I was a bit of a child hoarder...just ask my family. I saved all kinds of things that I'm just now finding a use for like this vintage handmade swallow pin. I'm not exactly sure how I ended up with it but my money's on my Mom. I attached it to a headband and started wearing it. This is a great way to use old brooches or pins that you never use but never part with. So my assignment is to recycle an old pin--put it on a ponytail holder, scarf, or bag. And then show me!
