Flowers and Pretties

Its been so long since I was able to find any yummy bargains in the local charity shops, they have put up their prices considerably lately and although I know its charity and am helping when I spend, I really want to keep the cost down, well this week I found 2 beautiful bargains, beautiful rose brooches, I have a few brooches, never wear them, just leave them looking pretty in a pretty bowl in my bedroom.

My love started about 5 years ago when my Step mom bought me a lovely Black brooch made by a Russian lady who lived local to her, and since then I have picked them up in car boot sales and charity shops and a couple from ebay that weren't to pricey too, and my darling sister bought me the green leaf one as part of my birthday charity shop box.

They are not all in this pic as I have used some on some crafting items too.

Well enough of the brooches, look at my orchid, my darling sister (again) bought this for me last year and not long after it came home most of the flowers dropped and I eneded up with a bare stalk, sis told me not to worry more would grow and showed me how to look after it and lo and behold, I have two new beautiful flowers, they are certainly cheering me up on these cold days.

So pretty especially since my indoor daffs and hyacinth have faded.
