  1. The suitcase is 40's or 50's and the stickers are new, but you know that? The size seems right for some type of office machine....
  2. Very special! Love them. Hope you wear them in best of health.
  3. Love love love your Love Birds! Happy Valentine's Day!!
  4. So gorgeous, classic design. Beautiful color Eileen!
  5. Happy Vday dear Share!! These are so beautiful my friend XOXO!
  6. Jenni - thanks Happy Vday! Heart rocks are pretty neat. Ken - thanks, I love the bakelite heart, wore it today. Happy Vday! Friends - XOXO - bobby725, kwqd, Thomas, Kevin :-)
  7. Jenni - thanks yes it was very serene. So easy to travel, just rent a car. I think I commented before it's good to book lodging before and take time driving around Iceland slowly during the 24-hour ...
  8. Thanks Maureen - used to find sterling charms everywhere for $5 or less, no longer the case. Yes, I think a sewing charm bracelet for little sister is next.
  9. Oh yes, I had this album in 1978. I was blasting it while painting my Grandmother's house and she ran out "you just got a call for an interview tomorrow". My first job out of art school - Modern Lith...
  10. Have you contacted RMA yet? Pretty magical I agree w/Share, Jennie and Lauren.
  11. The color w/gold is so great! My favorite is the top right in pic 1. I love anything with a Rococo 40's vibe. All lovely!
  12. Or they put a frog or a spongy thing in it to poke flowers into. Looks like it was never used. So pretty.
  13. I love your walls! Is that Whistler's Mom? Are those ink pots in pic 2? Love the portrait of man in #3 and city/river in #4. Definitely my kind of wall art!
  14. Jenni - it really should be a brown bear, so I'm on the lookout for that. I believe that parking tickets alone pay for the upkeep of our cities! And how about those confusing "no parking over 1 hou...
  15. Thank you dear Share - this kind of silver can't be compared to our favorite N.A. examples, but it's pretty great isn't it?
  16. Oh my, I love this! Yes, it looks like a clamp thingy one would put on a muffler to hold the soda pop can repair....hee hee, only because I had an emergency repair like that some years ago. It was tr...
  17. Eyeglass holder?
  18. Oh I agree about loving Lucite, also celluloid - not just bakelite for me. I love the old plastics. And, still some great designer pieces made today but we tend to be overwhelmed by the mass of cheap...
  19. Well thank you for thinking of my little charmed life obsessions :) That's a linen postcard, isn't it great?! Love you Share! Thanks for loves Fort and Phil
  20. Hi Share!! I have a loupe and I have the testing kit we bought at the swap meet...I have to find it LOL, There are faint smudges that might be marks. I think it's a Viking item. Definitely not N.A....
  21. Just noticed there are 3 on ebay today. Everyone looks at CW posts and jumps to their desired conclusion of what the item is. Sadly, mostly not as dedicated to research as we are.
  22. This necklace is listed on ebay right now. Seller seems to be pretty sure it's bakelite.
  23. Loving this again Rose. Beautiful bracelet and especially since it was your Mom's.
  24. But aren't you glad you have it back? It's so wonderful! Yes, it's still in the family right? :-)
  25. Such talent he had! Very nice design. Thanks for your research Jenni.
  26. Phil this is so gorgeous! Gorgeous colors and design.
  27. Very sweet brooch Jenni!
  28. I see the lobster clasp, so I don't think it is bakelite or very old. I have items like this that were popular remakes in the 90's-2000's.
  29. Thanks for this post - I still have not visited and mean to as part of my Valentino obsession.
  30. Wonder what happened to the earring hardware?
  31. I have had a few regrets too. We get rid of some "less favorite items" and then, second-guess why. There's no right or wrong time, sometimes you have to sell. Having photos of treasures helps. My big...
  32. Watchsearcher - YES, dress the mannequin in beautiful gown and jewels!! Such a lovely idea! I love dressing mine too in my jackets and simple sweaters to pin my treasures on. Thanks for your nice comm...
  33. Beautiful work! It's so gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your expertise!!
  34. Allotted 1890?
  35. I agree and love all of these. Hard to pick a favorite but am in love especially with the glass birds. I love the pink enamel rhinestone brooch on left - so gorgeous! You find wonderful brooches.
  36. All wonderful as always, you have amazing collection of pins/brooches!
  37. Wonderful collection! Great close up photosshowing details.
  38. So gorgeous! Great condition.
  39. Eileen - you mean MrsT cuff - WOW is that gorgeous! The mix of pastel colors, "fruit salad" is so pretty.
  40. MrsT - this is a really lovely clamper bracelet. I also have matching earrings and brooch. Eileen, thanks for your research about Hollycraft. Isn't this a beautiful bracelet?
  41. Eileen - thanks, it's a pretty timeless D&E design, not too complex, lets the design and colors shine through. Hope to meet you in 2020 or as Bill says "the new roaring 20's).
  42. Eileen, thank you - it's fun to collect these colorful bakelite earrings.
  43. I bet your mom looked great in her denim and silver glory and enjoyed wearing and sharing it. Thank you Eileen :-)
  44. Eileen - some leather and suede is GREAT from Mexico and some is a bit stiff. The purse w/long fringe! Wow, I would love to see it. I couldn't afford a leather jacket until 1982 and it was from Wils...
  45. So pretty!!
  46. Nice! And thank you for your great research :-)
  47. Green turquoise is often from Colorado or Nevada mines. This is very gorgeous!
  48. Sorry, not sure if it's repro or 60's or older. What kind of string is used? Beautiful necklace and great pictures.
  49. Fort I have both of these, but mine came in the individual boxes obtained by Royal jello/pudding box tops. I don't think I saved one of those boxes. Your TV scenes are so great!
  50. Possibly ironwood "a wood from olneya tesota tree commonly found in Sonora, Mexico". (northwest Mexico, southwest US) Thanks for telling me the length, makes me think 50's/60's . I am not really sure,...
