Pretty Pastel Pins

My enamel pin collection (obsession) started in March this year, when I teamed up with Innabox to share these Cute & Quirky pins. A couple of months later, in May, I blogged about this pretty cool range from Old English Company and most recently I found four more Cool Cute & Colourful Enamel pins from different online shops. I now have a grand total of 17 pins, which has been one of my greatest achievements of 2018, so far. Today, I am going to share with you a selection of pretty pastel pins I have picked up on my travels around the internet.

My first pretty pastel pin is from Laura Talanti, a freelance illustrator and designer, mental health worker, crazy cat lady & cat charity volunteer. Laura has an awesome range of pins including cool cat pins, which I was so tempted to get but I had never seen a cup of tea pin and tea is my life. I also received an extra metal rainbow pin to apologize for a small delay which I thought was such a lovely added touch (and I didn’t even notice the delay to be honest). The next pins I have my eye on in Laura’s shop are The Introvert Club and I’d Rather Be At Home With My Cat – both are absolutely brilliant.

Laura also makes earrings, cards, stickers, badges, magnets, pocket mirrors and patches ranging from the adorable to the motivational. I definitely need more goodies from here! Check out Laura on Twitter and Instagram for her latest updates and offers.

You may have already seen the awesomeness that is Whale & Bird before, as their designs are stocked in places like Paperchase and Scribbler. In fact, I picked up their Crumpet Of Courage postcard a few weeks ago for my Comfort Zone Challenge post. And going further back, Rebecca sent me their brilliant Home Is Where My Cat Is postcard last year when we did the Blogger Christmas Card Swap. Whale & Bird sell humorous, quirky and sometimes rude greetings cards, stationery and gifts from a range of super talented artists. This is the fantastic Triceretops pin by Anna Alekseeva.

Other favourites include the Be The Person Your Cat Thinks You Are and Stay Curious. You can follow Whale & Bird on social media to keep track of their fun and funky designs: Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest

I spotted this cute Courage Potion pin on Instagram a few weeks ago and knew I needed it in my collection. My ongoing challenge is to push myself out of my comfort zone, be brave and try new things so this pin is the perfect reminder to that. Who doesn’t need a little bottle of courage every now and then. It’s made by the wonderfully talented Joanne Hawker, a Designer & Illustrator from Somerset who is a lover of stripes, tea, all things yellow, imaginary Frenchies called Frank and denim dungarees. She sounds awesome! Joanne has a whole range of fabulous things from cards, prints, pocket mirrors and of course, enamel pins.

I definitely need to get the Ideas Potion enamel pin to go with my Courage Potion as well as The Tools Of Mass Creation which is super cool. You can check out the latest creations from Joanne on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest

Last but by no means least, this is the perfectly positive Good Vibes pin. This is created by onr. who is Rachel Basinger, a designer, creator, blogger, vlogger and new mama (congrats!) who lives in the sunny South of England. onr. stands for OH NO Rachio! and it all started with Rachel’s love for creating handmade gifts for friends & family. Rachel now stocks fantastic cards, prints, stationery, patches, pins and washi tape (washi tape is another obsession of mine!). Every item is made with a lot of love and is cute and bursting with a positive message. 

Other favourites include Be Kind and the Plants & Cats pin. Make sure you follow onr. on social media for more colour and positivity: Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest / YouTube

I hope you have enjoyed having a sneak peak at my pretty pastel pins. I’m excited to add these new additions to my ever growing pin collection. Are you a pin lover? Which one is your favourite? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    These pins are so cool, I’ve always wanted to collect pins and then attach them to something like a denim jacket or a bag or something but what??!! Lol. Have you seen Jemma (Dorkface) has released pretty rainbow pins, they’re lovely! When I eventually get something to put pins onto, I’ll be coming to you for pin shopping advice! 💕

    These are so cute! I’m not a pin collector although I have bought a few from Punky Pins for Flora’s schoolbag – a whale and a dolphin for my wannabe marine biologist 🙂 But I like the sound of the Be the person your cat thinks you are, so I’ll be off for a browse shortly, haha. Lovely pics, thank you for sharing some of your new collection with us! X

    • June 15, 2018 / 9:49 pm

    All of these pins are so adorable and seem perfect for you! My personal favourite would have to be the triceratops, I love little doodley dinosaurs!

    I used to be OBSESSED with pins when I was younger! Reading this has made me want to buy some and attach them to my bag again! These are all so cute, bright, colourful positive little pins I love them! xx
