Hi Karla,

Not much better than playing in the snow with kids and finding treasures at a flea market!

Your button is a chinaman, possibly Dr. Fu Manchu. He was a fictional villain character in the novels series by Sax Rohmer in the early 20th ca.

The button design and materials can easily date this button around the time of his novels. The button material appears to be Celluloid; however, the base of the button might be Celluloid acetate. The face itself is Celluloid.

Always fun to find things we love and spark our curiosity.

Hugs, Tami


Hi Karla, looks like fun in the snow with your little love bugs. We can't complain can we about the much needed snow or rain, but I am ready for a little sunshine hopefully very soon. What flea market did you go to? Was just trying to figure out where you might have gone. Always such fun aren't they. Glad you were able to get Bird Song filled so easily and quickly. I will miss it, just didn't work this year...but will so enjoy hearing all the details. Have a great weekend!! Linda

Looks like the girls enjoyed the snow... I remember when my kiddos loved it and now not so much. Have a great day.


You say "not much." I say pretty and filled with love!

Love the mix of snowy white, cream, and rusty brown (furry brown as well!) in the first photo. Also love the sweetness of Dewdrop sitting on the bearded man's lap, all ready to be assisted with her spin art!
