Collections

To celebrate the season and year we are moving into. This is a rather poor shot of my presidential button collection that I recently got out of the drawer and mounted. The buttons were so shiny I had a lot of trouble with light and reflections.

I got started in this with my Grandmother who was a staunch Republican. It would always shock me when she actually unwrapped from its protective paper a Democratic button to give to me.

Have a great weekend.

What a wonderful collection you have Mike. We have a few of those buttons too that we have collected. I'm glad you mounted them. So many of our collections are in drawers and boxes still. We can't decide if we want them back up in our new house. They may end up on Ebay in the future.
Good shot inspite of the glare.

A great photo of a really neat collection. My grandparents were staunch Republicans, but they were registered as Democrats, so they could vote for the Democrat most acceptable to them in the primary elections. So sneaky :)

Good to see your grandmother's collecting practices were non-partisan :)
