Flower Pin Debate

Well, this one is up for debate. I have a pair of these pictures, last year one fell and broke into pieces. It had sat in the closet for months. One day, I was looking at my vintage enamel flower pins. I was thinking.... They are so pretty! How can I display them? Then, a light bulb went off! Oh yes, that broken picture. Well, after a little tlc, here is what it looks like. It now hangs in my bedroom. Hey, at least now I can see those flower pins! The debate is: I liked the picture before and after. What do you think?

What a creative and "green" way to display a collection!
I need to think more "outside the box" like that!
Thanks for the inspiration!

I like it both ways. Nice pin collection and that is a good way to showcase them.

That pin collection definitely deserves a great display piece like that frame! It looks amazing, but I also like the picture too. The frames are just awesome!
Happy WW!

I must say I love the 'after' so much more! I have a couple of those flower pins that my mother passed on to me and I cherish them.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, hope to see you back soon!
