These are a few of my favorite things.
Today I’m letting my inner magpie show, and focusing on shiny things. This is a gorgeous piece. A 1950s compact, with lipstick and cigarette holder. Cigarettes were smaller back then, but it would make a fantastic place to store cards and cash on a night out. I personally would just hoard this piece, pull it out and stare at it once in a while.
Here is another beautiful vintage compact.
My mother collects brooches of insects and animals. This cockerel brooch is quirky, but beautiful enough to join her collection. However her birthday and Mother’s Day are long gone, and with Christmas barely registering on my mental calendar, I’m leaving this piece in store for another collector.
This Thai elephant brooch is divine! I don’t know what it means, or anything about its origins alas, but I keep finding myself drawn to this piece. This black elephant seems mysterious and beautiful to me. I know I have a few elephant collectors in my regulars!
A simple and elegant leaf. This makes a statement on its own.
Anyone who regularly comes into Mo-Mos will soon learn I am a HUGE Disney fanatic. This brooch reminds me of Beauty and the Beast, my all time favourite movie.
All of these things are available to buy, and there is only one of each. There are many more beautiful brooches, necklaces, bracelets, rings and other gorgeous jewellery in store.
