A passion for pins

Glass head pins

Each pin looks like a delicious lollipop...

But don't you dare eat them!

Glass sewing pins are not only beautiful but also functional: they will not melt when you iron over them. I found these at a charmingly old-fashioned sewing supplies store in eastern Germany, but they are not hard to come by.

Glass Head Pins by Prym and another unnamed maker

One of my secret pleasures is feeling the coolness of the glass against the warmth of my skin.

Now tell me, what are your simple delights?
