pin review: mousemoth by minnow & moss

My menagerie of pins continues to grow, broadening into a bestiary of the most fantastic creatures! The newest member of my merry band of enamel revelers is this gorgeous leafy creature–a mousemoth by Minnow & Moss.

It’s been many a year since I darkened the door of a certain extremely popular microblogging site, but in the days that I did, I used that platform exclusively to discover enchanting artists. Among those lovely illustrators kindly introduced to me through Tumblr was Olivia Chin Mueller: now you too can spend hours poring over her magical portfolio!

Anyway, Minnow & Moss is the combined efforts of Olivia and her mother Tracye, and they have a variety of beautiful pins for sale. I bought this mousemoth as a seconds-sale item, which usually means the pin has some kind of minor flaw (hence the discounted price)–though I can’t for the life of me figure out what it might be! This mousemoth is perfect just the way she is.

Viewed from the right angle, the mousemoth is illuminated by a delicate golden glow!

She’s a tiny creature, perfectly sized for hanging out on your fingertips.

The beautiful script font of the Minnow & Moss logo even puts in an appearance on the reverse of the pin.

It’s springtime and I’m basically wearing my trench coat every day, so I am happy that this little khaki-matching friend can accompany me everywhere! I hope the rest of my pins won’t get jealous at my blatant favorites-playing–they’ll get their own turns soon enough.

(And now this has taken an odd “unnecessarily anthropomorphizing my pins” turn, so I think I’ll end things here. Have a good weekend!)
