Roaring Twenties

As a button collector, there are certain styles that I am on the hunt for. For example, the elusive Victorian owl button. And the beauty pictured above. She's a garter button from the 1920's (photo courtesy of the British Button Society). There's even an example of this style button with a police officer holding a stop sign - Get it? (Think about where garters are located:))....

In an ode to the 20's and all the fabulousness of flapperdom, I thought I'd share another favorite photo. I adore this shot... It's an actual photo postcard that a dear friend found for me. Can't you just hear the jazz in the background?
