I love really pretty vintage pins. Most of these are from thrift stores, with the exception of the bumblebee and the star (both from my grandmother); along with the cardinal pin (from my uncle). They're great for decorating my apartment - either attached to a bulletin board, next to a picture frame, sitting in a dish, etc. - or you can always use them to revamp an outfit.

on dresses that are a bit too big/need to be taken in.
|This one is from a flea market. I was told it is from the early 1900's. It was reverse-engraved from the back of the pin. There is so much detail - it's amazing!|
