It's been nice to see my pins out rather than tucked away in boxes and has made me actually wear them a lot more. Most of them are from the 50's and 60's, either given to me or purchased at the flea market. There are a few sellers at the one I like to frequent with good collections and decent prices.
And for kicks, this is my Kindergarten picture. I remember just before I was leaving to walk down our long country drive-way to the bus, my mom pinned on the little blue pin. It's barely visible in the first picture, tucked under the pink dogwood.
(She also cut my long, red hair the night before this picture after I begged her to give me Shirley Temple locks but that's another story.)
Now Blair wears the pin on occasion and so it continues...
