~* My aLiCe In WoNdErLaNd ViNtAgE BrOoCh BoUqUeT *~

My love for all things Alice led me to create my second vintage brooch bouquet inspired by Wonderland. This bouquet features a beautiful muslin fabric bouquet which I purchased again from etsy.  I handpicked and attached over 50 vintage brooches in pinks and blues including enamel flowers and butterflies, rhinestone flowers, pink flamingo buttons, tiny mushrooms, resin playing cards, adorable Eat Me and Drink Me containers made for me by my friend Zoe in our Alice and Wonderland swap and a few vintage earring clusters. The Alice figure is actually a ring I had! 
  I found the most beautiful tiny Cheshire Cat handmade in Italy from etsy shop Mijbil Creatures. He's only 5/8 of an inch and sooo cute! A perfect addition!
Lastly, I tied a vintage handkerchief around the base. 
And there you have it... my Alice in Wonderland vintage brooch bouquet!!
Hugs to All

We have missed you and your fabulous creations! These are just as colorful and fun as ever. My goodness, the kids are back at school, right?

So beautiful. I bet that was a blast to make. They are both wonderful but the cat makes this one my favorite. Lisa

Yes dear, the world is full of darkness, but WE can be light...the flame is love...sounds too easy but it is the only way that seems to work....all else simply fails.
