  1. Thanks nutsabotas6!
  2. Good to know,...Thanks scottvez!
  3. Thanks Caperkid!... :D
  4. Definitely Scottish. Irish dolls generally don't have kilts- it's not really considered national dress. Usually a shawl is, etc.
  5. It's interesting. Not sure what it's made from but if there's tiny little dots on the surface that usually means it's bone because bones have little tiny blood vessels in them.
  6. Thanks Gillian- there's no marks on the back. and as for the spider leg I think I still have it.
  7. Thanks Collectomaniac! 'The centre of the universe'??? XD
  8. Thanks kyratango- Happy 'Oiche Samhain' to you too!
  9. Thanks dotbronx, yeah, theres a yellow set out there somewhere too.
  10. Thanks Katherinescollections- I think he maybe resin?
  11. I'm no royals fan, but this is so sweet!
  12. LOL!!!- Perfect time of year for a skull to appear on your chair! XD
  13. This is fabulous- I worked in a bookshop last year and we were still using these!
  14. There so cool- Glad to know I'm not the only one that decorates with skulls all year round! XD
  15. Thanks a lot ThriftyGypsy! Your right about the boxes- you've opened my eyes to such beautiful items! :D
  16. I've got a crucifix made from wooden pegs- made it myself in school!
  17. Oh no way! Thats terrible Jancal20, why would anything like this happen?! Thanks so much for the support though all the same.
  18. I love them-these are fantastic!
  19. It reminds me a bit of one I have because of the floral design on it.
  20. Thanks Jancal20!
  21. Thanks lentilka11!
  22. Thanks Racer4four- had an idea it was Turkish alright!
  23. I think it maybe off a larger piece of wooden furniture- like a table or chair? And the little ball in its mouth is probably supposed to be the pearl of wisdom I'd imagine?
  24. Its so cool! It's like a little mini pirate chest!
  25. Thanks Ms.CrystalShip!
  26. Thanks Manikin!

  28. Thanks Elainep!
  29. Thanks Jancal20!
  30. efesgirl- one of the turquoise ones has l25? or I25 on it? the coral has g10g (I think?) on it. The small turquoise and the large turquoise have a g25 on them.
  31. Thanks Nutsabotas6! yeah the malachite's my fave too!
  32. Thanks rockbat! yeah I think I'll be looking out for more in the future!
  33. Thanks Quantumphysia! The sun and the ruby moon are my faves!
  34. Ya- definitely post the rest of the set here too- I love how in one there's a weird correlation between the devil and the joker which seems somewhat...fitting! I love packs of cards too, both playing ...
  35. I know- we've got a bigger one thats white and sits on our dresser and my mother has this black one but it's set in a key-ring!
  36. These are fabulous!
  37. Is that it? We always guessed it was a fruit bowl- the size is big! and the stamp though faded and is hard to make out in the photo seems to have a name beginning with a 'P'?
  38. yeah- no, I wouldn't want to know that! Some can be so accurate yet others are very... vague? Makes one wonder...
  39. Lol- I know! I think I wouldn't like to practice them either for that reason!
  40. Thanks Jancal20!
  41. Lol! I think the death card is nothing to fear at all- I think it means the death of an old phase of life or something like that? Sometimes the cards don't mean very literal things etc but stand for s...
  42. Didn't know that- just pity that it got broken :(
  43. Thanks lentilka11, that one's obsidian.
  44. Thanks racer4four- he's not the only elephant I have but he's definitely the biggest one! I just have a thing for elephants :D
  45. Thanks for that info Efesgirl. I wasn't aware that's what made costume jewellery costume jewellery, but every piece you see here is silver. In regards to the amber I was certain it was synthetic too b...

  47. No, haven't heard of them ever,....why?
  48. ok- that makes sense! thanks Blunderbuss2
  49. Aventurine maybe?
  50. Thanks for the info Efesgirl! I had an idea that it wasn't very valuable considering it had English written on the bottom and in the past few months I have found 5 of them all in local charity shops!
