With Easter coming up and Spring finally here, I decided to share a very colorful and flowery collection this week. Vintage enamel (for the most part) flower pins. I used to pick these up at garage sales or thrift shops for maybe fifty cents ten or more years ago. Today they are very scarce except for Etsy and Ebay where they command a pretty penny. Two of these actually belonged to my grandmother-- two of the more docile styles.
These stick pins were my mother's and are later, from the late 70s-- I do have the end-stopper things around somewhere.
So now that you've seen them. here is a question: what should I do with them? At the moment, they are sadly in a shoebox in my basement. I have had them displayed. Once I stuck some into a styrofoam wreath; that looked nice. Another time I had them "swagged" over a doorway on a crocheted chain. Any other clever ideas? Keep in mind, they do get heavy when grouped together. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Have a wonderful day!
