Friday Find: Hug a Porcupine

With xmas right around the corner (ok, not really...but in the world of international shipping we've got to think of these things early on), I have been scouring Etsy for fun shops with neat gift ideas. Today's find is the shop called Hug a Porcupine and it has, quite possibly, the cutest origami style pins I have ever seen. I'm officially in love - check out my two fav's fox (Sarra I thought of you when I saw this one) and squirrel:

Oh my those are cute! Not a folded paper (but not actually folded paper) brooch fan? Not to worry. Hug a Porcupine has lots of other neat geometric accessories and strangely enough...not a single porcupine in their shop. Hmm. Oh well, back to contemplating more important things! Like which pin I like most! (psst - this is an excellent girlfriend xmas gift from any of you males out there...ahem...fraser...cough cough). Which is your favourite?


  1. Hug a Porcupine must be a really deep metaphor. I love BOTH of these! They're so awesome. The first one looks like a tangram a little bit (you know, those pictures you make out of the 7 or 8 little shapes and somehow it's a math activity?). Awesome!

  2. Oh, I love the squirrel! It's a pity they have sold out of the yellow and grey block necklace - I know someone who would have *loved* that! I hope you get one of these pretty pins for your Christmas ^_^

  3. OH! the fox! LOVES IT! I really need to find a way to wear pins and own it so I don't look ridiculous....
