  1. This is amazing, as I love the subject! I've spent my life on or near water. And where you call it a prawn, I call it a shrimp. Nice find!

  3. Groovy find! Are you in Texas helping? Either way, stay safe.
  4. I agree with all above comments! I assume you realize this but just in case....the 24k clasp will eventually give out and break after enough opening and closings. I've had to replace all of mine, and...

  12. This is a cool post! I love the gentle thought put into the arrangement of these items, and I have seen many of these buckles over the years and never thought much of them. But now I bet I never see ...
  13. Sure does look like at least 18k gold, I can't imagine it's higher than that because it gets too soft to hold the stone securely. But it looks higher to me, and the stone is really a beautiful match t...
  14. I can't help but think what it took to get this bell on the slab it sits on. A major endeavor for sure. I was also wondering if you went in the church? I like to nosy around inside and out of old chu...
  15. Such a cool item, I love it!

  17. Nope, I've tried three lamps of various ages. Any other ideas?
  18. I thought they were mostly universal in size. So my mom tried it on a lamp and it didn't fit, think I'll check behind her. I'll let you know. Thanks Slackjack and Fhrjr2!
  19. 3" long.....I made a booboo.
  20. Too funny to be so true ^^^^^^

  22. You'll have a much better shot of someone helping if you add photos of the back and marks. It's amazing!
  23. That's what I think Phil. But I was really hoping someone knew something about them. Did you notice the name on them? I've tried to find anything about him doing this kind of stuff but come up empty...
  24. I complain way to often about thrift store price sticker placement. But I've been very lucky with Goof Off only removing sticker residue and nothing more. Nice find!
  25. A truly wonderful piece to have. I took a few minutes and was able to read most of it. But you are right, takes a bit to get used to her writing. Really nice unique piece!

  31. And I agree to them facts being amazing Phil, I've tried to tinker with pics before and well....let's just say it wasn't a good outcome. But check out my next post, I think these may be a bit special.
  32. I really love how it's all cluttered, so the longer you look the more you see. Nice!
  33. Oh the one I found isn't nearly this nice....or old.
  34. I have a very similar mirror I bought from the thrift store. I'll see if the granddaughter will dig it out so I can post it one day soon. I love this of course!
  35. Thanks! I'm rather fascinated by the blue eyes I've never had, but don't tell Phil.....lol I think I look good with blue eyes. I have mixed color eyes most days, one brown and one green. But on good...

  37. Cool stuff with a cool history! I bet it was exciting and hard to leave at the end of a day?
  38. I think it was made by Quoizel, who contracted a Ms. Adams to hand paint these. I just can't remember Adams first name. But if you look up hurricane lamps on eBay I'm sure you will learn the maker an...
