which clothespins set I like the best! I have both in my cart, but will only allow myself to purchase one.

Amy Tangerine Clothespins

Maggie Holmes Clothespins

Maggie Holmes comes with 13 clothespins and I love the "Lovely" pin, but I really love the blue and the arrows used in the Amy Tangerine set. Which one did you buy???

BTW - I would have posted pictures of these, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it!!! LOL

I haven't gotten either, but if I had to choose, I would go with Amy Tangerine. They seem a lot more versatile to me.

I can't believe I'm actually a runner now!!!!

And even better...I'm a tri-athlete!!!

I didn't buy either but the Maggie Holmes ones make me go "Ooh!" Remember you could stamp or draw on the plainer ones, or make your own with plain colored clothespins and paint. The Amy T stamp set has that arrow.

I like Amy Tangerine's overall collection better. However, I like the Maggie Holmes clothespins over Amy Tangerine.

I'm no help - I just got a couple of the Amy Tangerine ones in a kit, and have no clue what to do with them.

OMG! The Maggie Holmes ones were my first choice. Maybe I should stick with my gut. Although now I'm thinking maybe I should try and make them myself . . . hmm . . .

LOL! I'm trying to edit my cart down to under $75 and I've been obsessing for a couple days now!

What are you using the clothespins for? I think they are really cute, but not sure what I would do with them.

I love them both, but refuse to buy them because I have ssooo many tiny clothespins from years and years ago...

But, If I won the lottery, I would go with the AT ones, even though I like Maggies collection better.

That's the scary part ... I have NO IDEA! I just feel that I should have them in my stash because they are cute.

I have been "building" this cart for over 3 weeks now. Still not sure they'll "make the cut", but BOY ARE THEY CUTE!!

I covered the bigger wooden clothes pins with washi tape. It came out kind of cute. You have to be careful replacing the metal part because the washi tears so easily.

I like both collections but am on the team that says I don't know what I would do with them so I wouldn't buy any.

I saw both of these at Archivers. I went to grab the ones by Amy...but then I couldn't think of a project that I would use them in. So I put them back. I typically always like Amy and Maggie's style, but Amy's were just a tad cuter.

I only have a couple of these that someone gave me, but I have used them to close great bags and on cards. They are a little bulky for normal LOs to me, but you could clip them to the edge of any layer. I might get some plain wood ones and dress them up for a mini I am doing.

I like the Maggie Holmes set more even though I'm a die-hard Amy Tan fan. The sayings on the Maggie Holmes are so darn cute!

I have not seen these in person but they look like full size clothes pins????

I bought my dd some painted ones when she had her baby to hang baby clothes in the closet that wouldn't fit on childrens hangers.. it was very cute... but other than that I couldn't think of what to use them for????

I would choose the Maggie Holmes clothespins. I'm a sucker for anything with music on it. Actually, that's what just first caught my eye. Looking closer, I still like the MH ones better. You can't go wrong with either, though.

I' saw them in person at CHA and they are not full-size. I think they're maybe like 2 inches long?

I might be mis-remembering but my memory is that they're still pretty big and chunky. I LOVE them, but so far I plan to pass on them because I'm worried they're going to be too big for what I like to have under a page protector. I'd love to find out I'm wrong because they're super cute!

Love the Maggie ones! These are tiny. I started to buy some Dear Lizzy ones at Target last night. They are so cute!

Those are both cute I have both, but I found the AT ones were better quality.

OMG - I just tallied up the comments - it looks like it's a tie . . .

9 votes for Amy
9 votes for Maggie

2 (maybe 3) votes for don't buy either LOL

I still can't make up my mind!! I do like the sayings on the Maggie clothespins - but I like the colors better on Amy's!
