Okay - here's something gaudy and fun. Something my Grandma might have worn on her polyester leisure-suit jacket. Actually - she had great taste I found these elsewhere. Now are becoming quite collectible - and I only have these. Honest I swear!

Pic 1: 4"x1.75" It looks great on a simple vintage sweater. Picture 2: 2" orange clusters- and I LOVE both of these.

Pic 3: Isn't this a great cigar box? And perfect for me because I was born in Tampa.

    Hi Newtimes and Zowie for your love and nice comments. The box is actually a cigar box 7"x6"x2" and I used it to show off my pins. Tampa, Florida is fairly close to the tobacco states (Virginia, N & S Carolina) and also Cuba. This box held "tip cigars - mild as a cigarette, priced at 2 for .15, .6 but not more than .8 cents!"

    Zowie - I'm a retail clothing merchandiser - I go into stores and group my products together (pretty boring actually can't do anything creative) but in my own home I enjoy showing things off and change stuff around all the time. I have really great wall art and some nice old furniture and little "displays" where I show off my latest obsession.

    Nadia thank you for enjoying my collecting world - we will get together sometime and you will be very afraid when you see how messy my crib is...does anyone say crib anymore? Or pad or lair?

    Love them! I just might have a couple of these lowers hanging around...I think they are fun.

    Val... Seriously doubt your crib is scary... You have beautiful collections and I am sure with your talent, it's just perfect.

    Thank you Amber - these were dimestore items - so many of them out there. A couple of times I've seen whole groups of them on ebay and some matching earrings. Used to be cheap but now they are more than the $5.00 rule.

    Thanks Nadia! It's much less than perfect around here but thank you for the nice comments. Most of my collections are organized in old 1940's hosiery boxes or shoeboxes so I can FIND things! Ha, ha - still lose stuff now and again....
