My parents took me to farm sales so I remember some of the oldies that are now impossible to find. Have been collecting for 40 years and mostly enjoy jewelry, old plastics, Native American jewelry and vintage clothes and accessories. I look at this most recent picture of me and I see my Grandpa - oh boy. The M by the road? It's a pull out spot for narrow roads in Iceland. (Read more)

  1. I think it's 1940's-50's - still on the first half of the 20th century.....
  2. It does! The leaves are very candy-like. :-)
  3. Thanks Marta and Aura for fast loves. Thanks Karen - isn't this sweet? I love it too....not a cherry brooch, still looking for that :-)
  4. So beautiful!!
  5. Nice body armour!
  6. Love the big links!
  7. Yes, please take a few more pics.

  9. It is really pretty - maybe Afghan or Saudi?
  10. I remember this fabric!
  11. Wonderful! And now very collectible.
  12. I had these in long jean form, patched all around the butt....satin rose, green/white ecology symbol. The jeans were in my cedar chest back home and I think my little sisters wore them for Halloween L...
  13. Very groovy! Do you ever come across the green and white ecology patch or decals? Also, I have been trying to find the Thom McKann red/white/blue lace up leather shoes - no luck. I remember seeing th...
  14. Way to go Rose on your 1000th!!! Millenial! Beautiful pin. I love pink too.
  15. I love it! Nice find.
  16. So great! I love the Harley ends too!
  17. Sorry, I haven't seen these before. 3-1/8" is a pretty large opening.
  18. Very nice! And Myjewelryaddiction's link suggests the cameo is "ivory caseine".
  19. This might have been a homemade item. Love it!
  20. So wonderful!
  21. I wish....I could remember and walk you through it :-) But, I would wait until you get your manual. I remember these were not easy to use or make a nice buttonhole if the fabric was too thick or thin ...
  22. Thank you lentilka! I love green dice. Now I'm looking for a green prystal spacer. I upcycled the dice & bangle but I didn't wear it until I got the 2 little bodyguards. http://www.collectorsweekly.co...
  23. My favorite is the copper brooch, and I love the "miracle" brooch too! Recently saw a bangle like yours - but I can't find it again online. I think this is fairly new. It was made in homage to bake...
  24. Celiene - you are such a great researcher! Bob this is a very pretty ring!
  25. It attached to the machine. I wouldn't try it on just any sewing machine. (feed dogs up? zig-zag set to???) I'm sure there is a manual out there. I remember my Grandma having this.
  26. They look like 1950's-60's Lucite or thermoset plastic "gems". Fun!
  27. Very pretty, I love your pictures too! Maybe someone knows - was this for a few single long stem flowers? Or a single stem of many small blooms?
  28. This is so beautiful! Love it!
  29. I am not sure either. Pretty wonderful as is though - gorgeous color.
  30. Very cool! I haven't come across eggs before.
  31. Thank you Bonnie - I was so thrilled that the 2 brown matched my upcycle dice bracelet so perfectly. Now they are married :-) in a way that 3 can be a marriage.
  32. So graceful and lovely color!
  33. Quite a collection! Gorgeous my friend.
  34. So unusual! I love these beads - great color combination too!

  36. Thanks davy - and because they're light I can wear them all together and they don't make much racket. Thanks Karen for the love!
  37. Thank you Marta! I love them so much. Plan to hang the when I get the right frame. I have another tile of 2 flying geese that a tile expert said was worth some $$$. Wish I had kept the name of the onl...
  38. So sweet! I have a few wall pockets too of cute birds. Yours is very nice!
  39. Thanks for telling me. It's pretty neat to see a pair by the way!
  40. Thank you BB2 but I know you know..... Thanksgiving is a holiday all about eating. For many the tradition continues to the Macy's parade and football games. Others strap on guns for pheasant or deer ...
  41. Caper - I hope they got away and had a sea voyage! :) I love turkey and stuffing. I have my recipes out tonight for our meal tomorrow - thank you! Celiene - Yes - they are getting the heck away to...
  42. Agree Kyra - I love these turtle shell colors! Lots of good imitations shell, ivory - and also fur. Thanks friends for loves: Mike, Bonnie, Aura, Judy, Scott, Caper, Phil, Fort, Ivonne, Flea, Pebbl...
  43. Thanks friends for the loves!! Judy, Gudrun, Aura, Mike, Mike, Scott, Caper, Jlmam, Fort, Kyra, Ivonne!
  44. Thanks davy - no there is no mark anywhere. It's nice, and I think silver plate because it shines up nice. Definitely FAKE. Thanks kyra - yes, the link is easy to wear. I usually wear it with my r...
  45. Yes that is right and in fact I'm cooking dinner with my friend from Canada tomorrow!
  46. I love your collection and to see how you display it. Thanks so much for sharing!
  47. You made this? So cool!!!
  48. And I think the dress was designed by Orry-Kelly - so incredible!!! All the costumes in that movies are really wonderful.
  49. HippieArch - did you watch Vinyl on HBO? Someone on that show would have worn this FAB jacket!
