This whimsical brooch is fashioned from four vintage findings. The bottom layer is a shabby chic lavender octagonal vintage slide buckle topped with a shiny sage green vintage button. The top layer is a retro lilac purple flower button topped with a white glass vintage cabochon with a painted green sunflower. Lilac and lavender loveliness!
Perfect for your jacket or coat, handbag or hat this brooch is fashioned from sweet vintage treasures. It measures 2 7/8″ across and has a securely attached 1 1/4″ silver tone pinback.
I started Whimsy House on a whim, of course, in the spring of 2007. Shortly after my second daughter was born it quickly became evident that my “stay-at-home-mommy” title was overtaking that of “interior designer career woman.” My passion to remain in a creative business lead to the start of Whimsy House. In the early 90’s I owned The Angelic Rabbit, an antiques and gift shop, with my mom in Middleton, WI. My love for vintage goodness bloomed and my retail knowledge grew quickly. All my experiences and interests merged with the creation of Whimsy House.
My designs are inspired by all things vintage, the sentimental pieces of the past. I derive an immense amount of pleasure through creating one-of-a-kind accessories with findings from yesteryear. I turn ridiculously giddy over a mason jar of old buttons, a box filled with well worn fabrics or trims, a broken down jewelry box of partner-less earrings and strands of old beads. Oh, the world of possibilities! The pendants, rings and brooches just screaming to be born!
