I’ve uploaded a new profile picture of me among some favorite flowers along a path thru my flower garden...at least all that labor can have a reward! My original I’ve uploaded a new profile picture of me among some favorite flowers along a path thru my flower garden...at least all that labor can have a reward! My original profile picture is a long-lost object of my affection: a 14 karat gold Ladies’ Bulova wristwatch called Her Excellency, Model K, made in 1948. I made the picture of the watch on my dear mother’s wrist after I gave it to her in 2014. It had belonged to my aunt, then to me, then I gave it to my mother. I knew the watch would come back to me after my mom’s life was over, however, as it can happen with heirlooms, when the time came for me to reclaim the watch, it had vanished. I spent a year scouring web sites for a replacement, to no avail. The only information I have found is a print of a 1948 magazine ad for Bulova watches. The ad pictures the watch, identifies it by name and model letter, states: 21 jewels, yellow 14K gold but also available in white gold. Original price was $59.50. Research let me find out that Bulova made many variations to their watches and some variations were poorly documented or that information has been lost over the years. I actually grieved over the loss of the watch but researching it is what lead me to CW and gave me plenty of other items to think about! I recently retired after a long career as an RN. Now I stay busy with dollhouses and flowers, mainly. (Read more)

  1. The brown group looks like a box of expensive chocolates! Each group is beautiful!
  2. Insulator for an electric fence, maybe?
  3. What’s that in the background?
  4. Is this a real working lathe? Incredible toy!!
  5. I’ve neglected to thank a bunch of people for reading and loving my post, so let me make amends now: Valentino97, Keramikos, Collectables59, Roycroftbooksfromme1, MsCrystalShip, my thanks to you all!...
  6. Big, bold and beautiful!
  7. I just came across your very old post. I believe your first 2 pictures are showing a “ concretion”. In a concretion, the mineral content in the soil/sand hardens into a concrete like hard substanc...
  8. kwqd, I’ve come to understand that you really love beautiful glass so you wouldn’t have it in you to actually “kill” it!! I’m confident that you will make it fabulous again! Can’t wait to see the re...
  9. I thought of “The Sound if Music” with Julie Andrews singing on a hilltop.
  10. I thought the clock being attached to the bowl was peculiar until I saw the building with it’s clock...then it made sense. Lovely story of your travel experience at the store!!
  11. Since you got such a good price you could put that money you “saved” toward restoration. The beautiful glass deserves better! Doesn’t deserve the firing squad, certainly!
  12. Beautiful coin from India’s past!
  13. Your serial number 264220 gives you it’s exact date of manufacture if you read it backwards. So your table was made on 02-24-62. You can post 4 pictures so why don’t you post pictures of the table...
  14. Those chairs in the linked info are just beautiful! I love that “pony” hyde upholstery idea. The ones in this post just need some TLC and a professional reupholstering to look stunning.
  15. Thank you Mrstyndall for the love!
  16. Bobby, BB2, kwqd, Fortapache, Danny2feathers, Thank all of you for the loves! Danny, thanks for the comment. I wish I could go back and look in that same area for more of the game pieces but too ...
  17. Those beautiful eyes!! He looks as if he is about to speak/so alive looking. What a talented artist!
  18. Back in the mid/late 1950s, there was local promotion in our town for having a “professionally made” silhouette- for a fee, of course. I think there was a limited time for the service so I’m thinking...
  19. Try eBay for “tribal filigree link and connector” chain. This is similar to yours but the bead is a metal ball rather that a pearl type bead. It’s for sale by the foot. Maybe that name will give yo...
  20. I love them....Lucky you!!
  21. I also think it’s French...art market with Notre Dame’s windows and buttresses in the background.
  22. Love the post! And pic 3 !
  23. PhilDMorris, you would especially have enjoyed having this little stone when you were a child. I can’t wait to show my family what I discovered about it rolling in circles! Thanks for the comment an...
  24. If you will edit your post and put the picture of the cabinet as pic 1, I think it might attract more attention. Also, to make the pictures orient right side up, do this: “edit “ your picture in so...
  25. Lol, kwqd....I’m mailing you my glass now but I can tell you already, it’s not in your league. You will be highly disappointed!
  26. Picture 3 has a hypnotic effect! Just looking at it seems to draw one into the swirl.
  27. I think that’s the most beautiful cabinet I’ve ever seen on a sewing machine! It doesn’t show the usual wear patterns you see in heavily used machines. Maybe it was bought with high hopes of doing a...
  28. What part of the unit is picture 3 showing? It looks like an insulated bin with a drain at the bottom but can’t tell how it’s supposed to be oriented or where it’s located. Those cute little “wa...
  29. It’s beautiful as is! This is the way it was meant to look showing off the lovely wood. I totally agree with AnythingObscure: paint would absolutely ruin it’s look and it’s value! So please don’t ...
  30. All very interesting finds! It’s wonderful that you are finding these pieces from our past so they can tell our story.
  31. Have you ever visited the Weinman Mineral Museum, now part of the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville Georgia? It’s fascinating and educational if you are in that vicinity. It would be worth conta...
  32. I always loved big earrings! And blingy!
  33. Fascinating stone! And what a sweet rememberance of your friend.
  34. Thanks for the new pictures! I hope you find out more about it and update us here. I’m also thinking it’s prehistoric by the looks of the crystalline inside of the shell.
  35. That looks absolutely other-worldly!!
  36. What are the dimensions? You can add another picture- a side view would be nice. Is picture 3 the bottom of the shell? This is very interesting!
  37. I’m not sure if tabby was used along the west coast. It’s possible but I’m not aware of it. Maybe others will chime in with some answers for you.
  38. I’m wondering if this is a berry bowl. The design around the edge looks like blueberries. A berry bowl would need to be shallow (as this bowl is) so as not to bruise or crush the berries.
  39. Aside from the mystery of the signature, I’m just trying to figure out what is going on? Baffling....lol!
  40. Did you find it along the southern East coast of US (Florida, Ga, Carolinas)? It looks like “tabby” which was a common building material which incorporated shells and sand to make a concrete-like sub...
  41. Beautiful and the missing piece isn’t even very noticeable. That’s just the look I’m going for with flowers...but haven’t achieved yet!
  42. What a beautiful iridescent sky and mountains in the distance! Like daybreak in the high mountains.....
  43. That’s beautiful, whatever it was intended to be. Perhaps you could display it in front of a window to do justice to the roses and beautiful textured glass. I have stained glass panels in several of...
  44. I love that gasoline safety sign!
  45. What a handy-dandy tool. So useful back in the day when every still- useful part of something otherwise worn out was salvaged and reused. I love it!
  46. Congratulations on winning! The ribbon display is impressive! Your posts are always interesting and informative also.
  47. Tell us more about the cute turtle with baby turtle in it’s back. I also like the rabbit item and the lovely item with pale green handle (mirror?)...a nice haul!
  48. This box is just bursting with positive feelings and enthusiasm! I especially liked the bottom with “wong side up”. :^D
  49. When I googled “filigree link bar chain”, I found many examples similar to yours. Yours is very pretty with the beads between the bar links but I don’t know if the beads make it a different style. I...
  50. I found examples of “bar link” chain at Halsteadbead.com under “footage jewelry chain”. Also, Beadpark.com sells chain footage. Look under “bar link chain”. Neither have your specific bar but maybe...
