La La Bakelite!
La La Land won six Academy Awards last night and I'm heading back to the movies today to watch this epically spirited Hollywood musical all over again. In celebration of the film, here's a vivacious Bakelite button at rest on a piece of sheet music. The song here is "Stormy Weather" from the year 1933 and the button is likely from about that time as well. A four-piece zinger, the checkered design of the button sports licorice Bakelite against apple juice Bakelite with the carved underside of the AJ adorned in dots for a look that's hip 'n jazzy.
