Christmas Tree Pins

vintage costume jewelry Christmas tree pins
Today's photo mosaic was created with some of my costume jewelry Christmas tree pins.   Most of these pins are probably the 1950's or 1960's, although a couple are much newer.

The one above is probably my current favorite.  It is unsigned.

This one is a contemporary pin from the last decade or so.  I think my Dad gave each of my sisters and my mom this same tree pin.

How fun! Some of those look like pins I remember my mother and grandmother having...even some my mother in law still pulls out. You've got a great collection.

Love your pins. I think they dress up a coat or sweater for Christmas.

What a great collection! They are all so pretty. I remember always having a Christmas tree pin on my coat when I was growing up. I still have a few of them and one of my mother's. I loved seeing all of yours together in a mosaic. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie
