a goofy collection


It's no secret that I have a taste for the silly, and my brooch collection is no exception. This is only about 30% of my collection, mostly found at thrift stores, flea markets, sidewalk sales, and on Etsy. I do love classically pretty brooches too, but nothing tugs at my heart more than a furry dog with googly eyes or a mischievous looking Dracula. What can I say, I like my accessories to have a sense of humor!

This is great! I love the 'May I help you' brooch! Brooches are the best, I just recently bought two pink plastic bicycle brooches, a hen and two other random birds and one of my favorite ones must be the one with two harlequins riding on unicycles!

I like the phone one, but the googly eyed furry dog is creeping me out a bit!

The bird looks like the Guinness toucan.

I love the one with the phone :D And the doggie in the last picture looks like Chewbacca, but still cute :)
Love, Andrea

I just love "that may I help you" brooch. It is just too cute. Just don't wear all black in a department store people might really start asking you for your help.
