It's no secret

That I love to sew. Which is why when a friend came across this insanely cute brooch he knew it would have a good home with me. I've been meaning to share this little ditty for quite awhile actually. I've seen these pins before but never one so detailed. My favorite part is the tiny eye glasses and thimble. Swoon.

Anyhoo, Andy and finally saw Grey Gardens this weekend. It's the riches to rags story of reclusive mother and daughter, Big Edie and Little Edie Beale. The pair shared witty banter, bizarre antics, and a overly dependant relationship in a decaying mansion filled with squalor and cats, lots of cats. The Edie's also happened to be aunt and cousin to first lady Jackie O, which caused quite a stir with the press when photos of their home were released.

The dialogue captured my attention the most as well as the costumes. When Little Edie declares that "one must have the right costume for the day", I was instantly spellbound by these women and their bizarre existence. Seriously worth checking out if you have a soft spot for eccentric characters, as I tend to. Before I sign off on this post I wanted to show off the newest color available in the golden poppy tunics.

I do lots of custom orders for the black and gold and it just occurred to me to offer them in the Shop. Sometimes the obvious escapes me. Happy Tuesday all!

I still haven't watched Gray Gardens yet, it is wasting away on my DVR!
