Today I'd like to introduce you to some of the lovely ladies in my wire name pin collection. I'm particularly attracted to old-fashioned names you don't hear anymore, or the just plain unusual. Things started with the demure Mildred, then came Lucille and...
Lola is a little grubby and her previous owner found her cavorting with the earrings when it came time to send her on, but she seems to have settled in quite well.
Romaine is one of my favourites! I've never met or even heard of anyone called Romaine so I've no idea of its origins, but she is so lovely and delicate I just had to have her.
Sylvia is a very recent addition to the collection and I adore her streamlined look.
Belle has been squashed at some point in her life but she's still a favourite - it was my grandfather's pet name for my grandmother, Isabelle.
Anne is so pretty with her girly curls, she's perfect pinned to a floaty, feminine blouse or fluffy 50s sweater.
The beautifully kept Helga arrived last week and is the most recent addition to my collection.
Aren't they lovely?!!
