    • Absolutely adorable

      I bought one of these pins a long time ago and I just had to let everyone know how well-made and unique it is. Great with a casual blouse or shirt; I've worn it on a scarf and pinned it to my fabric purse as well. No one who sees it has been able to resist asking about it.

    • Not suitable

      This is a sweet item, really cute. However not suitable to give as a gift. It's too cheap looking.
