You're my obsession

The latest thing I'm obsessed with....BROOCHES!
I'm in love with them! I have a ton of solid color v-necks so this dresses them up a bit. Makes me look less like a boy. Also, they look fantastic on my cardigans! They are a great touch to any outfit!
Here are the latest cute & quirky ones I bought:

Adorable little sitting hedgehog pin from Paper Lotus

A crafty little crochet flower brooch from Craftyminx

This awesome mushroom goodness brooch from Quid

And this rockin' baby deer plush cameo brooch from Magical Pony Farm

Speaking of brooches, I made a yeti pin!
Who doesn't want to wear a yeti head on them? hmmm

And I'm going to end this post with my new pair of Toms.
(I took this picture with my macbook, which works like a mirror. Hence, toms spelled backwards.)

I'm really excited about this pair because they are lined with fleece!! These shoes aren't meant to be worn with socks so the lined fleece keep my feetsies nice and warm when it's cold out!
If you haven't heard of Toms shoes before please click here to be directed to their website.
For every pair purchased, Toms will give a pair of shoes to a child in need.

Ok, I need to get back to work now! Snugglies are yelling for me!
Oh, also I listed two pouches in the shop today!

Oh, and I have a question for you!
What's your favorite animal?


  1. Killer whales are my FAVORITE animals. I've been obsessed ever since I was a little girl, I even wrote a letter to Bill Clinton about the conditions in which they are kept at theme parks. I was quite the opinionated little thing, even when I was 10 years old.

  2. I love "favorite" questions because I always have a different it's turtles. Speaking of favorites, the first brooch is my second favorite, and the yeti pin is my first favorite! You're so very clever.

    And the Toms....I'm jealous. I'll give you one guess where my first $46 worth of Christmas money is going.

  3. Those are really pretty, I love the yeti pin too..My favorite animal by far is the owl..don't know why, but I love them..

  4. I like hippos and llamas the best. Hippos are so cute, and llamas have the long, pretty eyelashes.

    I bought a set of Paper Lotus Chritmas cards with the same hedgehog on them. So cute!

  5. OMG!!! Tht Yeti pin is F*A*N*T*A*S*T*I*C!!!!!

  6. Yay for Toms Shoes!

    Favorite animal...oh thats a toughie. I ♥ animals way too much for this quesion.

    Probably a tie between the wombat and the tazmanian devil.

  7. He looks so good as a pin. I*m digging the tattoo pouch.

  8. elephants... remember everything, very wise, slow to move until it's time to decapitate someone...

  9. I love that tattoo inspired pouch! Super cute! My favorite animal is the PEACOCK!! They're so beautiful!

  10. Cute broches !! I love pins too, and favorite animal, I LOVE them all, but since I mostly paint horses, we'll go with that. I know, shock and surprise, after seeing my avatar.

  11. I'm pretty partial to cats. They're like little people! I also like birds though. What's you favorite animal?

    I love the yeti brooch! So cute and great and scary! I wouldn't want to mess with someone wearing one ;)

  12. My friend and i were JUST talking about our favorite animals today! Mine is an ostrich because they are so quirky looking :)

  13. Some neat stuff you have there!

    And (of course) my favorite animal is a dog. They're called "Man's Best Friend" with good reason, LOL.

  14. Your brooches are fabulous! I love the deer one! Also, I LOVEEE the yeti head, too cute! I've always wanted a pair of Toms and I am totally jealous of your! I love the new "tattoo-style" pouch in your shop! And my favorite animal is a platypus (:

    Its so fun to swap!

    And, I've posted a new blog post today, and I put some photos of the magnet gift you sent me. I love it! Oh, I love magnets SOOOO much!

    AND... Favorite animals:
    I love birds when I'm decorating my house.
    I love dogs when I want to cuddle.
    I love cats during the day (not at night, they sleep on my face).


  22. The deer brooch is so cute and feminine! Also, those Toms are too awesome...they look quite cozy; I might have to buy my boyf a pair!

  23. My favorite animal... hm. I'd say a wolf or fox.

  24. awww...thanks for showing off my brooch...I'm honored!

  25. foxes, bears, and birds of all sorts. If you 've seen my blog...I love just about every thing with fins, fur and feathers. Not much help eh? Well then cats...who doesn't like cats? they are soft and warm and cute and cuddly. I have on on my lap as I speak.

  26. I've been wanting to get a pair of Toms for a while now. i was hoping to find a pair that I can wear in my cubicle that are considered somewhat "business casual" honestly i'll wear some black fuzzy slippers until someone calls me out.

    Oh and if you like broochies you should really check out skipping stones on Etsy. I noticed she sold a lot of her goodies but the leftovers are still pretty excellent.

    By the way, love the yeti brooch!
