Week in Brooches: Summer!

Temperatures are rising in The Netherlands. A Dutch summer is basically always the same: It begins nice and sunny but then it gets really humid and it is a bit too much. Eating lots of popsicles helps. And taking lunch breaks and walk next to the Amstel.

I love to wear coral colored clothes and accessories. The black bird matches the summer outfit perfectly.

Another perk of summer is wearing vintage dresses. A white hedgehog brooch hides on the bow. I love those small brooches that pimp an outfit in a very subtle way. There are still some hedgehog brooches available in the shop!

I organized a WOOD market in Rotterdam. There were several stalls that all had something to do with wood. There was a craft woodworker, a contemporary furniture maker and the bookstore had selected all the books on wood and tree houses. I handed all visitors birch juice. Of course the wooden mushroom brooch accompanied me.

  1. Love that black bird brooch. And the hedgehog looks super on your vintage dress! Is that photo in your Etsy shop yet?! ;)
