  1. Excellent! I am so glad to learn about this wonderful lamp!
  2. Thank you dlpetersen, I agree!
  3. Nice! And the popular color of the 70's, avocado green!
  4. I love the shaker style and lines as well. I don't know about your piece but my first thought was maple sap/syrup.
  5. I have one in my kitchen too. I remember having the job of chopping the nuts and I still use it, it works great!
  6. Ouch is right! We would make our own out of chestnuts!
  7. Love them! I had a set of 6 back in the late 70's I think with a butcher block table. They left me several moves ago but I always loved them. Great find!
  8. Thanks Uncle Ron, now I know what a binnacle is! I would love to have seen the model this was on, must have been something else!
  9. Whatever it is, I love it! And I can't wait for my grandson to see it!
  10. The more I read the more I see the tern "sail away" as quite generic for going on a cruise or the tall ships coming in. Perhaps my item is a souvenir.
  11. I am loving everything that you post HippieArch! Your items are awesome, remind me of days gone by.
  12. Love the name of that boat, Pier Pressure!
  13. Thanks MacDadd, I didn't think of it like that!
  14. Very cool!
  15. Very beautiful!
  16. Wow, they are awesome! Where do you find all these groovy items! I am a bit jealous!
  17. I remember the sound of the whirring blades cutting grass from my childhood. A very pleasant sound, much unlike the roaring lawn mowers of today. I guess we all wish for some memory of the past!
  18. Amazing lamp!
  19. On the pic of the mark to the bottom left, do I see some letters?
  20. Very beautiful and original!
  21. So different! I love lamps of all styles and this one is awesome!
  22. wow! Gorgeous!
  23. Yes MacDaddy he does. And the part down the middle of his head is reminiscent of Jackie Gleason. I just know I have seen that face somewhere!
  24. Makes me think of Krushchev waving and pounding his shoe on the table. Now that's the way to get the point across!
  25. The large collar brought back so many memories! We wore these clothes all the time and my girlfriends and I sewed a lot of our own clothes from these wonderful, blinding fabrics! Thanks so much for ...
  26. He Herbgrower! If you Google "cut to clear tumblers", oh my, what a selection! Give it a try!
  27. Bwahaha! Good one! I just don't know why that guy looks so familiar!

  29. Those are really stunning!

  35. So beautiful!
  36. That is interesting PoliticalPinbacks. It sounds tiring to hand stamp and keep everything even but I now see that is how it got done before the CNC. I appreciate your comment and education on the su...

  43. Lovely and look at all the colors in that stone!
  44. Thanks PostCard It's a lovely chair, love the stencil. My grandfather caned chairs so maybe he replaced the seat. Maybe you should put yours back together?
