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).
Sleepy Hooty beanies
Sock Monkey beanie
Earflap beanie with Flower
I'll buy one for TLG in a heartbeat - if I can convince him to keep a beanie on!
