My love for buttons dates back to childhood.  As a teen I called them “pins” and collected them from bands, museums, and campaigns.

The other day my mom asked, “Do you want to see your first button?”

Pictured is the badge my parents received in 1985 from the hospital when I was born.  It’s a sentimental keepsake that measures just 2-inches, which makes it easy to hang on to in a memory box.
