  1. Love these. The graphics are beautiful! I'm sure you are happy to have them. I look for these little graphic beauties but made a big mistake traveling back home. Heard my name called to return to th...
  2. comett62 - you know you have to share some of that local beach and history with us after posting this cool ring. We want the rest of the story.
  3. Love the organic shape - and I love your photos to support that theme! (maybe, just guessing?)
  4. John - very beautiful. I am sure you enjoy it every day.
  5. Lock? to an oriental art deco jewelry box?
  6. Lovely brooch in a lovely summer setting.
  7. Thanks Rick for enjoying this "machine age" style. I have to stop buying these now. I think I have enough....:)
  8. Thanks betweenthelens!! Yes, probably a sweets tin. I bought it from mgoyal, a very nice seller, but not much English...I think I will hit the mystery solved. Cumi is the sweetest little friend, thank...
  9. If it's from your dad - priceless!
  10. Fort - has it been 7 months??? I love your haul of goodies. Passing up a coyote???You find the best quirky stuff -I love. I am going to post a seagull skull and bones I found on vacation - weird but.....
  11. So beautiful!! Ouch to the wife Anna for destroying the figurines. More to the story and her reason I'm sure.
  12. Sorry to hear about your sweetie's passing. I've been away on vacation and just catching up. I know this is very hard. Hugs and kisses.
  13. Ivonne - Sean is an amazing photographer isn't he!
  14. Love this and the comments. I mostly use pencils too and little bakelite sharpeners when I'm traveling or.....a new electric (Darn!!!) at my home. All my siblings have these attached somewhere in thei...
  15. Very beautiful!
  16. I love it!!
  17. Very pretty Bonnie!

  23. Thank you friends for the loves: Caperkid, Aura, Kyra, Sean, pops, Bonnie, Kevin, Nicefice, Ken, Lentilka, Thomas, Mike, Karen, Tassie!
  24. Hmm...Malachite is an opaque stone, but this looks semi-translucent. Sardonyx, chalcedony? Lovely green whatever it is!
  25. Thanks Karen for your comment.
  26. Hi Nicefice - I have been collecting more of those green dice. Thanks for getting it!
  27. Thanks for the beautiful comment lentilka!! And thanks for loves Kevin, nicefice and Ken!
  28. Yes, Game of Thrones creators aren't just art history majors for nothing! Plus, they looked at Vincent Price too....
  29. I hope you find the parts - I think someone will help you. You are the right person to have this machine. I love my old sewing machine - mainly because I enjoy sewing! Mending things...not so much.
  30. Wow Ken, I was on vacation and missed these - love them!
  31. Thanks Bonnie, I have some more cool broken pieces that I need to put together. I'm always looking at the parts and pieces, bits and baubles. Too fun! Thanks pops52 for your love!
  32. Thanks Kyra - the small red rondells are original (and glass) - which is unusual for this plastic necklace, and those red "bumps" you see between each are the Val-itization beads....thanks for comment...
  33. Thanks Sean! No, I just bought and fixed this one. Plan to wear it with my plain red geometric http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/155395-celluloid-1920s-40s-red-choker - definitely my kind of sty...
  34. Wonderful postcard! I just emailed you a current listing for a cute doll. Not sure if it is your type or not.
  35. Hi Shepuz - I think this machine was loved and used! Would be so interesting if it could tell us all it has seen and done.
  36. Beautiful Sean!
  37. Thank you aura and Caperkid for fast loves!
  38. Could be 90's - which is vintage right? Love these. Bonnie - I wear glasses too - darn but I know what you mean! Keepers martika, very nice.
  39. I put a whole bunch of 925 crosses on a sterling bracelet which made a fun charm bracelet. Love yours!
  40. I think this is a very popular item from a set which included other colors: white, red, black, green or orange....I remember these sets were popular in 80's-90's at department store - sold as stone br...
  41. Oh yes! Love this beauty.
  42. Love your Taz - and the background display too.

  47. Love your bunny story! Thanks to you and yours for saving her too. wink and smile!
  48. Penny postcard!
  49. Even if this is mass produced - it is fabulous! I'm joking - it can't be mass produced but it might not be as old as 1700's or 1800's.
  50. They are all one half of a sash or belt buckle set. Probably celluloid with metal - your Egyptian one has eyelets to sew onto the sash, all from the 1920's.
