A Christmas Button for You

I have a special button to show you today.  It is an
antique Christmas button with a mistletoe pattern!

Here is this beauty–  I bought it at Portobello Market in London
last summer.  It measures one and a half inches in diameter.
It is ceramic with handpainted mistletoe twigs and white
berries.  There are eight rhinestones around the edge for
a special dazzle.    What a button!

    The only thing better than an exquisite mistletoe button is four of them. Perhaps if you sew one to your hat, you will get a Christmas kiss!

    They’d be pretty on a little green jacket, wouldn’t they?
