Wow, I can't believe I've shared nine collections so far! That sounds like a lot, but I still feel like I heaps to show you - my cookie jars, my money boxes, my books, my novelty salt and pepper shakers, etc..
My Sailor Moon collection, my cups/mugs collection, and cake moulds and cookie cutter collection all need an update too - and far better photos! I cringe every time I look at the latter two! I can't believe my cake moulds post is my most popular post?!
Anyway, I've been meaning to share this collection for so long now, but pins are surprisingly hard 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, which will be coming shortly. Today's 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 if you're wondering about a specific pin, just leave me a comment and I'll be happy to help!
These are a few of my extra pins which aren't clustered in a theme like the rest of my collection. The two on the left are by Erika, who I am such a huge fan of. These pins 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 being friends! 😂
The adorable kitty on a donut 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! I definitely wouldn't mind being her. The banana pin is one of the first two pins that I ever bought, both of which are 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!
I was lucky enough to win these gorgeous mermaid pins in an Instagram giveaway! I was completely blown away. I particularly like the cute little starfish and the two seahorse that are kissing, but they're all gorgeous, and I'd like to give them their own mermaid-themed display board in the future.
I tagged all the makers on the corresponding pins in this post if you're interested in getting some for yourself. They are all gorgeous pins, and they 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 though; 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.
On to my TV show pins! The heart is the second of the two first pins I ever bought from Punky Pins, 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. The Luke's cup pin is a homage to my favourite character - Luke Danes - from Gilmore Girls, and the Friends frame pin was one of the first pins I bought, and it's definitely one of my favourites.
The Donut Gary pin was also one of the first additions to my collection, which I got because it incorporates my love of SpongeBob and my love of donuts. The Krusty Krab Pizza pin was a recent-ish purchase from Pintoons. It's unavailable now, but they have heaps of SpongeBob pins to choose from! I had to get this one though since Daniel and I constantly sing the Krusty Krab Pizza song.
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, Neopolitan Jigglypuff, Moon Meowth, Donut Pokeball, Adopt Me Eevee, and Alolan Vulpix are all from the shops tagged.
The rest are either from Really Big Dill or The Sunday Co! Since taking these photos, this adorable Jigglypuff pin arrived in the mail, which I love because it features her signature "Puff!" from the show (in case you can't tell, I really love Jigglypuff)!
That concludes my non-Sailor Moon pins! Keep in mind that some pins are limited edition so a few of these may not be available anymore, although I'm pretty sure most of them are. My Sailor Moon pins feature a lot more limited edition pins that aren't available anymore, but you'll have to wait for part two to see that extremely extensive collection.
Until next time,
