Some of you may already know of my love of the mythical creature the jackalope, so it was no surprise when Erstwilder released a jackalope brooch I just had to get my hands on one!
Now unlike so many of my vintage loving friends, I’m actually not the biggest fan of Erstwilder’s stuff, as I feel like their use of varying patterned plastics creates too much texture within a brooch. I’m also super picky about the jackalope stuff I buy, because there is some weird, not so cute stuff out there, but thankfully, this jackalope only featured limited use of patterned plastics, and overall was a really cute design.
During a recent visit to Knott’s Berry Farm, I began talking with one of the women who works at Leather Shop, where I am now fully addicted to their leather barrette. Seriously, they offer an amazing selection of unique stamps (most of which are western themed) and they make you your very own custom leather barrette right there! I spied a rabbit stamp and talked about how I wish it were a jackalope, and the girl said “I can do that.” And she did! I was so excited! And it turned out super amazing! It was the perfect addition to my outfit.
She shared with me other custom ones she had done, and we got talking and soon I settled on wanting to make one featuring an element from my favorite show The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., and she was able to complete that as well, so I hope to share it soon!
I want to thank all of you who commented on my last post. It was very wonderful to hear your thoughts, struggles, and encouragement. I really love the community blogging creates, and hope to continue to be a part of that. I’m also working on how I want to share my charm bracelet collection, as that was a highly requested collection to share. It may be a two or three part post, as I do have quite a few charm bracelets, and like with the linens post, I’ll want to take close-ups of some of my favorite charms.
