Objects of my Obsession

I have a collection of old flower pins. I can't explain it, but I just love them.

It started about 5 years ago when our neighborhood had a garage sale. Our neighbor across the street is an older lady and she had two flower pins for sale. I bought them for 25¢ each and I was hooked. I started wearing them and I got quite a few compliments. So I bought more. And more. And then in the meantime flower jewelry really became "in." So I added some new ones too. But most of mine are vintage. Most are pins, but I also have quite a few earrings, one ring and one bracelet.

I just love their colors.

And their vintage-y charm.

What I need is a good storage idea. I'd love to both store them and display them--at least some of them. I think they're so cool they need to be shown off.

Do you have any ideas?

Keep in mind I have curious hands around--always!

Look mom! Pretty!

Hands off mama's jewelry, boy.

Any ideas? A shadow box of some sort? A fabric colored memo board? What would make a good backer?


  1. found this link on an idea for your pins... i'm looking around and will check with other bloggers http://www.ehow.com/how_2203420_creatively-display-pin-collection.html
