  1. The cherubs are holding tiny diamonds that are almost buried by the gold they are set in.
  2. Oh - it says copyright 1999. Cool!
  3. Hmm - it was ONLY for the greater Toronto area - anyone in the 416 area code.
  4. LIPTON TEA!! So that was from 98, at least. OMG - "Never pay for internet access again!". Riiiight! I wonder if you can sue now for false advertising??
  5. I have a round one with shells in it in my bathroom, no lid (Just like I got it for free it at the estate sale liquidation I got it at)! Now I know what pattern & maker it is!
  6. Thank you! Maybe we should revive it, and wake up all us old (young) hippies! I don't think anyone our age doesn't recognize this!
  7. So I get your color choices!
  8. LOL - my kitchen is lavender & butter yellow with sea foam green glass washed ceramic tile accents!!
  9. fhrjr2 - I think you are totally right. I thought of my grandmother's attic as soon as I saw it. And her exposed knob & tube wiring.
  10. Totally early 1960s.
  11. Definitely Rose Quartz cabochons. Nice find!
  12. Bex didn't do figurals. (That I know of) It's lovely. Are you SURE it's not silver?
  13. I don't think it's a kit - I'll post a pic of the back - it's totally homemade (Handmade?). I just have never seen tiles like that. And I can't think of what they were originally intended for?
  14. Hi! Anyone remember what this is called? Thanks! I've been away.
  15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_Intelligence_Division_(United_States)

  19. Here's more: https://community.ebay.com/t5/Archive-Fine-Jewelry-Gems/Anyone-know-about-vintage-manufacturer-Kimberly/td-p/2693979
  20. HUSBANDS! Argh!
  21. Dev Oak. Could that be Devonshire Oak or Devon Oak?
  22. And it was totally ignored in the news cycle because of his crazy.

  24. Cameos always amaze me.
  25. They had some similar on British Antiques Roadshow. Any marks? Are they just decorative?
  26. Whimsical!
  27. I think that is a Stag beetle! How has that survived all these years?? I'm amazed the lizards are in one piece. Do you have any idea what year it is from?
  28. BAZINGA! Superb!
  29. At Loved To Death in San Francisco, you used to be able to get human glass eye jewelry. Now it looks like thy just have taxidermy animal eyes. But you can still get human teeth jewelry! I LOVE this...
  30. Any ideas anyone?
  31. LOL - that's usually how it works!
  32. I should say - take another picture SHOWING the marks! She needs to see the marks so she maybe able to tell you who made it.
  33. Take another picture of the marks. You can put 4 pictures here. Make sure you save them in the correct orientation.

  36. Or did they issue them long before then?
  37. Thanks! I never miss the show - simply the best thing on TV! We get it later than you do here in the USA. If the belts were only added to the Uniforms in the 1960's, it can't be from 1917.
