      Where is Kyra? She would be loving these!
    2. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 5 years ago
      I am imagining these as trays and I am taking them all !
    3. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago are so right Celiene....She'll be along eventually I'm sure . :)
    4. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      I second that Phil :)... the plates in this book are so well photographed they look like you could just pick them right off the page. Although, the shiny finish makes it hard for me to get a picture without glare and white outs. There's so many more it's hard to choose which to share !

      Is there any aurora borealis brooches listed in this book ? I have a couple that I need identified. From time to time, I'll visit this post and you can give me the info I'm looking for...just kidding.
    6. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      If there is Ken. I'll post them for know I'd be glad to share any info. :)
    7. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago

      Ha, I thought of kyra too when I saw the thumbnail on the splash page! :)
    9. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      lol...just for you Kyra :) We all know you too well and how much you love little creepy crawlies. Thanks for the "love" as well Katherine . It's odd that the insects in this book are in the "animal " section. I'm no biologist but it doesn't seem
    10. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Well I guess they are "animals" according to Wikipedia. :)

      Insects (from Latin insectum, a calque of Greek [éntomon], "cut into sections") are a class of invertebrates within the arthropod phylum that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae. They are among the most diverse groups of "animals" on the planet, including more than a million described species and representing more than half of all known living organisms.[The number of extant species is estimated at between six and ten million and potentially represent over 90% of the differing animal life forms on Earth.

      Now I hate this because somewhere I am going to have to find the book. Just love these excerpts !
    12. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      lol...I know Amazon has them Phil in various conditions and I believe a few of the 1st editions as well.
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Wow - thanks Mike - Okay, I just bought it on
    14. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      You're welcome glad you got a copy before they sell out. I think they might have a run on them after my :)
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      You're right about that! Sometimes I wait to post treasures until after my online bidding is over.
