This week’s Happy HeART Giveaway is so perfect! On the artists’ retreat I just returned from, some of the women I was with convinced me to “funktify” – in essence, to be brave and bold enough to add a little funky-fabulousness to my look. I branched out yesterday by wearing a bunch of sparkling bangles on my wrist (baby steps, people). I could totally swing wearing a brooch to add a little pizazz to a coat, sweater, purse or hat…especially one as beautiful as this!

Clearly, I can’t win this beautiful Midnight Blue organza brooch from Dana of Wynzia…but you can! This one is approximately 3 inches in diameter, with about 15 layers of organza in 3 different colors and a whimsical collection of glass seeds beads at the center. The brooch is attached to a silver-plated lapel pin so you can stick it anywhere.

Turns out midnight blue is one of Dana’s favorite colors (check out all the gorgeous colors in her Wynzia etsy shop and facebook page!). She says, “One of my favorite moments of the day is that lovely time between day and dusk.  The color of the sky at that time is my favorite hue of blue, and my husband has even dubbed it Dana Blue.  This brooch calls to mind that amazing, mystical color.” So, now I’m curious….
