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. Dimensions?
  2. Yes, the hardest working folks!
  3. JenniferH, the world of collecting is big. You will find your perfect items. My advice is "don't look in their shopping cart".
  4. Spirit Bear, comments?
  5. I have seen these paint sets too. I can't wait to see your prized item from the Rose Bowl.
  6. Wow friends, thanks for your loves. I have already worn this 3 times: Fort, Judy, OlddAsDirt, Kyra, Mani, Vnyl, Gudrun, Thomas and OfwhatIam!!
  7. Phil, do you think it was longer to wear over gloves? So gorgeous!!
  8. Tigra - thank you for your nice comment. Lentilka - yes, isn't it pretty and Re-In-Vintage thank you for your beautiful comment. Eileen - Jane and Veronica - 2 beautiful women who must have had...
  9. Ken - I was hoping you would recognize this! I thought it might be an old Trifari or Sarah Coventry...? sadly, no marks at all. Thanks for loving it. I usually watch online items, but when I saw this,...
  10. Jenni, thanks - This was a fun find and affordable because of the damage. Thanks for your comment. Thank you friends for loving this well worn old bag: kwqd, blunderbuss2, Judy, Kevin, Ken, Roy, ...
  11. I'm behind but thank you friends! It's like getting mail, but faster :-) so, that means one has to respond faster than snail mail too :-) Jenni - thanks, it will look great on a 60's mohair cardiga...
  12. Love, Love, Love!
  13. Glamouris, wonderful set! I love the colors and have always loved rhinestones in japanned metal.
  14. Yes, I think this is a 50's copy of the 1930's Miriam Haskell or Josef of Hollywood bracelet. I had to have it to add to some of my other matte, satin, serpentine silver items from the 50's. Thank you...
  15. Phil, I think so too. Beautiful, strong geometric design. Thank you for loving it. Thank you friends for your loves: JenniferH, Fort, Watchsearcher :-)
  16. Thank you Phil. I love these pins and clips. I certainly don't need any more! But, they are so fun to collect... Thank you friends for your loves: Fort, Watchsearcher, Vynil33rpm
  17. Thank you MrsT for loving this bracelet. I appreciate your comment :-) Thank you Watchsearcher for your love.
  18. Jenni - thank you! I haven't bought anything in a long time. This was special because of the serpant chains and the big (1940's feel) clasp. Bill - thank you - Hannah the hand is special even as w...
  19. Land of sky blue waters!
  20. Cameosleuth is the best!!
  21. Gudrun this is SO lovely!
  22. So pretty, I haven't come across this stone.
  23. And, maybe stop the verdigris on the back. I remember someone suggesting ketchup on a qtip to attack only the green areas.
  24. lentilka - this is so great! What do you plan to do with it?
  25. Love the bronze filigree components and setting. Yes, I think circa 20's-30's.
  26. I loved Pepe Le Pew and his obsession with the cat. This is a beautiful pin, great quality and whimsy.
  27. Such a nice bracelet - the colors are so beautiful! And I love your photos including the glass dolphin, also lovely. Thanks for staging both together. I love your posts :)
  28. Favorite time of year for me too. Very beautiful Fall Gem :)
  29. Love blue flowers!
  30. Eileen, if there is another color - Red! - it will come to you. Beautiful items to wear together! Love them and you :)
  31. I think you have quartz which has been etched to give interest. "Crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or mauve is often called Amethyst. Low grade material is often tumbled to make beads, ...
  32. I love these too!
  33. Cameo as in attach it to something else? No back pin, flat - but then what?
  34. Lovely....okay, I feel like I am always a downer, but what do the backs look like? Always important to share front and back.
  35. Rose, check my comment on your post of your beautiful pin - yes, I believe yours is gutta percha. My comment was about this pin which is glass. I love your brooch and this one is wonderful too! Both a...
  36. Rose, maybe some confusion on a recent post - yes, your lovely brooch is gutta percha.
  37. Beautiful! I love the mix of matte pearls with shiny rhinestones - and especially because they are blue.
  38. Very beautiful! I love the 2-tone green and would wear it all the time!
  39. I Love this! and the sweet waves! Jenni, how many Coro pins do you have?
  40. Yes, glass not gutta percha - both are very nice. But oh I love your beautiful pin!
  41. I agree with Gudrun, I think it's 70's craftsman Brutalist style. Very interesting large dramatic (ugly to some) pendant. I love this too. Keep it for a few more years. And agree with Elisabethan that...
  42. Peking glass, 1920's or 30's brass. Very pretty :-)
  43. So very nice! And all those lovely treasure in picture 3!!
  44. To me this looks like a necklace of dyed coconut or nut beads.
  45. Elizabeth - thank you for your nice comment....but Sharone, yes my pictures are not quite right - CRAP everyone is being so nice - these pictures look more red than juicy orange like they are :-)
  46. Not sure, Hubei mines seem to be greener. This looks like it is enhanced (stabilized, dyed) and faceted. That's okay and it is gorgeous.
  47. You can find a lot by going on ebay: enter glass snuff bottle hummingbird motif and work your way back from most expensive to newest examples.
  48. How big is this rock? Do you think it was formed in water or by someone forming it to a tool? It's cool, but you need to do research, maybe go to your local museum and see if they have other example...
  49. Gorgeous colors!
  50. Sharone - thank you for your comment. We looked at them, but didn't wear them this weekend :-)
  51. See more
