  1. Good points Pebble! Thank you.
  2. Thanks Ken - aren't they neat?! Thanks also to Ironlace, Moonstonelover, agh, Dr. Fluffy, lentilka for your loves :-)
  3. Well I love everything! Thanks for sharing. The red w/chrome looks most familiar to me as Bengel or German. I really like the green/chrome and wonder what the original necklace looked like. And, love ...
  4. Thomas - thanks, I see you now! Handsome man :-) I'm not a gun person either, but definitely a music lover so I always think of that first with your posts. And, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  12. Such gorgeous Blues! Love everything, especially the brooches :-)
  13. Such fun items! Bakelite or galalith w/chrome mostly came from France, Germany, England. I haven't seen any of these before, but the red/chrome might be German in the Josef Bengel style? (or is). It's...

  16. Happy Thanksgiving! What a fun post - I remember Spam at my grandfolks farm in the early 60's, but my mom and dad weren't fond of it. :-)
  17. I LOVE this too! I try to find these tiled tables, no luck at all. Way to go :-)
  18. I like large brooches and these are ALL so beautiful! I love them, thanks for sharing. :-)

  22. Jenni - thanks, yes I love the design too. Phil - vintage watches are pretty fun. Lisa - yes - so fun to have vintage watchbands. I try to find windup watches to join with them. I have a few oth...
  23. Yes, little creamers or for syrup - personal as in room service size.
  24. My guess is yours: for little critter sacrifices. Hmm, if only 4" across? maybe on a buffet table for lightly ground herbs, seeds or greens?
  25. Did you look on the blue tax label on the right for more dating info?
  26. A very amazing collection!
  27. There are 2 very active groups on Facebook and they are also happy to comment.
  28. Love it! So many interesting goodies, colors, cultures, conversation pieces.... that's some great eye-candy in your dining area :-)
  29. Really?
  30. It's beautiful Terry! Welcome back from your summer of love and pain w/unexpected deck costs and health. Thanks for sharing. I love chip inlay. It's beautiful, one of our experts will know. I have ...
  31. Do you have a jewelry loupe? Set your camero to Macro, shoot through the loupe?
  32. Can you take a few more pictures a bit further away to show the whole lovely necklace? Thx.
  33. A picture of the earrings please?
  34. Phil - thank you for this great research! Both of these brooches are SO gorgeous. Thanks also, I was able to make 2 new collections today. It's still a little clunky procedure though. My original coll...
  35. What are the dimensions of this lovely clip please?
  36. What size please? Sweet petite 1"?

  38. Love, soft pink and fuchsia with dainty framework. Very beautiful!
  39. Very beautiful, the glass cabs are gorgeous. Thank you for your research -)
  40. Jenni, I LOVE rhinestone jewelry but came a little late collecting to find special items in my price range - already expensive. Your collection is so gorgeous! Thanks for sharing because now I look ev...
  41. Sorry don't know. My guess is plastic. We have cameo experts, hopefully they will chime in.
  42. Intricate and beautiful! I could take this off your hands too if you feel you have too many :-)
  43. A beautiful marriage!
  44. Very beautiful! Yes, looks like the triple maples from your Coat of Arms! Love it. To see Marlene Dietrich!! Also love the last brooch, history please?
  45. A very nice collection! Hope to meet it next year :-)
  46. Jewelryantiquelover - or on a sweater, or vintage shopping purse. Fun to tag. Phil - not sure about composite from 50's mirrors. I've seen those. I hope my brooch is lucite from the 70's but I hav...
  47. Beautiful set! Coming off 1940's baroque and blending into graceful, classic 50's styles? Love it :)
  48. Yes Jenni - I love this budgie overload!!! All so fun. Great comments from our friends. I like the ceramic tweets best. Thanks for sharing your love of birds. Now I have to find these :-)
