Today, a friend and I went shopping in a nearby town. Mostly I came home laden with lovely vintage fabrics, but my favourite find was this beautiful bird brooch. I bought it mainly because it was so lovely and so blue. But after doing a bit of research, it turns out there’s a bit more history behind it than I’d first thought there might be. I had never heard of a Takahashi brooch before, but now I have, and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing. If you search for “takahashi bird brooch” in google images your eyes are in for a treat! This one is a 1970’s reproduction (you can tell a reproduction by the fact screws were used to attached the brooch pin), but I still think it’s lovely! All in all, a good day’s shopping.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
