Comments

  1. Sorry Jean, I was in a bad mood so thought it better to take off my comments and stick to THE item, as I should. Eileen - thank you, yes aren't they simple and elegant. I like the cloudy agate mix....
  2. Thanks for sharing all your great items! I love these too. What are the dimensions?
  3. Some type of composite, some CW expert will know. Very nice!
  4. Beautiful glass beads?! If the clasp bead is plastic I would guess Lucite and this is from the 50's. No marks at all?
  5. It's possible that this was a belt buckle - maybe half of one or shoe clip?
  6. Agree! SO LOVELY!
  7. I love the peacock too along with our friends! Eileen and Jenni give good advice - lots of great research books available. I like checking out books from the library, then I decide if I want to purcha...
  8. carmeniscat - thanks, I know Taxco de Alarcon is a town, but also stamped as a general term for silver made in the state of Guerrero. I agree that it's probable that the mark is used by other siversm...
  9. All for you my friend!! It's definitely a treasure. And still fits me despite rayon shrinking and me getting fatter. LOL. A relative sent me $ to make her some face masks. I've only worn the white pel...
  10. Wonderful post! I love pencils too. LOVE your style and artwork. Blue rinse! Congratulations on your current exhibit! Very inspirational - and yes, love your furniture and a peak into your home. Tha...
  11. SO beautiful and wonderful photos.
  12. But, I know nothing about Boy Scouts or action figures!
  13. LOVING all the posts from CW friends to you!! I love your bowler look, sorry for the delay with my Dad's shirt. I contacted his company but there weren't any bowling pictures from the late 50's-60's....
  14. Most desirable puka necklaces are the smooth round graduated heishe shells from the 60's-70's. The shells had a nice shiny lustre, I know because I had them back then and sadly lost over the years! A...
  15. Wonder what the original lamp shade looked like?
  16. The movie last year was just okay, because there was a lot of real documentary footage and concerts that a movie really didn't need to be made...just my opinion, I love Queen music, and always loved ...
  17. So nice! Great when you can find a bracelet to match. I love the brown items, and the red, gold, blue.....all great.
  18. All so nice - I really love the jewelry box (casket) and the butterflies! Best wishes to you and yours....I have to post that bowling shirt for you.....
  19. Watchsearcher - there's so much drama on CW right now that I'm afraid to share in case I'll offend. But, I want to share what I know about!! - isn't that what CW is for? So, thanks for understanding a...
  20. Sorry, this is mesh, not tiny beads and it's fairly new based on picture #3 lobster clasp.Is it plastic or metal mesh? It looks great but - don't slam me for knowing - it is not even vintage.
  21. Sorry, I've been looking in my books and online but can't find exact style. I actually have a necklace similar with garnets. India or Thailand.
  22. Gudrun, send this to me and I'll restring it for you after wearing it a few times! So nice. How long? Maybe it was meant to be doubled, so why would a closure be needed? I don't see fishing line from...
  23. So refreshing as....should we call it Spring Shoots? Green Apple? LOL, Sorry, I don't know. But it has a swirly yellow color too. Hard to tell from you picture - is the inside exactly same color as ...
  24. https://www.etsy.com/listing/638991001/creamy-freshwater-potato-pearls-ribbed? Here's an example that is on etsy right now. Potato pearls are mostly from China and Japan pearl farms. Respectfully t...
  25. Yes, very pretty and thanks for the research!
  26. Yes, would be good to know! Good bye.
  27. I am so bummed out that I don't know more about this lovely old ring!
  28. Help? unsolved mystery. Where are these experts?
  29. Don't be mad - please post everything you know in your first post. You will get a lot more responses with exact info. For me loving bakelite, this was ???
  30. Thanks Jean - it didn't look original to 20s-30's rings, but makes sense of a marriage of pin. I have been researching for 40 years and this didn't feel right.
  31. I had this Ken doll too.
  32. At first I thought this was a rosary crucifix, and I passed it over because none were made in catalin. NOW, I see it's larger, what size?
  33. How old do you think this is? Arts and Crafts style, but not actually from 1910-20s? Love the opals, can't see the chips. So nice.
  34. I was respectful and offered research about variscite, which this is not.
  35. Wow, my comment was taken off for some reason. Maybe because I know what this is or isn't?
  36. Glad your BnB is open! I love your collection of watch fobs.
  37. Love it! WAs this from the Ohio lot?
  38. What a nice find!
  39. Yes it is, agree w/above comments. These were sold through the mail for reasonable prices if you couldn't make it to Italy. Not exactly sure of the time frame though.
  40. Thanks for the love Maureen!
  41. Bill - I will post that shirt today after it's dry LOL. Yes, I've seen bowling balls used as garden art! And in the old days finding a cool old bag with ball and shoes inside was CHEAP. I had red, whi...
  42. Bill - my furlough might be extended thru Sept. I'm waiting for the call before Aug 1 deadline. I might be making a road trip in August - safely masked with social D - I just have to get out of Dodge!...
  43. Eileen - thanks! My favorite is Native American too, sadly often too pricey for me. This was a very nice present. Who am I kidding? I love silver from all over the world, so many great designs. Tha...
  44. Also a few other bowling memories: I won my high school bowling tournament as a Sophomore. Probably because no one cared or had my bitchin old bowling shirt. Will post it after I wash it - sadly a lit...
  45. Love how you met your wife! I have my dad's shirt from Johnson Pump (what a name) circa....1960, black rayon, cream embroidery including "Bud" over the pocket, cream bowling pin buttons....I wore it t...
  46. Nice purchases - I love the shoe penknife! Also the amber bracelet is pretty great. LOVE the car and the plane pendant/charms. Great pix as always, interesting W&D mesh bag and the little silver cup. ...
  47. Okay - things have been weird on CW lately. Some long time friends are gone, why? Also, I'm tired of the ? friends who won't post history details. I think CW should ban and delete them. During this ho...
  48. Jenni - I'm sorry, I think I made a comment about the clasp the other night after a few glasses of wine because I know there's a lot of fakes out there.My apologies! I'm constantly trying to find rese...
  49. Wow Joey - LOVE it again. Don't polish it too much. I am rarely jealous since there's enough treasures in the world - but I love these weird and unique creations.
  50. Thank you Betty - I just posted another for you to take a look at. That one is definitely Native American. Don't tell my friend (ha ha, doesn't go on CW), but I like your beads better than this neckla...
