Cath Kidston Little Flower Buds Owl Brooch

I'm sorry to say, I have a soft spot for many materialistic things in life; novelty handbags, printed dresses, colourful eye make up, pretty notebooks, quirky jewellery, Alice in Wonderland memorabilia, and anything Cath Kidston, to name but a few. They all send my heart all aflutter.

Now, show me quirky jewellery from Cath Kidston, and I'll be all over it like syrup on a stack of pancakes. I'm ever so slightly obsessed with their resin brooches, and have been collecting them for a few years now. Sadly, they only bring out two or three a season, at most, so my collection is a small one of eight, but I still find myself regularly keeping my eyes peeled on their website in the hope of finding a new design to love.

I was excited to discover that a new brooch had finally popped up in their first early Autumn drop last week; a navy and grey floral owl from the new 'Owls and Flowers' collection. I couldn't help myself and bought one immediately, along with another new notebook in the sale. They arrived a few days later and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. 

The Little Flower Buds owl brooch is one of the cutest brooches I've ever seen, and fits in perfectly with the other designs in my collection. It has a navy, pink, and grey floral print as the base, with grey wings, a cream face and breast, and little blue eyes- one open, one closed in a wink. 

Like the others, it's made out of strong, sturdy resin, which is hard-wearing, and easy to clean if it gets a bit grubby. It's just under two and a half inches long, so it's a great statement piece that will work with all kinds of outfits, and if my other Cath Kidston brooches are anything to go by, it'll be a great conversation starter, and should attract a lot of compliments, too. It's adorable!

The great part is, it was so affordable at only £8, so it didn't even break the bank! I think they're so reasonably priced, especially when you compare them to the similar Erstwilder brooches which retail around the £20 mark. I only wish Cath Kidston would bring out a few dozen designs each season, so I could build up a big collection. I think they'd make a killing if they did!

As yet, I haven't been able to find any trace of any other new Cath K designs that could be released this Autumn, but I'm hoping a few more brooches will appear over the next few months. I'd love it if they brought out some hedgehog, fox, and deer brooches to tie in with the new 'Forest Animals' range. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Until then, I know I'll be wearing my awesome little owl to death, along with all of my old favourites. They really are the best brooches ever!

Are you a fan of Cath Kidston's brooches?
