      I adore it!...Like I said before I love all things marine and he's the sweetest happiest whale I've ever seen- the open smile and the spray of rhinestones are so sweet...he's certainly having a whale of a time :P

      Thanks Kevin for the super comment, yes this whale certainly has a huge happy smile, isn't it great when designers can give an animal personality - although with dolphins, now THEY actually seem to be smiling sometimes, even laughing

      Lauren I'm delighted that you really liked this whale, he is a charmer! The spout of rhinestones really sparkles, it doesn't show up in my pix but that is one reason this is such an attention getter. Thank you for the wonderful compliments my friend and I love marine life as well, can't visit places like Sea World at the moment so have to see these swimmers on TV for now

      Mani thank you for the lovely praise, and you are probably right that it's a she, with such a pretty feminine design! Glad you liked her

      Thanks six-0-one for the fab compliments, this was an absolutely great find 4 me - if you look online, this vintage KJL is going for a couple bills, but I got it awhile ago very reasonably and I cherish it as part of my KJL collection, he did such creative figurals

      Thank you foseatme! I truly appreciate your sweet compliment & the love, this whale is quite the cutie :)

      Now that brooch is what I call a whale of a good time! ;)
    7. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Really appreciate the fun comment Leah, thank you for giving me a smile today! Perhaps that whale's smile is catching, he certainly does appear happy :)
    8. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Many thanks dlpetersen for the thoughtful love and support I really appreciate it & am glad you liked this KJL whale

      It's FABULOUS!!!

      Now I have finished shouting I will say Jenni that the fun and style of this brooch really appeals to me. Yes, I am a tad childish :)
    10. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      I think this whale's goofy grin brings out the child in all of us Karen, thank you so much for the fantastic compliments & love, you are spot on about this piece which is fun across generations - many times kids point to it when I wear it. Better a smile than a frown anytime, although with masks on all you can see are eye crinkles but that's still OK :)

      Great close-up photo of a fantastic brooch. I'd wear this to a New Years Party or 4th of July Party at the Beach & have a Whale of a Good Time!
    12. Newfld Newfld, 2 months ago
      Thanks Alfie for your super comment and great suggestions on wearing this whale, hoping for a beach party soon, think we all definitely need a whale of a good time after this long year of restrictions! Appreciate the love & comps on my pix too, I try to get in close & show every angle, even if an older piece has flaws it's like allowing folks to do their own inspection :)

      Thank you MarmorealMaiden for the love, it's so nice of you & I'm very glad you liked this KJL whale

      Sorry I missed this - I was in Hosp at the time. A very happy piece !~
    14. Bruce99 Bruce99, 2 months ago
      Another fabulous, unique piece. Make me want to smile. Thanks for sharing Newfld.

      Thanks Phil & Bruce for the wonderful comments & love, you guys are great!!

      Phil it was a worrisome time when you weren't feeling well, I'm so glad you are back & sharing your fantastic posts with us. Yes isn't this fellow a happy guy, he puts us all in a very upbeat mood. Thanks for your super kind words

      Bruce thank you for the lovely praise, I am delighted that this whale brings a smile, it seems rather infectious & was one of KJL's early winners, his pieces were really fab in the beginning. You have the most marvelous eclectic clock collection, I always look forward to your posts as well - sharing here with others is a great thing :)
