There's nothing that can brighten a gray day like finding a vintage Scottie pin.
I had one like this when I was a child. It was a favorite of mine, but like many a childhood possession, one day I looked for it and it was gone, lost forever, and soon forgotten.....until I saw this one in a glass case at the antique store. I could hardly wait for the merchant to unlock the door and hand the small treasure to me. "There you are" I thought to myself, knowing all the while that it wasn't actually the one that I had lost so many years ago, but it felt like my long lost friend, just the same.
I decided that it was the perfect accent for the pocket of this apron of the same era. Very "Mary Engelbreit" don't you think?
I hope you find a treasure to spark a sweet memory as well.
