Enamel Pin Collection Series: Part One

I’ve been meaning to share this collection for so long now, but pins are really difficult to photograph! The ones with gold or silver lines have a habit of reflecting in the light, which makes it harder to see the details of the pin, but I think I’ve finally got some decent photos for this post.

I had to split this collection into two posts because I have so many Sailor Moon pins that I decided to do them in a separate post. This post will be of the rest of my pins, including – but not limited to – pins relating to food, animals, SpongeBob, Pokemon, magical beings, and more.

I tried my best to name every shop that these pins are from, but it’s been a while since I bought some of them, so if you’re wondering about a specific pin, just leave me a comment and I’ll try my best to help!

These four gorgeous pins are the bottom were made by Erika, who I am such a huge fan of. These are from her Drowning Series, which is a series of illustrations about her struggles with anxiety. I related to them and fangirl-ed over every picture on her Instagram so much that we ended up becoming friends 😂

Naturally, when she turned her illustrations into pins, I had to purchase them. At one point I was a little low on funds and couldn’t get the fourth pin, so she sent to me as a present! How sweet is that?! 😭

At one point, I was lucky enough to win these gorgeous mermaid pins in an Instagram giveaway! I was completely blown away; I did NOT expect to win at all. I particularly like the cute little starfish and the two seahorse that are kissing, but they are all gorgeous 😍

I tagged all the makers on their corresponding pins in this post if you’d like to know what sellers made each one. They are all such pretty pins, and they really made me appreciate the mermaid trend that has been going on a whole lot more!

In case you can’t tell, I definitely prefer my pins to be bright and colourful, which is why I only have three black pins – and I only actually bought one of them! The black bunny pin was a freebie that came with a Lulu Bloo order (who is one of my FAVOURITE pins creators of all time!), and I won the circle pin on Instagram, but I can no longer find the person who made it!

I purchased the bossy pin from The Good Twin a couple of weeks ago when I was in quite an empowering mood. I had planned to wear it on one of my collared shirts, but it’s so tiny that I’m not sure people will be able to see it! Daniel had a good analogy for it, actually. He said that it might be tiny because sometimes you feel all tough and strong, but it comes out a little quiet or not at all threatening. Kind of like Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls 🙊

The adorable kitty on a donut above the other pins is by The Pink Samurai, who is another artist that I really admire. She is so adorable and creative, and has the most amazing pin collection ever!

The banana pin that is over the left side is actually one of the first two pins that I ever bought, and it’s from Punky Pins. I’m not even sure why I chose this one, but I do really like bananas and it somewhat reminded me of Andy Warhol!

On to my TV show and food pins! This is one of my favourite sections of my pin board (my #1 favourite section is coming up next!). The heart is the second pin I ever bought, which is from Punky Pins just like the first one I bought, although I can no longer find it online. I got because it reminded me of The Powerpuff Girls heart background, even though it’s completely different colours 😂

I won the Gene Spoons pin on Instagram; it fits in well as Bob’s Burgers is one of my favourite shows. It breaks my heart that only season one is available here in Australia 💔 The Luke’s cup pin is a homage to my favourite character – Luke Danes – from Gilmore Girls, and the Friends frame pin was another one of the first pins I bought, and it’s definitely one of my favourites. It’s such an iconic frame, after all!

The Donut Gary pin has a particular soft spot inside my heart because it incorporates my love of SpongeBob and my love of donuts. The Krusty Krab Pizza pin – which is from Pintoons – also warms my heart each time I look at it as I have loved SpongeBob all my life, and Daniel and I constantly sing the Krusty Krab Pizza song! 😂

I found the The Simpsons Duff Beer pin on clearance one day at Typo, and I bought all the KFC pins as soon as they were released since a) they’re just SO dang cute, b) proceeds from their purchases go to charity, and c) I’m alllll about collecting mementos from my workplace as I genuinely love working there.

Finally, my Pokemon pins! I love this collection so much, although it’s nowhere near the size of my Sailor Moon pin collection. The Sailor Mew, Moon Meowth, Donut Pokeball, Adopt Me Eevee, Angry Jigglypuff, and Alolan Vulpix are all from the shops tagged, but I can’t remember where the rest are from, and unfortunately the shop that sold the Neopolitan Jigglypuff doesn’t exist anymore 🙁

That concludes my non-Sailor Moon pins! Keep in mind that I bought most of pins years ago (as I update this post semi-regularly!) AND some of the pins are limited edition, so a few of these may not be available anymore.

Until next time,
Indya xx
