Sometimes you just don't feel like smiling. Sure, putting a smile on can actually make you feel better, but I personally prefer to wallow in sadness or frustration for a little first. IT'S CALLED PROCESSING AND IT IS GOOD AND USEFUL. Based on an "original drawing" of a frown the artist drew when he was upset and later made into a chenille patch. These pins are equally big and sloppy and pathetic-cute, but perfect for people who want to keep their emotions a little more private.
Soft enamel. Gunmetal pin with rubber clutch.
Measures (h) 18 x (w) 18 mm.
