Back to brooches again... which are one of my favourite accessories as they're usually a relatively inexpensive way to update a bag, blouse, jacket or cardigan.
Right now, I'm very much charmed with these teatime inspired ceramic clay pieces from Melbourne-based Vanilla Bug.
The milk carton is just so adorable! For a conversation-starter, I'd go for the tea-bag & tag brooch, both gently weighing in at AU$30 and AU$40 respectively.
Of course if you're completely undecided (or have a bunch of pals who like different pieces), the designer sells the whole lot (including the teaspoon necklace and doily brooch) for AU$120 - that's a decent AU$30 discount!
