sale on Friday. It is so gorgeous. This has started the vintage range of brooches a new style that I will only use vintage fabrics and doilies.
It wasn't until I got home that I even noticed the buttons (5) on the coat.

Which one do you like?

The antique scarves are coming along nicely this one is its original color but I am going to dye some purple, some orange and a few red. They are the perfect weight for spring and summer.
Who can say 'no' to red and white gingham its so fresh. I see this looking great with jeans and white linen.

This one looks luxurious don't you think. A bit of glam for daytime. Wear with a plain white tee and still look glamorous.
