I want to get one of these pins so I can wear it in early November each year.
Just e-mailed them to see IF they handle shipments to the U.S. Might be too late for this year.
But, I now have another item I can tell Deanna to get me for Christmas. Can’t make up my mind about the underlined Buckley or the Reflective Ruby to the left of it. Might have to do what my adoptive mother did when she was forced to make a choice like this. I will have to get both!
