Oh so pretty!

There are some talented people out there with a flair for design, creating gorgeous things.  Thanks to the internet, and specifically to social media, I came across the fine work of these two ladies.

I "met" Paula aka The Concealer on Twitter.  Not only is she a talented make-up artist (see her portfolio on her website), she also designed a series of beautiful mirrored acrylic brooches.  The brooches are custom-made in Texas, and her creations range from the elegant to the whimsical.

Carousel Horsie brooches

Bird Cage brooch (Paula's favourite)

And my favourite, Bonsai!!! brooch

They are très chic.  I can easily picture one of her brooches pinned on a casual canvas bag, or wore with a knitted top and pleated skirt/skinny jeans.

Check out her gallery for more designs and purchase details.

One of my Facebook friend "liked" the work of cho-chelle.  It is impossible to not fall in love with these cute beanies (for kids and adults alike).

I'll buy one for TLG in a heartbeat - if I can convince him to keep a beanie on!

Visit cro-chelle's Facebook page on her online store for more details.

    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
