Hello—Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥♥♥ Here are some glitzy buttons with minerals and
gemstones to amuse us on this day full of love for everything –especially buttons.
Honk! three times if you recognize any of these buttons from my past posts . . .
I think you’ll be able to click on photos to enlarge . . .
To make the photos relevant, the size of the large button in the center with the
turquoise stone is one and a half inches in diameter. You can judge the others from
that one. There is quite a variety–I’ll try to sort them out a bit for you.
In this next photo, the three buttons on the top row
are fairly new, but pretty. The one on the left in second
row, is *plastic* –a stranger in this group, but all are
Some of the oldest buttons in the grouping are selected
for this next photo:
That large button at bottom left is missing some of
its stones, too bad, but I still like it a lot. It is back-
marked “E.M. Paris”. I bought that one at the
Portobello Market in London. If you collect buttons
(I hope you do–or will!)) you know that each button has
a little story to tell—where you bought it, found it, etc
and that’s a big part of the fun of collecting.
The next photo has my favorite of the bunch. Yes,
it’s true, that little red and pearl button top right
is my favorite. Go figure. I’m not against the
antique pearl and brass one bottom right either.
That one came from the Inez Wingrove collection–
remember that post? She was a relative of General
George Custer. She had great buttons.
Finishing up here with two photos of glitz–and
wishing you a sweet Valentine’s Day. Thanks
for stopping by! VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITES!
