  1. Wow! so cool!!
  2. yes! more fun is had when you don't kill each other.
  3. wonderful!!
  4. yes, it's pervasive, and mostly recreational now. it doesn't hurt anyone and makes for a somewhat peaceful and creative society. actually, i do believe it does harm some people, but only a small num...
  5. it feels really nice in my hands.
  6. i think this might be an older piece - 1940s-60s. what do you think?
  7. thank you Keramikos! you are exactly on it, as usual! 1950s is what i expected too.
  8. i just found him! he's a salt cellar, of course! https://www.ebay.com/itm/224314688925?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D233120%26meid%3D262232cf3b454401b719004878f9bc...
  9. thank you mp.kunst!! great info and perfect sense - for teabags.
  10. thank you Congcu! i haven't taken the time to look it up lately, but that sounds completely plausible.
  11. thanks Newfld!
  12. that's a wonderful way to show your trust to people! thanks for sharing that.
  13. i haven't sold it. i like to study them and just spend time w/ the pre-colombian things i find. so many mysteries!
  14. I love it! looks as full of treasures as my place is!
  15. this one does make me jelly! joplin, crumb, big brother! ugh! it hurts!
  16. Thanks Vynil. i still haven't found any info on this particular event - like when it was.
  17. i met Divine in Indianapolis in 1983 or 84. Deborah Harry was at the same party, but Divine was the center of attention that evening!
  18. thank you TallCakes!!
  19. too small for any of these, i think. the opening is only about .75 inches.
  20. thanks Vynil, Alfie and vintagelamp!
  21. You may be right Stillwater. I don't think that anyone is saying that it belonged to Fritz Todt, but it was a medal awarded in his name by the Nazi gov't.
  22. I use one of these as the base for my 'East Bay Wilds' nursery sign - all rustic.
  23. you can get that same sensation in very old peat bogs - like a really soft bouncey house!
  24. thank you Alfie!
  25. Yes Lauren, i have no idea who that is or anything about him, but it matches the photos linked to above.
  26. Wow! that is cucumber cool!
  27. beautiful one!
  28. thank you so much kwqd! I knew you'd be able to answer this accurately. the inside is a little rusty, but not terrible. i'm sure it will clean up - just waiting till i have a little time...
  29. Big Hero 6!! Thank you dav2no1 and Manikin! I still have no idea. i'll have to look that one up now.
  30. Thanks jscotto and for reminiscing Phil! I was only 8 months old which makes you 10 months older than me jscotto!
  31. i recognized it as a Banksia seedcone right away! cool!
  32. i like the short / squat shape!
  33. Thanks Vynil and Watch! i think that is what it is!
  34. yes he does remind me of Ned Kelly too!
  35. Thank you Ivan. i thought they were, but some folks insist they are Japanese circa 1900, which makes no sense to me.
  36. this is one of my favorite records from when i was around 10!
  37. wow! love this!
  38. I recognize that face too - from something Japanese. it's great!
  39. that makes sense. so scraper/knife? i still wonder what it's for in particular.
  40. 18th c? Early 19th? French?
