Giveaway love ---It's nice being a winner sometimes :)

Clearly publicizing giveaways by other crafters in a previous post paid off, as I won the giveaway from Punk Rawk Purl and Restless Hearts Crafts-here's the lovely brooch I won:

Golden Brooch w/ Perfectly Peach Pearl Center-  2.5" diameter (source:
I 'm currently brainstorming a few ways to show off this beauty when it arrives on Pinterest and thought I'd share.

Brooches always look nice on scarves!

Pinned onto a coat is pretty classic

Pinned onto a hat like this perhaps

On a fancy shrug ?

I do really like this hat, should I ever have to attend any Royal weddings/functions (hey, it could happen...)

Pinned onto a headband also looks divine

However, since most of my thoughts involve winter clothes and is is super hot out, likely I will settle for something like this for now-pinned onto a sweet cardigan, and paired with a pretty dress!
