my good friend helene (who's band you should give a good long listen to, for sure.) sent me a link to kate broughton's etsy site, squealing that she had bought a meerkat and gold crest bird felted brooch while she was on her latest tour. ummm, meerkat? brooch? click! it's true, meerkat brooches are available along with kate's other handmade animals like a hedgehog, chicken, and a ring tailed lemur (a lemur!). those are just a few brooch offerings on her etsy shop, she's also got totes and more. but don't just stop at kate's etsy shop, check out her site where you'll see her illustrations as well. girl has got a talent bone for sure.
