Novelty Brooch Friday - June Winner

June was the first month we held the official:

'Noveltyyyy Broooooooch Friiii-daaaaaay!' 

Erin and I were super excited about this little idea and so pleased we had 173 entries!!! I hope you had a good ol' sticky beak at all the fabulous brooches everyone was wearing.  

There was handmade, vintage, wooden, tin, ceramic, plastic, wool, metals, felt, cross stitch, knitted, felted.....and the subjects of the brooches were just as diverse - it was fascinating and fun!

We also want to say a big thank you to Kirsten from Each to Own who was our first maker and shaker and who donated this lovely, cute fawn brooch to be given away.

As neither Erin or I could chose 'the best' we used a random number selector programme-thing-a-mi-jiggy and the person who submitted their brooch the 168th time (minus ourselves) to #noveltybroochfriday in June on instagram was:

@throughthealley Congratulations!! If you could email your postal details to me at I will forward to Kirsten who will send you your new brooch.

Isn't it sweet!

On Wednesday we will feature July's creator for Novelty Brooch Friday and reveal the fantastic brooch you could win.

Thanks again and g-e-t brooching!
