I just had to show you this beautiful hand-made brooch I ordered for myself from Mandy at http://www.a-la-parisienne.blogspot.com/. Mandy's beautiful blog is on my blogroll and is a must-see treat. She is a beautiful young mother who has several creative endeavors going, including photography and blog design. I purchased this beauty from her Etsy shop. How satisfying it is to own something so unique and lovely.
Her brooches always are designed with such feminine details and colors. Mine is adorned with this pretty vintage blue pearl. When I opened the box, it was wrapped in fancy tissue paper and tied with an ecru ribbon. Mandy even included a hand-written thank you note and care instructions. Such attention to detail! Be sure and visit her.
Now....I have to shop for an outfit pretty enough to wear it with!
