    I've posted the 1940's Coro pin before. Here's a cute Damasene fly (circa 50's-60's). They are just over 1". I pinned them to a padded tablet case my sister made for me. (I love books on tape.) Flight attendant last week made a comment how sweet they were. Always nice to get a comment. Originally I pinned my 1960's tin litho bugs, but one broke - can't lose those beauties..... https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/76318-if-something-bugs-you

    I put tape on the back of the fabric for extra safety.

    SO, I will never have the beautiful bug collection that Kyra and other CW friends have but I'm looking to add some buzz to my world. :-)

      I love the Damasene bee, and such a cute way to display them!

      Phil - thanks for loving the bugs!

      Eileen - oh yes, I was surprised. The flight attendant hit the light above my seat - I didn't know why, then she came by to tell me she loved my bugs. We talked a little about vintage. Everyone around us was interested too. It was fun!

      Thomas - when that happens, I really hate buzzing bugs. I have welts from my Texas trip on both ankles....ha ha ha....only a matter of time when I am bitten to shreds here at home. Thanks for your love!
