Vintage Thingie Thursday!

Yay! Its Vintage Thingie Thursday over at ColoradoLady's Blog. Make sure you skip over there for awhile to check out all the fun neat stuff everyone is posting :)

This week I am showing you my vintage hat pin collection. I can't say I collected too many of these. They were a gift from my Godmother Demetria. They were originally her Mother in laws.

Arn't they all so perfect?

These are my favorite! I love the Greek/Roman coin one (of course!) and the small locket one.

Inside the locket is what looks like a tiny Virgin Mary. So Cute!

I even adore the sweet little pin cushion they are displayed on!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday Everyone!

Stephanie, I love the hat pins, lol...I even bought a couple of these to go in the China Hat pin holder I bought. But yours are way better because you know the history of most of them. I love the pin holder you are using.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I forgot to mention the football.
It was my husband's in high school!!

Now, I don't feel 60, but seeing these old things, sure wonder what i am looking like. =0)

Think i still see myself through rose colored glasses, well, better make that tri-focals!!

Bless you friend,

Oh, S. These are MORE than perfect...they are magnificent. I love every single one of them and think that hat pins are the perfect thing to collect. They are beautiful, especially displayed in that awesome pin cushion...they don't take us nearly as much room as DISHES (why the heck I collect dishes, I don't know!!) I WANNT COLLECT HAT PINS...gosh, where do you even look for them??

I love hat pins..but I don't have a one.They remind me so much of my grandmother...and I've often wondered what happened to hers. Happy VTT and have a wonderful weekend.

You have such a lovely collection! I bet they'd make great hair accessories too, I'm thinking of those chopstick hair thingies. Thanks for stopping by my blog :).

What a beautiful collection of hat pins and they have the perfect home in that unique cushion. I really like all of them!

Dawn said...

Oh my--those things look positively beautiful. And potentially deadly! Perhaps they starred in an Agatha Christie mystery! The pin holder is lovely too.

Oh so pretty. You know they've been around a long time because it's been forever since people wore hats.

Oh Stephanie, those are beautiful! How precious they look displayed on the pin cushion.

When I see hatpins, I think how well dressed women used to be. I think I am failing my ancestors.
