This is a gorgeous idea for doing more with your sparkling brooches.
Trilliums are the flower of Ontario. This would be a nice tea cup and saucer set too.
You Are a Hopeful Valentine
Even though you know flowers are temporary and perishable, you are able to enjoy every moment of their beauty.You’re the same way with love. It may or may not last forever, but you make the most of what you’ve got.You find it easy to be happy, and you don’t put a lot of demands on your partner. You are very accepting.
You appreciate any little thing your partner does for you. It doesn’t take much to make you swoon.
I seldom actually drink tea but I like pretty, vintage and delicate tea cups and saucers. Best of all, I like when they are not a set, all perfect and all matching each other. A mismatched set has more charm and variety and seems less tight laced and formal.
Whether you drink a lot of tea or just a little, a pretty cup and saucer is a treat and just nice for Valentine’s Day for someone who doesn’t want chocolates, candy, flowers or much of the traditional Valentine romance. Instead, think of a teacup (don’t forget the matching saucer because the actual cup and saucer should match or you just look like you are very bad at washing your dishes).
This blushing vintage pretty comes from Etsy. It’s a bit expensive but it really suits Valentine’s Day.
I often find the best sparkling jewellery when I’m not looking for it. Both of these necklaces are gorgeous for sparkles and style. I wish the images were bigger to see the details better. You can zoom up for a better look on the site (see link below).
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 this one on Sparklotron. The frame shape makes it kind of unique.
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.

So pretty. I like that each one is a bit different and they could almost be snowflakes if you were wearing it for the Christmas holidays.
