Brooch-a-licious!

After seeing Cam's post over at Curly Pops I knew I had to show off my brooches too!

These used to live in a drawer but I kept losing them so I found this hanger and added them to it. It now lives next to my dressing table :)

The vast majority of the sparkly vintage ones are from charity shops or some were gifts from my mum who got them in charity shops! The orange chicken at the top is from Alex and the orange flower is from Alice at Raspberry. The brown one on the right hand side has real heather and moss inside it.

The skanky and pervert badges are from Avenue Q - a musical which I urge you all to see if you don't mind a bit of bad language now and then - it's hilarious! The Haley's comet badge is Matt's from when he was little and my sister made me the light blue collection to the top right. They feature Cool Cactus, Disco Duck and Parachuting Pig!

The crocheted Santa came from a jumble sale and the black button brooch was made by me - I needed something that would go with all the colour that I wear! The circle brooch at the bottom is by Sophie Isobel and is entitled The Artist.

The hanger is a fantastic idea for storing brooches.

nice collection of buttons and brooches :D I really like that round silver one at the top, very pretty :)

mom use to have 2 macramé hangers that were about 4 feet tall covered in buttons and brooches. seeing everyone's post about the buttons they have makes me wonder what she did with them all...

Broochalicious indeed!
What a fabulous way of hanging them all together. Mine are just hidden away in my bathroom drawer.
I particularly love all of those vintage diamante type clusters...beautiful.

Gorgeous collection of brooches - really cool way of storing and displaying them. I hope that's good old Scottish heather and moss :)!
