Pin me!

On the wall in front of my desk at home is a 2 ft by 3 ft corkboard where I pin anything and everything I (1) want to keep in front of me all the time, (2) don't have a proper place for, or (3) have a place for but don't want to bother with immediately.

Anyway, I was staring at it earlier, thinking that I really have to clean it up—transfer the telephone numbers and email addresses, get a folder for the newspaper clippings—you get what I mean. And also that I really have to get some prettier pushpins and replace the yicky cheap plastic ones I currently have there. Who says utilitarian has to be boring, right?

So I went surfing and looked for some unique and whimsical pushpins. Here's what I found:

People-shaped aluminum pushpins
CB2 from Crate and Barrel

Etched nickel silver

Jim Clift Design

Colorful pushpins designed for children
Cottage Classics Design

Japanese-inspired wooden toadstools
