Spring is here and my thoughts always go to flowers....
Thanks to my friend Kim at County Line Road, I have another collection of pins -
Kim turned me on to collecting vintage Flower Basket Pins and I've got a few.....
I display them on a pillow, the same way that I display my Christmas Tree pins,
only these I can keep out to enjoy year round.
Here are the pins on a pillow...
Some close-ups of the pins, starting with the pins that have
cabochon (shaped and polished but not faceted) stones.
This pin has marquis shaped stones for the flower petals.
One of my favorites - so much intricate detailing- lots of prong set stones and iridescent colors.
Very retro - love the Lucite green flowers!
Lavender dogwood blossoms - hand painted petals with rhinestone centers.
These multicolored stones remind me of Christmas...
Pearls. For every season!
This pin is another of my favorites. It's a little three dimensional work of art.
Love the luster finish on the vase. Sooo pretty!
Very elegant, with softer colors...
Silver and red. Simple.
This one would be sweet for Easter.
And a bitty butterfly for the fun of it!
This pillow isn't one you would want to rest your head on.
Just feast your eyes...
Be sure to visit Kim at County Line Road to see her collection of basket pins
and her fabulous display table. I wonder what I will be collecting next???
