Have been collecting for 40 years and mostly enjoy jewelry, old plastics, Native American jewelry, textiles. I love road trips. My dad said my first words were "can Have been collecting for 40 years and mostly enjoy jewelry, old plastics, Native American jewelry, textiles. I love road trips. My dad said my first words were "can I go too". I look at this recent picture of me and I see my Grandpa! Happy Hunting friends! (Read more)

  1. I buy gemstones and beads at shows like Gemfaire and Tucson and have bought pearls like these - pretty - not great quality. Anyway, mine aren't plastic, your's aren't either. Some vendors sold long kn...
  2. I have missed you - thank you and love these. Amazing as always!
  3. Beautiful!! Gorgeous design and colors.
  4. Hi Rose - White bakelite has oxidized to a pale or deeper yellow - it is extremely rare to find any white bakelite because of the nature of the chemicals. I think this might be a 60's or 70's lucite b...
  5. Beautiful Rose!
  6. What a wonderful friend Jenni is! It is exciting to complete a collection and very special when another collector friend helps it happen. They are very cute, I am glad you have them all together Eilee...
  7. As always - nice finds Bill, and some lovely Christmas gifts here, lol. I am putting up decorations tonight with a friend visiting from TX. It was going a little slow because we disagreed on my vinta...
  8. Very different and so interesting, what a great set! I love everything you collect - these are so unusual. Would the woman who collected these be a hunter? I really love them :-)
  9. Another sweet tweet post - love your cardinals. I learned they are state birds for 7 states thank you Thomas and Jenni :-)
  10. A lovely Christmas basket - you find the prettiest jewelry. Happy holidays dear!
  11. Very pretty blues!
  12. Jenni - sorry, I meant our CW friend Balstonelake found a lot of great pins at a recent auction....spelling these names can be challenging for me (tee hee).
  13. Wonderful bug!
  14. It belongs to you! But, now you have to find the other 2....and you will. Love these both :)
  15. I love AbFab, I don't remember that, but I am sure Patsy said it. LOL
  16. Jenni - first off about St. John, I guess that was their image, but they had beautiful knits! It was a bit too classic for me then, I certainly appreciate it now. About working, yes when we are yo...
  17. Jenni - I find most of my online goodies from the 3 sources you provided. rl is probably the most expensive (that's where my Rebajes tragedy came from), but they all have their pros & cons. Auctions a...
  18. Love this birdie. So gorgeous! Nice large, dramatic piece - it would be so cool to find the mate. Thank you for your research too, will have to look up that book.
  19. This must be worth some $. I love it, what a find!
  20. What fun! And don't you love auction surprises? I love the "star" drop earrings and cat pin in #3 and the purple flower w/stem pin in #4. Also, think you have some Renoir copper earrings in #2. It's a...
  21. Jenni....we should take this off CW just in case I swear LOL....The newspaper was a weekly for 5 different publications. I started out there as a graphic artist and well - it was a small paper and so ...
  22. When you log in to CW and this post there is an "edit" button on the left side. Hit that, add another picture and make any other changes. It's fun to post.
  23. Carnelian? Pretty!
  24. I missed this because it isn't listed in jewelry here on CW- very fun! Love it.
  25. So beautiful! Do you think it's 1870's?
  26. It looks like an item made for a church.
  27. Eileen - sometimes I wear a lot of jewelry....sometimes only a few on each arm and fingers LOL. Just depends what looks best. Well, honestly, more is better. Thomas - lovely seasonal colors? Thank...
  28. Eileen - thank you for your comment. Pretty fun isn't it? I just need ONE more...and I am putting it out there in the universe - a blue one. Phil - thank you for your comment! Birds and flowers are...
  29. Jenni - thank you! Eileen - I don't know about those copper parties and I have a few copper boxes, but no candy dishes or plaques. My copper "home" items are older, more in the 30's arts and crafts...
  30. Jenni - I worked at the La Jolla newspaper from 1987-95....the ads she used for our newspaper were just logo ads. I remember big pins and other enamel jewelry in her store. I think your pin is around ...
  31. I recently saw similar rings online. They were "circus sideshow" souvenir rings. But I agree with Dizzydave - probably a seal ring.
  32. So cute Jenni - yes the famous Marie Grey known for knit suits. I met her during my time at the La Jolla newspaper. They had a store there. I remember seeing a lot of jewelry. I bet Madeleine Albrigh...
  33. Jenni - Happy Birthday! I love your posts when you merchandise items together. Where did you find this archer? It is wonderful!
  34. So great! Yes, you have the BEST pins!
  35. Hello procellp53 - was it a green fabric ribbon? probably? Thank you for posting!
  36. Thank you Watchsearcher and Fort for your fast loves! Jenni - yes, falling leaves! You are too kind, the pictures look a little fuzzy. I took them in a makeshift photo box - a muslin closet organiz...
  37. Jenni - thanks I love these birds and now looking for a 3rd. Thank you Watchsearcher for first love, and Fort for your love :-)
  38. Thank you Fort for first love!
  39. I was there last year for Christmas lights! Thanks for sharing.
  40. Share - thank you - I really love this design. The seller was such a nice person and she didn't want to let it go. Passing a beloved item to the next one for awhile? Elisabeth - the metal beads he...
  41. Thank you Elisabeth! It's not as nice as your wide black carved bracelet, but what I can afford because black goes for $$$. Understandable because black is classic like you said. XOXO Thank you Ann...
  42. lentilka11 - I'm glad you like it, thanks. Elisabeth - I think it's rare, it was repaired over the years though....you can see the clasp in pic 2 is missing the chrome tube on one side? But, I hav...
  43. Hi Jenni - thanks, yes - some of the strips are 5/16" wide. Obviously made in the woman's lap, each block quilted and then all sewn together. Thank you friends for your loves: bobby725, fort, ani...
  44. Thank you olecody - wouldn't it be cool if it was Tiffany, oh well, nope but nice and I love it. Hate to hear of old historic buildings gone to the wrecking ball. Dear Elisabeth - thank you for yo...
  45. Kristin - this is gorgeous! Maybe late 1890's early 1900's? Maybe rolled or gold-filled? I love it! So elegant.
  46. I have never seen these before. Wonderful! They look brand new as you mentioned, probably never worn. Yummy!
  47. I love it!
  48. I would LOVE to have this set! Thank you for sharing.
