Isn't that just beautiful? Last weekend at the 1812 event at long woods one of the vendors had these wonderful feather brooches for sale, that a friend of his hand makes. Since I'm thinking of using sunflowers for the ladies' bouquets and that's just too large a flower to turn into a boutonniere, these might be just the ticket!! Terry (the vendor) is going to put me in touch with the lady who makes them and we'll parley about a set of four custom made brooches. I really like the one pictured and the colours are just about right, but then andrew spotted a different one with a silver celtic knot at the center instead of a shell, and we both agreed that is more us!
