    This 1 3-4" paddleboat brooch has a graphic design with clear, red & black rhinestones on goldtone. By Dorothy Bauer (founded 1981) ca 1980s. I have always wanted to take a trip on one of these former "showboats" down the Mississippi River.
    Hope you enjoy my Labor Day posts, featuring two hardworking animals and a traveling riverboat, & hope you have a great holiday weekend & safe travels luv J

      Everyone has had a dream or two about some Tom Sawyer adventure. Great looking brooch.

      Seems like it would have been a very elegant way to travel Jenni! Lovely brooch too :)

      Very nice brooch! I live within walking distance of the Mississippi river in an area where the big paddleboats stop by. They haul tourists from New Orleans to the Twin Cities in MN. Those paddleboats are huge! Cool to see.
      You have a great and safe holiday weekend as well :)

      Beautiful brooch, reminds me of the movie with donna douglas and elvis on the riverboat as a gambler !~

      Very cool boat!
    6. LaurenRedmond LaurenRedmond, 3 years ago
      Very cool looking- at first glance I thought this was a train! It's very Tom Sawyer and 'Old Man River'!!!

      Yes Roy the Mark Twain stories really fired the imagination, thanks so much for reminding me & lovely comment

      Judy it would have been a wonderful way to travel, I can still picture Scarlett & Rhett on their New Orleans riverboat honeymoon, it looked so luxurious

      That bell must have been great Eileen, like the one the captain rang in Show Boat! I used to love how Kathryn Grayson sang in that movie, if only I had her fabulous voice

      Thanks so much MyCountry for your kind compliments, I am so happy you liked my posts I look forward to holidays to be a little more creative

      Wow buckethead how cool that you love near the Mississippi and can see the tour paddleboats, my hubby and I sent away for info about taking one of those tours leaving from New Orleans (we live in the East Coast, would have to fly into NoLa to pick up the boat), they have shorter trips but the full river ride is rather costly, we may do the five day one in future tho it looks lovely. Enjoy your weekend as well, thank you!

      Right Phil, I loved all of Elvis Presley s movies he traveled all over, always great scenery plus you got to hear his fabulous voice!

      Thank you MrsT for the nice compliment I thought it was pretty cool too and unusual

      Lauren you must be psychic I almost posted a train brooch I have, but figured the paddleboat is less ordinary and yes, reminds me of Old Man River & the movie Show Boat, one of my faves

      Thanks all for the love & comments have a wonderful holiday weekend

      Oh wow, IS this ever UNIQUE !! Have never seen anything like that before !!
    10. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Right Ken, Bauer had a great variety in her figural brooches & rarely imitated by others, so I'm with you I liked this one for its unique quality. Great comment my friend, I thank you

      Ditto Rose, this boat is really different, the paddlewheel in front is raised so in person it has a 3D quality which is pretty unusual in costume pieces. Thank you for the kind comment

      Many thanks for the love everyone

      How do you own so much fab stuff Jenni!
      I would love to sit on your lounge room floor and look at it all.

      Ozark season 2 is all about River boat gambling!! ha ha ha but no one wears jewelry on that show - sad face.

      This is very sweet!
    14. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Karen, it would be great to go over my jewelry with you, maybe you can help me better organize it! I do spread pieces out to choose what to wear or post, but mostly I try to keep them sort of filed according to maker in their little jewel boxes (I always take that icky cotton out that puts fuzz on the jewelry, and wrap the pieces in tissue or bubble wrap), kept safe in clear small bags inside storage bins. This works for the famous makers, I just have trouble with the one offs, can never find 'em lol! Love your kind compliments, thanks so much

      Mary now I am going to have to look for the Ozark season two show, maybe they will have it on my "on demand" cable channel - I love stuff about riverboats! Natch I would doubt the gamblers there like jewelry. My image of a riverboat gambler is Howard Keel in Show Boat, do any of the guys look like him lol. Appreciate your great comments

      Many thanx for the luv all
