Beautiful Fabric Flowers by Banana Sue Boutique (Review and Giveaway)

You know how much I love shopping on Etsy. I was recently browsing around there looking for a fabric flower brooch to accessorize my fall wardrobe. I found this lovely item pictured below at the Etsy shop, Banana Sue Boutique.
The colors are beautiful and just scream autumn! It's very versatile and just what I was looking for. The brooch is well-made and arrived very quickly. I love it and can't wait to show it off! Look at some of the ways I'll be incorporating it into my wardrobe...

Amanda, the owner of Banana Sue Boutique, creates gorgeous, handmade, fabric flowers in a variety of colors and patterns. They are available as brooches, clips, bobby pins, or simply left plain so that you can use them as you choose. Do you have a cherished piece of clothing or other item from a loved one or yourself? She can turn that special heirloom item into a custom fabric flower just for you. Her shop also offers headbands and jewelry, as well.

Giveaway:
I'm excited to announce that Amanda has generously offered to give away one of her Autumn Flower Sets (pictured below) to an Alas 3 Lads reader. It's a collection of three fabric flowers - in Black, Orange, and Taupe. The winner will be able to choose whether they want the flowers made into brooches, clips, or bobby pins. The colors are perfect for all the upcoming fall holidays. Aren't they so pretty!
