Happy Mother's Day

I love this big ol' heart brooch!  Of course it would appear that you could wear it as a necklace too.
It would be perfect for Frida Kahlo.
Today I would love to have it and I would write Mom right across the centre.
Happy Mother's Day to all the two and four legged Moms!

You just never know where you will see interesting jewelery.  This is the store in Paris that I photographed and found the jewels.  I was attracted to the paint colour and the dangly leaves and lights for the sign.
