I'm developing quite the collection of brooches. I put my ornate ones with my tee shirts and my crazy or mod ones with my ladylike cardigans. If you're in a pinch for a gift for mom, look into brooches. This is just a sample of what's online, but you can find them for cheap at any vintage or thrift shop.

You can also secure some brooches in your hair with the aid of bobby pins. It's a cute way to add flash to your summer ponytail.
