  6. Log dancing on the river, cool! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upsZZ2s3xv8
  7. You're welcome! Perhaps just the part with the train.
  8. Their standard blade won't fit?
  9. A 1941 Section of Fine Arts-funded tempera painting titled “Anthracite Coal” was painted by George Harding and hangs in the post office lobby. http://livingnewdeal.org/projects/post-office-mural-ki...
  10. I think that you should get Sean to lend you some nice MCM pieces to display on there, I think he might have a few. :)
  11. Nice table Sis!
  12. Tung oil, lacquer & varnish are all different finishes.
  13. Cool... never seen a calendar with a transparent overlay!

  22. To me it looks like the copper finish has come off of the one stem showing the yellow brass base metal.
  23. I wonder if the whole piece is brass with a copper finish?
  24. Love the design of this one!
  25. Here is a link to the patent image https://www.google.ca/patents/US314723?dq=e+rogers&hl=en&sa=X&ei=cp6BVbroLraIsQSW-6-ABw&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAA

  38. I agree, great artwork, love it!
  39. I think they should have used Mr Gray's name!
  40. Waldsassen used that mark from 1970-1993. http://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/germany/bavaria/waldsassen-01/index.php
  41. I haven't played with a yo-yo in years, lot's of fun!
