  1. Thanks for sharing, very nice tins.
  2. So lovely! Do you think early 60's? Long earrings to go with shorter 50's or 60's hairdo's? Gorgeous! They look like earrings a glamorous gambler would have worn at the casino in a 007 movie....
  3. I've seen these type of clips before too. What a nice collection! I love the purple shoe too.
  4. Watchsearcher - you are right about double knit LOL. I was never a fan, but as the years went on if I found fabric at thrift stores with interesting pattern I bought it. I have a LOT of the Jean Hardy...
  5. Phil - thank you, he was the nicest guy! I was in my Lefty Frizell groove for this. Because the band was down in San Diego, I never got to see them play. Hmm... Thomas, Kyra and Jenni - thank you f...
  6. Kevin - thank you for your nice comment, that's soutache trim, less than 1/8" wide with a "ditch" to stitch in. I went to fashion college for 2 years specializing in pattern-making. AND, the entire 15...
  7. I love the color combination!
  8. Have you tried bleaching? Right now mine is on the window sill, gets lots of good hard dry sun. I want to dig up my beloved Valentino bird. I'm sure she is a very nice skeleton after 12 years in the ...
  9. Thomas, I'm telling everyone!
  10. Watchsearcher - thank you for getting this. Do you have any patterns? I still cart around my mostly (ha ha ALL) vintage patterns hoping I'll use them again. Isn't it a great feeling to make clothes th...
  11. Thank you Watchsearcher - yes, it's piping, also on yoke and cuffs and the brown trim with green embroidery was my creation too. Geez, no wonder I'm blind now.
  12. rockit - it is a very popular motif, but maybe it's old! We both know the design IS old. I'm sorry, it looks too shiny and perfect to be 100....
  13. I love the 3 screechers best! You got a great picture Bill! They are so beautiful. We have plain green or yellow wild parrots here in Long Beach - loud and proud! Love the ship brooch mucho bueno. An...
  14. I love snail mail.....chick mail!!
  15. Thomas, thank you so much! You are a sweetheart!

  20. artfoot, amazing! Another reason to love CW - people who know their stuff!
  21. Great post! Nice skulls. Did you bleach these? I'm not sure what to do with my seagull skull from Iceland....ick! it's about 90% bleached with some dirt or ....? in the nooks and crannies. Sorry TMI.

  31. Yes, agree w/Share - spiny oyster. It's very nice!
  32. Yes, agree w/Share - spiny oyster. It's very nice!
  33. Wonderful! How big are they please? It could be that the chess/playing card buttons were for late 1930's-40's fitted jackets. They remind me of Surrealistic style of that time including Schiaparelli d...
  34. Eileen, your sterling items disappeared? That's not good, sorry to hear. In my family items that have disappeared are quilts, photos and ship's log around the Horn on the way to the Gold Rush. Not m...

  40. Very fun Thomas. Actually....you will be surprised that artists and designers still use pencils for sketching. I can't sketch with a pen. I have a calendar on my cell, but I also carry a dorky mont...
  41. Phil - mine aren't marked because they are base metal? This one is nice and heavy. I love it. Thanks :-) Share - I don't solder either, I used split rings on the US states bracelets. XOXO Thoma...
