I collect many things - old plastics, jewelry, textiles, graphic arts and other neat things. I also enjoy road trips and nature's treasures found along the way. (Read more)

  1. Bill - I am finally responding. There are some of us of a "certain age" who remember exploring old places because our parents didn't care and they weren't looted yet. Mine was a fully stocked cobbler'...
  2. Mrs T - thank you for your nice comment.
  3. Keramikos - I appreciate your wonderful research! Thank you for sharing this link on Godey's Ladies publications. I am thankful I didn't live or dress in those times. But, I enjoy research of fashions...
  4. Eileen - thanks for loving! I LOVE 1940's too and have some good patterns and fabrics and LOL bakelite buttons, buckles to make a suit or a long coat. Love that your Mom helped with your Renaissance f...
  5. Thanks everyone for the comments: Dave - This print was damaged in shipping - the glass broke on the lighter print. So I decided to take both out of their frames and there are a few white scratches. ...
  6. Yes Dave - the 6 lambs!
  7. Yes! I LOVE these. I am keeping the matts, but might cut them down to fit in a smaller frame, not sure yet. One arrived with broken glass, so I thought it was better to take both back to their origina...
  8. Thank you Thomas for your love. Thank you Scott - yes, they are really great! I love the bright hand-painted colors. It must have been a hard sell right after the Civil War.
  9. Can you post all 12 pieces please.
  10. Thank you ho2cultcha friend for your comment about this mixed stone item. Yes, I love roadtrips around California!! But, I have to admit I lost my travel vibe mid 2020. I have been a bit depressed sin...
  11. THAT is funny apostata!
  12. Very dramatic dyed shell necklace that someone made fairly recently. And what a great job they did! Wonderful presence.
  13. So wonderful! Great you found the fur clip. What a nice set!
  14. Someone made this cute necklace. Orange could be carnelian or agate. You also have sterling beads (looks like Bali) and the bone fetish bead. Very nice.
  15. Are the beads plastic? The green ones look like glass. I LOVE this and especially the strawberry bead caps.
  16. Happy 2022 dear Elisabeth! This trip was great, many interesting old cemeteries, towns and here and there - a junk store with beads like these! Wisconsin has many wonderful hidden treasures.
  17. Phil - I love this picture of my dear mom who passed away in 2021. Thank you for your expert color work on it. It's a treasure.
  18. Fun and fierce! It does look like it could be a homemade piece because of the braided leather trim. Nice and unusual.
  19. So beautiful! What type of flowers would have been in the baskets? Small blossoms like lily of the valley, hanging over a little? So unusual and I'm sure you were nervous until it arrived in all one (...
  20. Thomas thanks for this fun post. I still prefer pencils for everything I do, but most of them have crappy erasers, so I have to purchase a good old pink eraser. I also like vintage advertising penci...
  21. So many treasures! Love your collections. Happy New Year.
  22. Or it could be a sheet music cabinet.
  23. Happy New Year Thomas! 2021 was a really tough year for me too. I wish I felt as positive as you!
  24. Happy New Year! Look forward to seeing your bar.
  25. Nice fossil specimen. Fort, I had the same problem with outages down here in Long Beach, especially Tues and Wed. I was working customer service from home all week and internet kept shutting down whic...
  26. Thanks Jenni for your greetings! - I know about Long Beach, NY. It's been on some movies and someday I'll visit it and of course enjoy Long Island. Last night there was quite the party with fireworks ...
  27. Thank you dear Eileen for looking and loving this oldie. Thank you Jenni and Merry Christmas to you too!
  28. Now days 2LB.NET would be some internet address....hee hee hee....
  29. That was good Vynil! I love the box graphics but OUCH wouldn't want to get nicked by it.
  30. So many goodies! Love the purple art glass, Yogi Bear spoon, upcycled? black bead watch fob, the copper necklace. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you dear friend!
  31. Wonderful collection! Thank you for sharing and Merry Christmas Daisy.
  32. So wonderful, thank you for sharing your Santa hoard!
  33. Are there any flint carving arrowhead groups near you? My friend in Missouri went to a workshop and knapped a few like these for me. I used them in jewelry. Not sure but we have have some experts on C...
  34. LOVE tin advertising!
  35. Looking again at this wonderful brooch, it does not look like a Mexico design....then what is it and who made this? It could be Greek or Spanish or from NYC Met Art Museum? All possible and great. I l...
  36. Oh wait, could you donate to me? I love the colors and I rarely find cool glass out here. Do I have anything you like? LOL
  37. Sorry I missed this gorgeous lady. Perfect and what a wonderful find! Thank you again for helping me with my smaller 1940's manikins. XOXO
  38. Eileen - Here's to Champagne and Sparkling Blush with our loved ones over the holidays!
  39. Eileen - I miss Judy and Bonnie too. They've probably moved on to other forums. This is a very nice necklace...it's not heavy because the motifs are only about 5/8". I'm sure it is at least from the ...
  40. What size is this? These stone spheres are popular and you might find some more info online if you search with "gemstone sphere - and the size"
  41. I think this is a tin litho pin from the 50's/60's....and most were made in Japan. I collect these little pins but I haven't seen this one. We have experts like dav2001 who enjoy military and will he...
  42. Wow, I think you should send it to Mr. Tom or at least make a xerox of the wonderful graphics.
  43. Very pretty.
  44. I hope you are home now? Or waiting in Toronto airport? It must be so stressful for you trying to get back home. Thanks for chatting with me about this fear AND about our passion for collecting. 3 of...
  45. The 3 added pictures are great - thank you.
  46. Thank you dear Eileen for your comment about this. Yes your Mother loved her silver! Are you thinking about her especially during holiday season? I'm thinking about my Mom and she really "left" 2 yea...
  47. Please delete my posts that don't relate to your lovely "maybe Hattie Carnegie" post here. XOXO
  48. Loving a signature is really sad.
  49. Nothing here to love or comment on so I wonder why our friends did. Maybe the mention of designer name Kramer?
  50. Sponge coral? Howlite dyed beads?
