These are my novelty brooches.
I got this one at a vintage fashion expo. It was near the holidays, and I really wanted on of the Christmas trees, but they were all way out of my price range. The red of the cherries almost perfectly matches a pair of paten leather sandals I have, and I look forward to the coming warm weather so I can wear the combo again.
This poor fishy looks like it has something terrifying chasing after it. My dad gave this to me for my birthday two years ago. It’s shell and enamel.
I got these cuties at a thrift store during a Labor Day sale a few years ago. The are made from leather and wire, and are about the size of a nickel.
Here’s the white mouse, which has a permanent home on the lapel of my wool plaid jacket.
