  1. Could this be a repro?
  2. So beautiful Jenni! A wonderful Fall or Thanksgiving theme.
  3. That's a fossil! So interesting and great find. Sorry to hear Valentino is not in best of health :(
  4. Can you give me the make and model # of your scanner? I want to do some research on it since I feel like my scanner/printer wants to die soon. Thanks I see the book on etsy - good price too!
  5. Fort - was your dad like mine? We were excited to go with him to farm sales but he went off talking to the adults and us little guys were shivering and actually watching the auctioneer LOL. Not mad, i...
  6. Looks like art doesn't it?
  7. WOW - these images are from a scanner??? My scanner just laughs at me and only works sometimes. I would love to use a scanner to capture color and detail. I asked because I might have an unsigned broo...
  8. Sorry I missed this lovely bracelet, but now am enjoying the comments :-)
  9. This might be from Mexico or Central America. I have a similar gold charm with stone given to me from a friend who went there in the early 90's. I'll try to find it. Love mine and it isn't even as pre...
  10. Wow Eileen - what a great pairing!
  11. Amazing! The colors and styles are so beautiful. Was Sherman always signed on the back?
  12. The bluebird of Happiness! Very sweet :-)
  13. Wonderful jumping fishes! I have horse heads like this too.
  14. Thank you Elisabeth! I think you might have this same color. Very delicate which is why I added the painting :-) Thanks for loves Sean :-)
  15. All beautiful! What are the dimensions of the first 3 please?
  16. Sorry - I'm always afraid to comment on baskets - I'm always wrong. Love them though!
  17. I think it's from India. Are you sure these aren't glass beads?
  18. Love this too! I don't have one or the Vegas dice starburst clock either :-)
  19. Love the wampum! That's how this country was won :-)
  20. Thank you gargoyle - it is a spectacular wow fireplace isn't it?
  21. Okay, pictures can be deceiving :-)....well, a pretty good bakelite test is to look closely at the bead openings. They should be dusty, rough or a lighter color because the polisher could not get in t...
  22. Me too Eileen :-) If I had this set, I don't think I would need to buy another single piece of jewelry XOXO
  23. Thank you Phil - I really love the design :-) Thank you Jenni - I agree. Love the pattern :-) Thank you Karen for the birthday wishes :-) Thank you Sean for your beautiful remark :-) Thank you Eil...
  24. Thank you melaniej - and see the tiny Christmas tree lights inside? I think the andirons are reproductions - but a pretty good choice. Artfoot - I love that caltiles website! But, no luck :( Th...
  25. Thank you Caper - I wonder what the idea was? They are handpainted! Thanks Phil - it is a most beautiful 1922 lobby with coffered ceiling and tiny floor tiles. I'll take a picture of the floor late...
  26. I need to do some research. I believe they were made in Los Angeles, which would be reasonable and cheap for the time. Maybe Batchelder?
  27. Very nice my friend! For $1??? I've missed your posts. Hope you are well.
  28. Oh my the colors are so beautiful!
  29. Crochet-beaded bag, possibly German. I wish I knew more.
  30. Thank you for your research!
  31. Yes, they often have great graphics.
  32. Thank you Fort and Kevin for your fast loves :-)
  33. Thank you Kevin for your fast love :-)
  34. Nice pendant brooch from your Mom! Love the Lisner bracelet too.
  35. Beautiful and thank you for the research on this lovely set! Of all my treasures, I don't think I have a Sherman. (Sad face)
  36. And, I am so glad that you found everything to bring them back together again :-)
  37. Amazing! Gorgeous color and design Eileen!
  38. It could be that someone took the Sarah Coventry ear clips and upcycled - maybe in the 70's or 80's or...?. Why do I think so? Look at the bent wire between the shell and the ear clip - Sarah Coventry...
  39. Yes, gorgeous color and design. Beautiful!
  40. Beautiful, rich color.
  41. A very beautiful set! Wow and love them :-)
  42. Gorgeous set! I hope you wear it in best of health :-)
  43. Gorgeous Kyratization! So glad you saved it. Beautiful design :)
  44. I'm a Trifari fan too - agree with everyone - gorgeous!
  45. Is it tiny? Not seeing the dimensions. I love it!
  46. I love this large brooch too! So nice Ken :-)
  47. They look like glass to me. Pretty sure they aren't bakelite, but very pretty.
  48. Beautiful - great colors and style. You have so many beautiful rhinestone items. Thank you for sharing! I love these :-)
  49. Love these grey and clear and aurora beaurolis rhinestones :-)
  50. Share - you know I did not buy that painting! Too funny my friend. The earrings were a nice surprise and affordable :-) Thank you friends for the loves: Aura, Kevin, Mike, Kyra, Gargoyle, Manikin, ...
