Joining the bloggers who are showing their brooches at Une Femme, I have three favorites:
Fifty years old. Measures 2 5/8 inches across.
Packed away for years; it is new again.
A little giraffe with a big faux garnet and beady green eyes.
Vintage glass buttons can be attached
with special safety pins that have a half
loop that hold the button shank so they're
easily removed to clean the garment.
I use these larger ones as brooches.
