I am so behind on blogging all of the fun things we have been up to, but there are little peeks on Instagram if you’re interested. 😉
One of my favorite things to look for while flea-ing are fun, vintage pins, which you may have noticed appearances of in other posts. I think it all started with pin trading at Disney and just ballooned. I usually choose pins that represent places we have been or bring back some sort of memories. I like stories and I love finding things that have a story, especially if they represent my story.
Arizona reminds me of visiting the Grand Canyon with friends in 2015, it was so cold and we only had a few hours to spend there, but totally worth braving. The Six Flags pin brings back so many fond childhood memories of all the time spent at Six Flags over Texas with my parents and siblings while growing up. The New Mexico pin reminds me of all the time spent in the state with our wonderful friends, whether it was stopping on the way through to and from California at Christmas, or the three Balloon Fiestas we have now attended together. The Texas with the state flower is definitely near to my heart AND my roots. The Sandia Peak pin reminds me of going to the peak with our friends when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Addison and just enjoying the large portion of the day there, taking in the magnificent views.
I have to mention the glass slipper pin, because as I said, I love stories. 😉 I first spotted it last fall while perusing one of our favorite antique stores in town. I honestly almost walked right past it, but I am glad I looked a little closer. It is a vintage Disney pin that I immediately fell in love with. I did not, however, love the price. I decided to wait it out, even though I was so afraid each time I visited that it would be gone. I watched it for almost a year, until the vendor of the booth priced all their jewelry 50% and I grabbed that thing up quick! I am so excited and can’t wait to wear it on our upcoming trip to Disney.
Do you have any fun collections that you love adding to?
