I'm back and am very relieved to have finished my tax returns so now I can bury my head in the sand and forget about them for another year! Now, back to much more fun stuff, I found Pollen Textile's lovely work on Etsy recently. It's so delicate and pretty. Julie is a French Designer based in Canada and studied textiles in Paris. You can see the influence of Paris in her lovely brooches - the delicate, romantic and beautiful.
