Next time I think I will try making one out of lace.
I was delightfully excited when I recently received a brooch I won on eBay for $3.00. It was a Crown and wreath brooch from Buckingham Palace. I was tickled to have won the auction for only $3.00 and I was excited about receiving it. It arrived and I opened it to find my new lovely brooch complete with original box and paperwork.
Inside the box I found not only the brooch but a coin pendant that the seller had graciously enclosed with the brooch. When I wrote to thank her for the gift she simply said "Glad you like it" and "Merry Christmas". I am delighted with both of my precious treasures but even more touched that someone did something so nice just for the sake of being nice.
So I took the coin and made a bow pin out of it.
Now I can wear it.
