Thanks for the prompt each Saturday, Linda!<3
Pins … have I got pins!
I’ve had and worn pins since I was a kid, and I still have some of them. I have collected a few over the years, too, and like wearing them from time to time.
Pins, sometimes also called brooches, are fun. There are lots of variety in shapes and subjects to choose from, too. You can find them for holidays, birds, political (sometimes called buttons – but they are pins, too), animals of all kinds, souvenir pins from concerts you attend, and I’m sure many more kinds. They can add a fun flair to what you wear, and/or make a statement of something you’re in favor of. There are even little machines you can buy to make your own created pin!
I did try to find out the difference, if there was one, between a pin and a brooch. Can’t remember it exactly, but it was ‘all brooches are pins, but not all pins are brooches’. However, they both are decorative jewelry worn on your clothes.
Well, I have both, or all, or whatever you want to call it. I have fun ones, and antique fancy ones. I’ve bought them myself, and have also received some as gifts.
Here are a very few of the many I have.
- Childhood pins – letter B, golden horse, black poodle dog, honor society pin
- another golden horse, a red cross beginning swimmer pin
- five different cat pins
- three button pins (political, concert, souvenir)
- scarab beetle pins
- Antique oval brooch – gold filigree edges, yellow roses on white background
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
