  1. Cedar box, very popular in 1970s. Not expensive when new.
  2. I think that style was referred to as "cannon ball" for obvious reasons. There were beds in that style also.
  3. Yes, the 1970s. My parents had a set with brown plaid cushions. There was a big Sears store in their town so that's probably where they got theirs that they used daily for 45 years! The foam rubb...
  4. Oh, horrors!! My first thought was of one of those beef-butchering charts showing the different cuts of meat.... But surely not! The Rubic's Dog is a more pleasant mental picture!
  5. did anyone ever put gloves in the glove compartment?
  6. Dollhouse supply stores on-line sell tiny items that are correct to the smallest detail! I've furnished several dollhouses which are not meant to be played with by children, but meant to be enjoyed b...
  7. I don't buy stuff to add to my car, but I would make an exception for this beautiful original car flower vase! I've been known to pick bouquets of flowers from my yard to take to friends and I'll hav...
  8. I love the "basket" with pink flowers! The pin has a closure I've never seen before. It's so odd the flowers are wax!
  9. I remember these being around town when I was a child. It was fun for us kids but we had to first talk our mother out of a nickle. She didn't hand them out willingly.
  10. I suggest you contact the Booth Western Art Museum, Cartersville Georgia. The may be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. Your plaster piece is beautiful. Maybe the pl...
  11. Wow! I thought it was a colorful painting! So clever the way you hung the fish over the picture as if it just jumped from that very lively scene. I love it.
  12. It's beautiful but also brings about even more sadness to the piece by the artist's signing, as if in the blood.
  13. I wish families were not so quick to discard items that were precious to the previous owners! You probably will never know who the artist was or who the intended heir was so it becomes your precious ...
  14. I understand. Thank you for clarifying. I thought it looks like a friendly bear or lion face which would make sense if it really is a child's rocker.
  15. #4 is my favorite with the lively colors! #3 is clever with the tv behind the tapestry and the pops of color with the orange cushions really compliments the paneling and tapestry.
  16. Fhrjr2, I don't quite get the meaning of your first sentence in comment #4.
  17. Oh dear, looks like the guy is about to dip his sponge-on-a-stick into the trough of water! Is there a "only one dip" rule?
  18. Is the album cover tooled leather? It is beautiful!
  19. Made of what material? How much candy will it hold? It's very interesting and certainly unique!
  20. Audie Annie King or Miss Cora Floyd? Which ever, she is beautiful and beautifully dressed. Nice watch on beaded necklace, also!
  21. The handles look riveted to the jug and are oddly placed right at the rim; they look like they would fall over in the way if water was poured. Have you tried it? How much water will it hold? I wond...
  22. I thought perhaps the water was gravity-fed to the fountain, but the terrain looks totally flat so that's out. It must have been quite extravagant to have the fountain and to have to hand pump the wa...
  23. That looks like an oar in his hands. Are u sure he is a soldier? Why would a soldier have a dog with him?
  24. Why not call Salvation Army--they pick up things like this and it could go to someone in need. And it would be better for the air quality! It looks like Mediterranean Style and in good condition.
  25. I've never seen a mica chimney! Thanks for posting/explaining!
  26. Definitely a jockey on this one--horses, horseshoe shaped frame....
  27. Beautiful old rocker--nice that it's getting some well deserved TLC!
  28. January's elephant looks none too happy--probably incensed by the head dress. But I personally love it! Plus love his groovy stripes!
  29. Thank you! Our household was 5 daughters, my mom and Dad. So, understand why I don't pay much attention to "boy" items :-) But you got my attention: something about "BAR" dragged a deep memory to ...
  30. I love the little detail forming a sort of handle for the bottom part: it's a tiny root sprouting from the acorn, securing it to the ground, tapping into the soil. The first sign of life for a mighty...
  31. If you have access to herb plants such as sage, lavender, lemon balm, basil, mint, try this to see if it would even work: Pick several stems of a fragrant herb so that you have about a cup full of le...
  32. I would LOVE to have that cute microbus!!! But it would give me a squeeze too!
  33. Maybe you could send pictures and all info you can to Tellus Museum, Cartersville, Georgia. The Weinman Mineral Museum section there may be able to help ID it. Try contacting them first to ask if th...
  34. Maybe an aroma diffuser?
  35. I was thinking of a rolled out and cut circle of dough like pie crust dough. Does the hinged part have any type clasp to keep it closed?
  36. Take a look at pizzel makers online - it may be an old one or something similar that you would heat then place a circle of dough in the device, then heat it until you have a thin, crisp cookie that ha...
  37. Lovely!
  38. Horrors!! I thought the same as you: an awful logo for a women's group. I thought of violence against women/head, arms missing, angel wings flying to Heaven!
  39. Thank you guys..... the post and funny line about Uncle Zellmo and Toyrebel's comments gave me a chuckle! Sherman spent a few days around Halloween in my community then burned it down as he left. Th...
  40. I love the ray's of light coming from the street lamp!!
  41. I've seen something similiar and I think it is pieces of colored glass sheets and colored glass nuggets that are melted onto the ceramic base item (plate). They are beautiful! Love the creativity!
  42. Are you showing just one "square" of the quilt or is that it? What are dimensions of the entire thing? It's easy to see whether it's machine made or hand stitched by gently spreading the seams and t...
  43. There are a few glass blowing studios in my area which offer classes to the public. Since this jar has such quirky qualities, maybe it was the product of a student who has only a few days of training...
  44. I've kept classical music albums from a college music appreciation class for 40 years but with nothing with which to play them......you have jogged my memory....I must remedy this! When I bring a rec...
  45. This is so tragic. Too sad to comprehend. Thank God you escaped with your life. Best wishes for your rebuilding.
  46. Yes, the 70s were special. Hooking rugs was a hobby that sprang up quickly, became very popular, then died out just as quickly. The framed hooked rug and it's subject matter, the peace sign, are def...
  47. Wonderful arrowhead collection and display! Tell us about the 2 wooden canoes in picture 3. Those must have a story also!
  48. I was just looking at older posts during a little bout of insomnia. I MAY be able to help. I think it's to twist 2 strands of yarn or cord together to make 1 stronger strand of yarn or cord. The U-...
  49. I initially thought of dollhouse miniatures. They can be wonderfully detailed. Good luck in your search for these adorable little bottles and their tiny box!
  50. Thanks for the back view....but it doesn't provide any fresh ideas as I had hoped. Is she made of fired pottery?
  51. See more
