Badge Collection

This picture is of my badge (called Buttons in the US) collection that I found in my attic.  Some of them were damaged by water when our water tank burst and they went a bit rusty.  The collection consists of badges that I have had from years ago, some I acquired from charity shops and some of the newer ones are from Paperchase.

This one's my favourite though:
For those that don't know, this was from an advert from the 1980's(?) promoting a chocolate caramel sweet called Rolos (Nom, Nom!)  The advert finished with the question, 'Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo?'
Perfect for Valentine's!

And the reason I'm showing you these?  On the brilliant blog, artysville Aimee was showing us her button collection and wanted to see some of ours - so here they are.   Have you got some to show?

Back with some crafting later,
