Six years ago I would not leave the house without a brooch on my coat, sweater or shirt.
They fell out of favour,
at least in the eyes of the fashion authorities and I think I grew tired of them myself...
coincidence perhaps, as I do not really "follow fashion."
My wee collection has been gathering dust in the jewelry chest.
It would appear that the fashion writers have declared them "back in style."
Today I pinned one on just to see if it would "feel right."
Comments and compliments were numerous...
even my students liked it.
A fellow Canadian, Carole Tanenbaum collects and sells vintage pieces.
She's written a book Fabulous Fakes about her passion for all these sparkly gems.
You can see them online and while you are there stop by her blog.

say what you will
some of you will find this extremely tacky
others may think it is fun
one thing I discovered today was that it's a great conversation starter!
