Anchor & Shell

Spotlighting emblems of the sea this week, here's a pair of bright cherry-red buttons in the shape of an anchor and a seashell. The anchor has the animated curves of a model sailor's tattoo while the shell possesses a realistic, ridged texture. Both tested positive for Bakelite. Now while we're on the subject of nautical-themed buttons, here's a line from one of my favorite poems by e.e. cummings:   

for whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea

Until the seas run dry,
-Sherbert McGee
