bows, not for beaus

I've had a fondness for tow ties for quite some time now, and I keep trying to think of different ways to wear them. First I put them on bracelets, then I put them on headbands, and now I've decided that I really like them as brooches. I made this batch yesterday (you can consider this your sneak peek), and I decided that a cluster of bow ties is très mignon!

Black suede, grey and mustard yellow leather, all with pin backs. I've been wanting to do a little thrifting for tacky, brightly colored leather bags or clothes that I could use as donor leather because I'd like a cluster for myself, but I really want green or teal leather!

Two weeks from this very moment, I will be in the sky on my way from Philadelphia to California! I've decided that since I won't be blogging for a few days, I'll post the giveaway before I leave on the 10th!
