For the last couple of weeks I have been flat out, busily preparing for the second Hide & Seek market as well as dealing with snotty and croup-y kids. As a reward I decided to go shopping and treat myself to something for me, but it is never fun to actually go shopping with a 1.5 and 3 year old, neither of whom enjoy the pleasures of shopping. So when I stumbled across this gorgeous brooch on Etsy, I just had to order it!!
Eco Felt Flower Brooch from Lupin Handmade
It is beautifully made, all the petals are handcut and handsewn together, I love wearing it... and while I was ordering the brooch I also ordered myself some of these pins...
Aren't they the cutest? They are long, like 5cm, so I use half as many when pinning things together before sewing. They make me smile! A successful shopping trip, don't you think!!
