Pin Collection

Pins are a great addition to many outfits.  I’ve always loved to fasten one to keep a scarf positioned at the neck, or on the lapel of a blazer.  All of these pins have been acquired on eBay or at thrift stores over the years.  My favorite would have to be the four leaf clover (bottom row).  And it is clear I have a ‘thing’ for butterfly pins as well.  They are stored in a small brocade jewelry box, making it the perfect size collection for a small space.  Many of my other collections were left behind in storage like my crinolins, they take up a whole dresser! I also since childhood have collected pins and buttons from the olympics, concerts and around the world etc.  What do you collect?

    What a lovely collection! Of course I’m partial to the four-leafed clover myself 😉 I also love that little birdy with the pearly eggs though! I like to collect vintage hankies and tins.

    Very cute! I love brooches too, I enjoy putting them on hats, scarves, shirts…wherever. I like the crown pin best!
