Enamel pins have become something of a cultural phenomenon, as crafty-minded people turn to the miniature accessories to give things like backpacks, shoes, and jackets a touch of personalization. From a terrarium to a perfectly-frosted cake, here are a dozen pins that we think are very "Good Things."
The tiny tokens of Justine Cristle Gilbuena, who illustrates her own custom pins and patches, includes a vintage Singer sewing machine, a watering can bursting with blooms, and there's even a little cat curled up for a nap! (Imagine our surprise when we came across this Martha Stewart one amidst her treasures!)

Being able to whip up decadent desserts and treats that are as beautiful as they are tasty is a pretty major part of Martha's repertoire, so it's only right that a pin featuring a decked out cake should be a top pick for fans.

As an avid animal lover, Martha has always had a soft spot for one particular dog breed: French bulldogs. She actually added two more – Bete Noir and Creme Brûlée – to her clan just this year. Even if you're not quite ready for real life puppy parenthood, you can at least embrace a little Frenchie love with this ultra cute pin.

Sure, a safety pin speaks to Martha's crafty side, but this pin also echoes a kind of simplicity that's pretty common to Martha's approach to everything. Because if there's anything we learn from Martha on the regular, it's that you don't need a ton of fancy tools to create something magnificent; just a couple of basics and a whole lot of creativity.

Martha's love for pierogis is rooted in fond memories of her mom prepping the popular Polish dish. So whether you're a fan of a traditional cabbage dumpling or something sweeter, like blueberry pierogis with spiced sour cream, this pin is the perfect way to honor a Martha family favorite.

Martha is all about the outdoors, especially when she's spending some time up at Skylands, her home in Maine, where she is especially fond of hitting the trails for a good hike. And of course, if you're going to take to the outdoors, you've got to have the right gear.
