Toggle Tuesday: Christmas in July
Season's Greetings! Long-time curiosities in my collection of Bakelite buttons, this pair of merry toggles in cherry red and forest green have always looked to me like Xmas ornaments. Decorative carvings around their midriffs give them an air of Yuletide shapeliness and wouldn't these look cool on a snowman's vest? If I were to name these festive buttons I reckon they'd be Holly and Blitzen, but in spite of their jolly appeal I'm a bit early with these holiday toggles...
Christmas isn't for another 167 days.
