      Wonderful octopus!!

      That is such a cool brooch! Who would have thought of an octopus brooch?! I also love the fact his tentacles look like trailing seaweed? It's the really rich emerald color that helps them look plant like too I think?

      Thank you Scott for your awesome compliment for my unusual octopus find, multiple arms out in embrace :)

      I know Lauren, is this not super cool, I bought it yrs ago & who knew it's like a classic today! If you look at a real octopus they're not too pretty and are rather scary, so that Museum definitely improved their look - the head reminds me of a Martian, and yes the tentacles are very seaweed-like and such a pretty pearlized green. Thank you for your fantastic praise

      Penny I'm so glad you love my quirky octopus, thank you for your delightful comment

      Thanks much Phil for your marvelous compliment for this octopus, agree that this ocean creature is most beguiling and mysterious!

      Andrea thank you for your lovely praise, I will have to get up the nerve to wear this eye catcher - how about to a seafood restaurant lol :)
