Last year I wrote a column about Christmas pins and I got somewhat obsessed, especially with the vintage variety. I particularly like the idea of a wreath pin. It's a little more unexpected than a tree and the round shape lends itself well as a brooch or a scarf clip. I also did not want something kitschy or tacky like an ugly Christmas sweater. I wanted the pin to be a bit glamorous and sparkly. I found an inexpensive wreath pin with crystals in a tiny store in my neighborhood and I wore it today for the first time. I think it looks pretty good!

The hunt is still on for a vintage Christmas tree pin. I have something very specific in mind that reminds me of my childhood. One of the women in my family must have had one, because I can envision it and I'm determined to find something similar. But, for now, I'm happy with my wreath.
