busy busy busy

I have been so busy this last few weeks with work, sorting out our flat after building work and generally stress in our building that I feel like I never have enough time to keep on top of things. So sorry for another brooch related post but I promise the next time I blog there will be no products in site.

I did have to just let you all see the most gorgeous new colourway of dachshund brooch from Paperfish that I received today and had to put straight into my notonthehighstreet shop.

Loving the turquoise and red combo. The green version has sold so well that I have restocked with that one too but I decided to offer another colour to give you all a choice. Hope you love it as much as me.

Winters day.

I really love winter, it is my favourite season, and although so far this month has been pretty rainy and grey I am still much happier in a big jumper and a cup of tea than in a summer dress and a lolly pop (although I do love lollies). Plus getting to wear all those winter warmers is an even better excuse to accessorize yourself up to the eye balls. I am a person who does like a bit of costume jewellery, normally chunky and colourful. It is a great way to jazz up a otherwise boring black jumper or give a bit more life to your trusty winter coat.

To cheer yourselves and add some brightness to those short winter days why not pin on one of the fabulous brooches I have in my Notonthehighstreet shop.

Pin on this sweet Paperfish heart brooch for a surefire way to add some interest to a classic brown jacket, I think this would look fab on tweed.

With this set of pin back badges from Summersville you can mix and make colours and patterns to create different looks. Pin on singularly for a pop of colour or group 3 together for more of a statement.

Or these slightly sparkling snowflake brooches from yours truely. Hand beaded with little frosted glass beads to give an ice cold feel.
