    Eh, what the heck, huh? Various and sundry doodads to distract people who have been cut off from their normal daily activities by the pandemic. I'm not in any mandatory lockdown myself. Yet.

    The first item is for valentino97. It's my piece of alleged fossilized ivory set in a ring, the head of which is about 1.125" long. I can fairly reliably date its acquisition to 1976 and the place as Alaska. However, in the process of shining it up, I noticed that there is not a makers or assay mark on it anywhere. Hmmm. If anybody thinks I'm gullible now, it probably isn't a patch on how gullible I was forty-odd years ago. };-)

    The second item is for billretirecoll (and anybody who ever loved the Renaissance Faire at the Black Point Forest). It's a souvenir pin, about .875" in diameter, and the inscription on it reads "BLACK POINT FOREST FAREWELL 1971 - 1994," commemorating what turned into a long goodbye to the Renaissance Faire at the Black Point Forest in Novato, California (they'd been threatened with eviction for years before it actually happened in 1998). It's a pin, and definitely made out of base metal, but I knew that when I bought it.

    The third item is for Steptoe1 and is a moss agate eye, about 1.75" in diameter. I knew that dang thing was somewhere, but couldn't seem to find it back when Steptoe1 posted a moss agate piece. :-)

      keramikos - Love your fossil ivory ring! Very pretty. The Ren Faire pin and the moss agate donut too. I am pretty isolated. No family here, boyfriend in Bali (go figure, will he be able to get back? LOL) Working from home this and next week. I'll be posting a lot of goodies! Stay safe - thanks for the link!

      valentino97, Thanks. :-)

      Boyfriend in Bali, huh? Well, there are probably worse places to be stranded.

      Yeah, I'm fairly isolated myself as a routine thing (introverted). I just have to up my game a bit.

      There's a comic going around that depicts a dog tell its human that it's for their own good -- and the human is wearing a cone (to prevent face touching). };-)

      We collect the little necklaces they give us every year at the Hogg Town medieval fair in Gainesville FL. They have a pendant on them too.
