A Collection of Pins

I'm fascinated by the number of ladies pins I see at flea markets, estate sales and auctions. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and designs and I always seem to be drawn to them, even though I usually only wear them to close up shirts that show a little "too much" or to off set the waist line of a dress. I can't help myself when I find them! I have a few I'm particularly proud of, including what I'm calling a paste flower that is in excellent condition and absolutely unflawed. Here are some of my favorites.

  1. Those pins are gorgeous. I can see why you're drawn to them.

    I also like the new blog layout! It really reflects what your blog is about. :)
