  1. Love love this bracelet...even more, I love that horse you have added as your profile ? pic. (is it called a profile photo?) I copied a link for you about when Alfred Philipe was with them, which ...
  2. All aboard the train! I'll take time to hear them all now. I'll add some with mr neil too ;) Thanks Thomas!
  3. Very cool. Haven't seen one of these around in quite some time!
  4. I love all Tango glass, I've found that the black just sets off every color it's together with! Gorgeous!
  5. These are amazing. Not only did you find one, you were fortunate enough to find two! That seems amazing in itself!
  6. I can't even read the letter through, I don't quite understand it.
  7. No idea. The only info I could offer you is that here in California, there is a street named Greenleaf in the city of Whittier??? Maybe there is some correlation?
  8. Ok, I got it now ;) I didn't see her before...yes, I love, love her too.
  9. Interesting that's for sure... kind of looks like a skunk...a foo dog...a lion??? so many options. I want to know if your picture now is a Barbie??? That's one I've never seen. Love her though.
  10. Yes, that's a very nice piece. So often when one is lucky enough to find an ink well, it's broken. That's how it has been for me anyway and I end up passing on them. Great find.
  11. Glad to see you are feeling a bit better! Don't worry about anything Karen...we all love you!
  12. How fun! Mischievious to say the least! My kids are that age too. I miss the days they were young now. Back then, it was like I wanted them to hurry and grow up! Love those old memories. Ever be...
  13. Hi Michele, welcome to CW! Sorry to hear of your parents's never easy. It's funny how some keep certain things, this most likely says to me that you enjoyed your mothers sense of humor!...
  14. LOL! Alan, please don't tell me you are surprised! haha Ok, well maybe you are but I am not surprised one bit. You have the luck, the eye and are gifted when it comes to all types of collections. ...
  15. OMG I love, love this piece! And the whole story is just great, then to find out the age of the necklace itself...WOW!!! Great find Jean! And you are so fortunate to have found a jeweler you can tr...
  16. That's a good size brooch too! Good thing the dealer had a good sense of humor! It amazes me how little scrap silver is worth, just doesn't seem to make sense at all.
  17. Lol, that's cute...petting his nose! He probably had a mate and they were once used as bookends. I'm glad the previous owner didn't want them anymore, for your sake. He just needs TLC to keep from ...
  18. He is a little cutie!
  19. These are great and your photo makes them better! Nice job.
  20. Thank you to all that stopped in to see this oddity, yes, I'm talking about the paperweight! haha xoxo
  21. Yes Phil, I will be looking for one soon to see how cool it looks then. I'll give a shot at a photo to post like that. Thank you!
  22. Hi Rick, I sort of figured that mostly from the bottom but have to say, they have done a real good job at this one. Thanks for stopping in!
  23. Malkey, I agree. I wouldn't have thought I would get something like this but it's just so cool I couldn't pass it up! Thanks.
  24. Rose, that is what my niece told me that a lot of people put the light boxes under them. I'll have to see if I can find one and photo it that way. I'll add it when I do get one. That would be reall...
  25. Fort, the answer to your question is no. It's a grouping of bubbles that make the shape. It's very interesting to see, it actually looks like there are two or three jellyfish in there. It's a group...
  26. A gal that loves her bird!
  27. I love both of them. Simple and elegant!
  28. Thank you for the love Thomas! Much appreciated ;)
  29. I knew you would Karen. I wasn't positive if they for sure were China or Japan. Either way, I can't fathom the idea of painting like this. I figured it was newer but I just couldn't pass it up!
  30. Not sure about the bear, looks like the collectible one and that chair is intricate, ratan of all things. I would have never known they were made way back then.
  31. I'm interested in that man made cave??? Or is that a well or what? Looks awesome.
  32. It totally is a regrouping for you! Including the waterfall, it's a waterfall of flowers and very beautiful. I have never seen one like this, all in it's simplicity! I thought it was a vase when I ...
  33. Hey Deano, this is stunning! Perfect representation of a Geode and gorgeous color combo! Glad you were able to ID it but that doesn't surprise're good at that.
  34. Kevin, I love this charger! I believe it wasn't until I came here to CW that I learned about them myself. As you know, my great Uncle Frank was an artist, a commercial artist as an employee, but on ...
  35. Are you kidding, your photos are excellent! Looks like it's floating on a cloud. Absolutely love the colors.
  36. Excellent photos btw!
  37. I missed this one. It is gorgeous, as always...I totally see the attraction to Quezal! I'll get there one day ;)
  38. Oh wow Karen, I am so sad to hear this! Yes, thank you for sharing that and I am sorry for your loss as well as her family and other friends. You are right, she knew what she knew and let you know i...
  39. Phil, thank you for stopping in! Did your area warm up? Ours did!!! Heatwave here, I'm melting!!! lol!
  40. This is such a sweet photo. You have quite a knack for picking these out, don't you?!?
  41. I love this too. Just make sure that when you do hang it that the wire, leather or whatever material is used to hang it from is not very long. Well, here anyway, we have to watch for the earthquakes...
  42. Now this is just another one of your fabulous pieces in your collection. Gentleman at work. I would imagine this is quite rare. Absolutely love it!
  43. I am right there with everyone else that has loved and commented on this piece! It's very appealing in every way. The color combo is just amazing!!!
  44. It's funny when I've missed your posts, I go to your page then I can't decide which item to pick first! I do love this vase. That bird caught my eye to...I'll have to go back to it. I've got someth...
  45. We'll just keep it at the top of the page till one of the glass experts come along. There are many here and this is a very nice vase. Love that design!
  46. Looks like you came to the right place!
  47. Hmmmm. Looks like someone had a good idea! LOL! get it? You know, lightbulb? Ahhh well...
  48. Sweet! Looks like you need that bracelet ;)
  49. That red looks like Bakelite! Like the necklace piece Valentino made for me. Where is she at? haha I will have to ask her to come look at these, she's gonna love them too! She'll know what they are.
  50. Wow, that's pretty awesome! Looks to be in great condition too!
