Inspiration . . .

A peek at my "patriotic" stash.
I love these early pinbacks . . . some of the sayings are quite a hoot!
Some are not actually political pins . . . they were cigarette premiums.
A little pinback enclosed in a pack of cigarettes to entice sales.
(NOT, NOT, NOT a good thing!)
But . . I can't help collecting them as the sayings are quite fun!
(A few of which will be in my collection forever!)

Enjoy the pics and I hope to see you this evening for the web show!
8pm Easter time!

...Oh my gosh, that "stick out your ears your falling thru your collar" pin is just too funny! I laughed out loud on that one...

...And the "won't you be my teddy bear?" is just so fitting for

...I love stuff like this. I can peruse a collection for hours! Thanks for sharing! :o)

...C'mon showtime!

...Blessings... :o)
