One of My Favorite Buttons

This isn't the prettiest button I've ever owned, but it one of my favorites. I used to collect vintage WWII Home Front items- like the red white & blue trimmed frames that families used for their sons and boyfriends military pictures, the "son in the service" star flags that families put in their windows, and sweetheart jewelry. This button is "V" for Victory and made of Bakelite.

What a great button blog. This is my first time checking this one. I usually check your other "scrappin" blog. I tried making those wonderful coin roll tags. I fell in love with the idea. Thanks. Check out my version!! They will be great gifts. Would you mind if I made your blogs links from mine? I really enjoy your work. Thanks
Lisa
