Store to Abode Fridays #11 - brooches

Vintage pins and brooches are beautiful.  The colors, the styles, the variety, it's all so exciting to me.

Here are some neat ways to reuse a favorite piece, or some crafty ideas if you score a bunch of these beauties at a reasonable price.

Here is the inspiration photo I took a few weeks ago at The Old Lucketts Store.  I love this 60's era enameled flower pin that Ann had in her room {dealer code RAM} on the third floor.

And here are some fun things you can do with your brooch pins!

{1} Martha Stewart Weddings featured a crafty bride several years ago, and brooch pin bouquets have been a beautiful {and everlasting} bouquet option ever since.


 {2}  Colorful floral pins are used for a wedding seating chart.  I thought this would be a wonderful idea for place cards for a springtime luncheon too.


{3}  If you want the most spectacular and unusual magnets on the planet, remove the pin backs and replace with heavy-duty magnets and glam up your frig!


 {4}  A brooch was added to this very sophisticated wrapping job.


{5} Here is a tutorial from Martha featuring this gorgeous ribbon and brooch necklace.


{6}  And finally, another gorgeous option for a headband made by repurposing an antique pin.


Have a great weekend everyone!
