Dear Eldest Daughter has been coming up with all kinds of ideas for her upcoming wedding in May. Most recently it is that she wants a vintage brooch bouquet.
We both have started collecting rhinestone and silver vintage looking brooch pieces to make this bouquet for her wedding. There are a couple of sites on the web showing the DIY methods, so I think I can manage to get r’ done.
When we were in St.Jacobs a few weeks ago I ventured into a store called La Crème, and to my amazement were samples of these brooch bouquets. Absolutely gorgeous. I thought, what are the chances of me walking into a store, miles away from home, to find exactly what Dear Eldest Daughter is thinking about. Probably a million to one.
We did enjoy our day there, it’s been years since we visited. The market is always a highlight, shopping is usually productive and they have a really nice antique mall there now as well. A day well spent, plus great inspiration for this anticipated brooch bouquet.
