patriotic goodies

Sharing a little bit of red white and blue with you today that I found in my parents things. First off, a Lincoln button. Certainly is vintage. Is it a campaign button? Is it a button in support of Lincoln but not a campaign button? I need to research - seems too good to be true - wouldn't that be fun if it were really a campaign button from the 1870's (whoops! 1860's!)?!  And then I found these two unused patriotic Christmas postcards from 1910. My maternal grandmother would have only been around ten years old in 1910, so it would seem that these were my great grandmothers instead then.

Wishing you all a very Happy 4th of July!
