{love this}: pins & brooches

Lately, I have been obsessed with pins!!  And for once, I don’t mean Pinterest pins but accessories!  I remember my great grandmother’s collection of pins … sparkly Scottie dogs, rhinestone flowers and a big enameled B for her name, Blanche.  She always had a pin perched on her blouse or sweater.  I love that there are tons of Etsy stores full of pins and brooches for a fun, funky pop of color on a plain cardigan, a vintage locket or a sweet felt flower to add some softness!!

Like this fluffy cream colored flower pin from The Winthrop Chronicles Shop …

I have two pins from Sarah’s shop and get compliments every time I wear them :)

Much Love, Ily also has these one of a kind, layered corsages – don’t you just love the buttons and beads?!

I also have a corsage and a red poppy (take a look at it in our 2012 family photos) from this shop and they definitely get much love!

A few of these gorgeous little brooches from A Little Red Ribbon would make a fun statement …

Vintage-y lockets like this personalized bunny locket brooch from Sora Designs are cool …


Add a little rustic whimsy with wood pins like this Sailor’s Sparrow Wooden Brooch from Nevertheless …

This Tweed Bow Pin is adorable and girly and available in The Bow Maker’s shop …


A classic cameo brooch/pin is fine, but you can DIY a cameo brooch with these brightly colored blank cameo brooches from NappyHappy …

  1. I like the flowery fun ones best (just sayin’)

  2. Since I am the one who wore the little Scottie dog pins, I don’t think you should knock them. Over 50 years ago, I was wearing pins like the ones you are featuring … most of them made by my father. Guess he was ahead of the curve, huh?
