I've been meaning to show this little brooch I bought from Melissa of Tiny Happy. I love Melissa's sweet and natural style, the things she makes are pretty and delicate and simple. Isla has two pairs of her gorgeous baby shoes that she has worn so much.
I had the idea of making my mum a simple linen scarf for her birthday and I knew one of Melissa's little brooches would be the perfect partner for it. I had seen and loved her clover flower embroideries, so Melissa was kind enough to make me a little clover flower brooch. Melissa's freehand embroideries are just lovely, look at this one, and this one, and this one. They often inspire me to pick up needle and thread and give it a go myself, though I am yet to really do it, but I will, soon.
I meant to take a picture of mum wearing these while we were visiting, but of course I forgot. So this not so good photo I took in the mirror will have to suffice.
