  1. What a darling frog pin and as always an amazing restore. :-) I love it and wish it was hopping across my sweater.
  2. Lucite was made by the DuPont company in the 1930's. It's another old wonderful plastic like bakelite and celluloid, fairly strong and used in jewelry from early days and most popular in 60's, 70's, 8...
  3. It's probably Celluloid or Lucite as I mentioned before.
  4. Phil, I hope you are back in best of health soon. Happy Valentine's Day my friend.
  5. Eileen, charms from colleges, Disneyland, the MJ Leaf!!(topical and fitting), a wine bottle - so fitting as well! Something that says Hollywood, a tuna or flying fish for Catalina, a battleship for S...
  6. And on the subject of California chatting w/Eileen: There could be charms from colleges, Disneyland, the MJ Leaf!!(topical and fitting), a wine bottle - so fitting as well! Something that says Hollywo...
  7. Eileen, the one I didn't buy on ebay had a loop. It was only $8 and I was in my cheap a** mode, never saw it again. Sterling charm bracelets are personal to their owner. They are little conversatio...
  8. So beautiful, the colors and design - that's ken magic!
  9. Eileen - thanks for sharing these darling Valentines! I wish I still had mine, I remember making the Valentine box and walking around the room dropping anonymous cards inside. Love the history of your...
  10. Modern. 50's or 60's.
  11. My collections don't work anymore - not for the last 6 months which makes me sad. Love your good luck brooch!
  12. Alan, thanks yes very nice bird cages with little birds on perches inside. I know I can do better with some of my other charms, but it is going to take awhile. Thanks for your nice comment.
  13. Phil, if I could find a Reagan or Nixon charm - that would be very cool. These charms were slowly gathered....XOXO my friend.
  14. Is the lighter bakelite? Nice finds.
  15. Interesting item and great research from Watchsearcher and you.
  16. What a great restore, as always dear Kyra!
  17. So fun - love those cherubs too!
  18. That is such a good, wearable length - looks good with everything.
  19. This is so great!
  20. Yes, Jenni - ALL things California - buildings, churches, missions, prisons (ha! I wonder if Folsom has a charm), palm trees, cactus, Reagan or Nixon's head....the possibilities!! Thank you friends...
  21. Bill, thank you for always thinking of me as your #1 Mary. AND, you just reminded me that I need to send out Valentine cards to my sisters, girlfriends, guyfriends, a special guyfriend, my parents.......
  22. Malkey - thanks for your comment. I love the postcard too - beautiful color and design! All the best to you too. XOXO
  23. Thanks for the close up photos. I bow to your bow :-) But, I don't know about your "banana" set....looks like a seed pod?
  24. This is not worth anything so please send it to me. Because I LOVE it.
  25. The design and cut of the items looks 1950's. Eileen suggested brasso on the back and I agree. I am sure you will be careful with brasso on the front of the pin in case it is not solid copper. I thi...
  26. I think you're right - artisan street fair, maybe 1970's.
  27. Bill - Wow - I agree w/Mrs T, the bracelet is really wonderful! Bali 1980/90's w/garnet. Of course I love the turquoise necklace most! And the bow tie is very sweet :) Great finds! True, when you get ...
  28. I really love that necklace!
  29. Share - ha ha ha - well the plane is a big bird! I am still looking for the right link bracelet too. I have one....but am afraid it will be too small. XOXO dear! Phil - The swinging love birds are ...
  30. Wonderful Bonnie!
  31. Love it Bonnie!! So interesting and definitely artist made. Happy to see you again in these posts :-)
  32. Very nice! Possibly Peking glass? Czech glass? If plastic celluloid, if stone - wow could be turquoise as Kyra said. So Nice!
  33. Way To Go! Lovely addition to your orchestra. So exciting to find another treasure to add to your collection :-)
  34. I LOVE TOO! How wonderful my friend. Is it 18"....oh your pictures are great showing that beautiful red shadow. Great find!
  35. Kyra - Yes, it will be great! But it may take me a year to balance, design and attach....I've learned that it's important to start with a long bracelet. I have a small 6.5" wrist, but need to have a 7...
  36. Fort, as soon as I posted I realized it's 710 driving north by Downey that I was on .... how embarrassing. Thanks for not slamming me for being on the wrong freeway. Yes, I think you have more rain t...
  37. MrsT - thank you for your nice comment! Thomas and Fort - thank you for your loves!
  38. Love your pictures! The mountains yesterday on I-405 near Downey - stuck in traffic - looking up! Amazing! I did think of you my friend :-)
  39. Nice to see you again - beautiful green vase.
  40. Very sweet - thanks for the link! I love these darling cards.
  41. And, the world's best coffee too!
  42. Would be pretty to see your butterflies all pinned together on a dress form or clinging on a pashmina shawl...!
  43. Hunterqlee - thank you for your love.
  44. Love old advertising tins!
  45. Jenni - fun idea right? You could pin your bird brooches on a dress form. Thanks for taking the time to give me some sweet tweet talk about my other obsession - Birds. Broochman - thank you, they...
  46. Very nice, I'm guessing Celluloid or Lucite. Love it!
  47. Oh my goodness, what a deal! Very nice - perfect Winter piece!
  48. Nice mix of colors. How many colors did they make? :)
  49. Very beautiful! I agree with the comments, all very gorgeous!
  50. Great brooch and lovely glass heart! I need to see if I have some VDay goodies to share. You wear this heart on Valentine's Day right? Love you too XOXO
