Love. at. first. sight.
That's what it was when I stumbled upon these oversized decorative rustic safety pins from Ballard Designs. I've been trying to add a little charm to my mudroom - which is really just a laundry room but I like the way "mudroom" sounds better so that's what I call it - and I really think these are going to work perfectly.
They come in a set of 3 for a really reasonable price so I snatched up these giant safety pins this week and can't wait for them to arrive.
I love the product description from the Ballard Designs website:
"Based on real pins we found at a flea market, our hanging Safety Pins are authentic down to the tiniest detail. In fact, they even open! Each style features a different finish and closure design popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries".
Did you read that!!?? They even open! How cute!!
So anyway...like a best friend should do, I HAD to share them with you...just in case you think you want to snatch them up for your mudroom...or laundry room...or even your baby's nursery too!!

What is it with me and old, rusty things?
Do you know when I was first newly married and struggling to make ends meet, (over 20 years ago), I actually recycled wooden cable wire spools to use as side tables and coffee tables. To think that it's actually a "trendy" thing now kind of makes me smile. (and I can say it's trendy because it was actually mentioned in the Keep It Simple book we've been reading this month - how crazy is that?!)
