    Three found at the Flea Market, and Three found in Sunnyvale, Calif.! I found the Jewelry at the Flea Market on Sunday 04/14/19, and these Three Mexican Thick Billed Parrots(I think they are), were at my Son's apartment in Sunnyvale.
    The Micro Mosaic Ring, I think is Brass, marked on the back Made In Italy, it's 5/8"wide and 7/8"long. The Marcasite covered Petals and 9 Garnet Stamen Flower shaped Spray Brooch is marked 925 on the back, and is 2"long x 1 1/2"wide. The Three Mast Spanish Gallian Mesh Brooch, is named ACORES, it has 3 Sails, and 3 Flags and a Maltese Cross on 2 of the Sails, the Brooch 2" x 2".
    We heard screeching sounds of Birds, as we were coming back to my Son's Apartment after a walk, and asked our Son what was making the sound, and He said that it's from a bunch of Parrots that fly around the neighborhood, and just then they landed in the Tree by His front door, where I was able to take the photograph! :^D

    Thank you for looking, any comments are welcome, and questions I will try to answer! :^)

      I love the 3 screechers best! You got a great picture Bill! They are so beautiful. We have plain green or yellow wild parrots here in Long Beach - loud and proud! Love the ship brooch mucho bueno. And, the ring and marcasite brooch. Great finds in Sunnyvale - all very cool. Happy Easter, your favorite Mary

      Woah, LOVE the Ruby & Ice brooch!
      In fact ,all three are wonderful finds, but I'm partial
      to Red & Crystal pieces!

      Nice finds and cool birds :)

      Fantastic post Bill, I'm like Mary in love with those gorgeous parrots, you are so lucky to live in a temperate climate where wild birds can live happily (birds try to survive the NY winters, but many's the time I've found little feeder birds frozen solid on a below-freezing early Feb morn, heartbreaking:( I also really love your pretty jewelry esp that fancy beautiful red & white sterling brooch, nice f. market finds

      Thanks Eileen! The three of these were separate buys, and paid up a little for the Sterling and Garnet Brooch, but the Ring was out of a bottom of box dig, and got it for almost a smile! :^D

      Ty ty Mrstyndall! It was a Fun day at the Flea, and just Lucky to see the Parrots, a minute + or - and we wouldn't have seen them! :^D

      Hey Jenni, if those Parrots are Mexican Thick Billed(they look young to me), they are nearly extinct in Mexico, and were probably smuggled, then released, or escaped, and don't live this far north normally, but I know that in San Francisco, there's a large flock, of some kind of Green Parrots, that has been there for years, so they can survive here! Thanks, I have been finding some nice jewelry lately, but I think it's because I get to the Flea Market when it opens, around 6am, and have first pick! :^D

      Thanks to everyone, for taking a look, and giving some love,
      Pascale

      and Jenni, its much appreciated! :^)

      I wish I could get up and out by 6 am. :-)
    11. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 1 year ago
      Well my #1 Mary, I don't know what I could do about that, but our Cat Peaches, is up most mornings at 4:45 with a mew mew meow, and a tug on my blankets, that gets me up! {:^}

      aura always nice with the loves! Thanks so much! :^)

      Wow, I've been in Central Cali all my life and never, I mean never , have I seen a wild parrot!
      So they're in Northern & Southern California? Wish some would flock here!
      Then again I lived in the Country most of my life and seen all kinds of wildlife. One week before I sold the ranch I seen a bear. One bear in decades...

      Thanks for the comment Eileen, I don't know, they make an awful amount of noise, I guess beauty has it's price! :^D I think there was a flock of some type of Parrot in Berkeley too, by the Rad-Lab, or on Campus somewhere, they're smuggled in, and released if found out, and as long as it's temperate, they survive! :^)
