  2. What a grand old chair...looks comfy!
  3. Look at all the beautiful cobalt! The rolling pin is my favorite, I also have a glass one, not nearly as pretty. It has a faint purple look to it as my Mother put it, ( and several other bottles) o...

  11. The pose this one has is funny. He is actually sitting on his bottom as one leg shows! He has a beautiful brindle “coat” and yes, he seems to be smiling with the showing of his teeth. I always zoom i...
  12. Apologies! I was looking at Scott’s ( jscott0363) posts and your profile clicked a memory. I will indeed post the crock!
  13. First thing that came to mind upon seeing this Boston was...AWE! Great thinking not to disturb a most amazing toy. Wonder who owned him, wonder what the child called him? Did he have a real one, or d...
  14. Once again, a remarkable statue. Look at those hind legs! I love his” messy looking paint job”, gives him character, as does his adorable puppy face!
  15. Your animal posts are so “entertaining”. On Friday mornings, I so look forward to see what Scott has posted this week! Did I ever say how much you were missed and so glad to have you back? This wonde...
  16. Thanks Phil, I just haven’t been in the buying mood lately. I do appreciate you thinking of me, and yes! I love the gorgeous blue slim navettes on this beautiful set! I am going post something I have ...
  17. Another beautiful GENUINE Weiss! At first,I thought it was D & E, as I have a large cobalt crystal brooch over two inches! Phil is right, ( as always), this is a quality piece! No glue, but multi pron...
  18. Nice classic set. Great info too!
  19. My parents listened to him, “Big Bad John”, and other story telling songs...
  20. Wow, it’s huge! For a coat only, in the springtime! Maybe Maureen can help with the maker, she’s a jewelry genius....
  21. The white one is very well made. Very lovely indeed! The white one with the wonderful topaz center gets my vote!
  22. Wow, that 71 year old brooch is beautiful shape! The cobalt color, the fan design is wonderful. Hollycraft is becoming quite collectible as I have watched prices rise in years! I had a bunch years ag...
  23. Patricia, just caught your comment...Ha! Made me laugh!
  24. Wow! MEMORIES! Went to the theatre to see this concert, only way possible at the time! Love this picture of Clapton! Harrison did good on this concert, more should of been done by others!
  25. Very unique awesome piece! Wow, 105 years old!
  26. Is the figure hiding or trying to stay safe during an earthquake? First idea that came to me! I live in California, Ha! Other than that, I don’t find it so creepy, more interesting to wonder what he ...
  27. Mary, I believe the parties where during our Mother’s!
  28. So Judy Lee was sold like Sarah Coventry. At home parties, with a “hostess”. Very cool to know! Thanks Lori for all your hard work researching Judy Lee. I have a whole new respect for the Company as i...
  29. He’s still around... In video games!
  30. Someone likes “The Thing” LOL! Thanks for sharing!

  36. “Love The One You’re With”.....Sounds like the song by the great Stephen Stills!
  37. For some reason these are not showing up in the costume jewelry section, along with your other wonderful post. The one with all the clear stones are there, why not these? What am I missing here, I had...
  38. This is something new! I have never seen a stone caged in a gold “ball” before! That has to be a clue to the maker. They used a wonderful array of colors and stone types to make this piece very speci...
  39. Thanks Lori, yes, those are the times I miss the most. The little shetland I mentioned was penned in with a bunch of goats. ( it was a huge pen) The owner used to take him to children’s birthday par...
  40. I believe they are called “scatter pins”. They are what caught my eye right away. They look vintage, very pretty and feminine!
  41. Wow, you have a pair for every day of the week...make that month! The navy blue scallops on the white card must be brand new! (New, old stock) Lots of lovelies here, but I don’t care for abalone jewel...
  42. I believe we have discovered a new maker! “PEARLCRAFT”! The pink crystal (?) earrings are very pretty! I am pretty sure screw- backs came before clip-on’s, so those are a tad older. Yes, the prett...
  43. No comment was needed dear, just wanted to tell you about Willy. I should of put the story in the post, but as always , in too big a hurry. “The Ranch” was 4.2 miles into the Canyon, 45 acres, with 14...
  44. Interesting Thomas.... In John Wick, the hotel all the assassins take refuge in, where no “ business” can be done when staying there is called “The Continental”. Wonder if they took the name from the...
  45. Oh, and no need to comment again, Just thought you might like to read.....
  46. Maureen, I was in such a hurry posting my mule, I forgot to add the reason behind it. If you have the time, go to the bottom of the comments for “a little story” but only if you have the time dear :)
