Three of my favourite things (and I have a lot of favourite things) are: brooches, rhinestones and simple daisies. This brooch and earring set is something I’d love. But, I don’t actually wear jewellery. I have some hanging around to be admired. That’s how I like it. via – WEISS Daisy Brooch & Earring Set – White and Rhinestone Petals | New Leaf Galleries | Home Again.
See, I’m not that hard to please and I don’t have incredibly expensive tastes. this daisy sparkler is only $14. I would love this for Valentine’s Day. I don’t have a Valentine and I’m not especially looking for one. They are really only seasonal, Valentines I mean. Brooches never go out of style, or season!
I think this would get caught on almost everything you wore. but, it does have the right look for a chrysanthemum flower and I like the glow of the jewel in the centre, especially in the photo.
Found at an online shop called Pugster.
After some thought I think I’ve narrowed it down to two, or three… of these. I’d like to wear them all, together on my coat. A Valentine brooch collage.

Dazzling for Valentine’s Day. Found at an online shop: Dazzle City
Found this one on Sparklotron. The frame shape makes it kind of unique.
So pretty. On the site it’s called a citrine coloured brooch. It has a mix of moonglow white and blue stones around the large lemon (citrine) stones. To me it seems there are some rhinestones with their multi-colours too. Very nice!
If you give them some neglect and yet don’t completely forget them, poinsettias can last for years. They probably won’t flower again. To get them to flower you have to be really strict at the 12 hours of darkness and then 12 hours of light. Not so easy to pull off in the Canadian winter when it is fully dark around 5:00PM. But, I have kept a poinsettia plant alive for years. Then I moved and all my plants died from some kind of fungus (even the cactus got it).
Poinsettias are one of my favourite Christmas things. Most years I find a new poinsettia brooch. This year I didn’t find one in time for the holidays. I really like this one, but I don’t want to spend more on the credit cards. So, I will settle for having it’s picture up instead.
