Little Brooches

As I was sitting making more ornaments, I remembered how I used to make little pins. I figured yesterday was as good at time as any to whip up a few. I came up with mini ghosts, witches, and my favorite typewriter. I’ll be working on a rainbow assortment of typewriter brooches, and maybe some more last minute Halloween ones.

Royal Typewriters

I love typewriters. I love the happy colors these would come in! I remember playing on my mother’s typewriter in her shop, imagining way before I knew how, that I was typing a hundred words a minute. The downside was how heavy they were. Boy were they heavy! The last typewriter we had was one of the REALLY old ones, all black, heavy as a house it seemed. Anyway, I figured if you like typewriters but don’t like the weight of them, the space they take up if you really like them, then how about a painting of one?
