  2. Very found of this Traffic song too. And it might sound dorky, but I post "Back in the high life again" by Steve Winwood every few months since crap hit the world. In fact, I am going to listen to it ...
  3. Not even confetti Gillian.
  4. Happy Mother's Day to you and dear Michele!!
  5. Dave - I am out of room too. Very sweet.
  6. Thanks, the 4th picture really helps. And, it's pretty new artisan design on "memory wire". It's possible that the plastic beads are vintage. Very unique.
  7. Happy Mother's Day Eileen! Thank you for my gorgeous gift!
  8. Great research Eileen! I didn't know about the fake Weiss trend, although you bring up the basic collector lessons: being careful, looking quality over and educating ourselves.
  9. Fun, you can take one more picture uncoiled. I've been doing some online searching lately too, and was surprised to see the term "stardust bakelite", that's a new one for me in 40 years of collecting ...
  10. So fun - I love it Daisy!
  11. Daisy - thank you for your comment. My grandmother Marian was a young 25 yr old nursing student and in love! in that photo.
  12. welzebub - I am sorry I never responded. Thank you for sharing your friend David Huchthausen's amazing website and bakelite treasures. Yes, an incredible collection!
  13. Lori, I saw a matching Barclay bracelet yesterday online. It wasn't too much money.
  14. Thanks for your comment Daisy. I wish I knew more about the blue bracelet - it's unsigned. Thanks Lori for reminding me to add a little or a lot of history to each post. Thanks friends for the ...
  15. These are nice artisan necklaces, fairly new and very interesting.
  16. Very cool! You have many t-shirts? I have to ask because I always kid my friend about his mounds of t-shirts "You could strap these together and make a bed and/or a few chairs". I think that's a good ...
  17. Very funny, this is a resin tusk. ha ha ha!
  18. Sorry I don't know, thinking maybe Kuchi Afghan tribal?
  19. Daisy, I knew you knew what era this set is from. It's such an amazing and gorgeous Sherman set. I admit, I like bracelets and brooches most. Love the clouds too again.
  20. The flower brooch!!!
  21. This must be the find of the year! - Really amazing! Thank you for giving the measurements, helps me visualize. Just gorgeous. I am sure you can find the matching bracelet. Can you imagine the elegant...
  22. Definitely a Statement! Is it a choker? I agree, it doesn't look like Mexico design. Could you post a picture of the back? How great to find the bracelet later!
  23. I love these colors!
  24. No, not Art Deco, maybe Moderne?, or maybe just lovely 1950's. Anyway it is really Amazing and so lovely. I love your cloud photo too, gives a beautiful mood.
  25. Great research by keramikos! I remember seeing this in 1981 Vogue magazine. It was advertising the cuff bracelet Collectables59 mentioned by designer Patricia von Musulin. I believe it is ivory. If yo...
  26. These bottles are much sought after!
  27. Yes, really fabulous!
  28. Gorgeous!
  29. Thank you Lori for looking at this old post! I love this beauty, but I also love the costume examples. From too many years ago - thank you Kyra and LauraH for your comments and friends on CW for yo...
  30. Thank you Eileen! Definitely not 90's jewelry. So flipping amazing and in my favorite color of green. Seller hid the fact of the Redo. I was mad for a little while, but the price was decent. It was m...
  31. Thank you Fresh Air for your nice comment!
  32. Thank you aura for loving this.
  33. This is worth a lot of money if it didn't have that little chip....
  34. Oh I love your story! I love secret clandestine purchases in a garage!! So beautiful! Way to go dear husband for spotting it!
  35. Andrea - this is so gorgeous! Enjoyed hearing from our experts about this lovely necklace. I LOVE pale rhinestones. What a treasure to find on CraigsList!! Hey, hunt and find. So beautiful! - Mary
  36. Yes, so lovely. What are the dimensions of the brooch and/or earrings? Always good to include sizes for someone like me who wants to know. :-)
  37. Thank you Lori, so sweet! Beautiful MOP pin with 2 birds. Happy Mother's Day early to all Moms too!
  38. Because it is heavy?
  39. Pacem thank you for your kind words, so nice! Lori thanks for your kind words and it's so true. Good to keep alive stories, record and share them so that memories of them continue. Thank you. Th...
  40. Eileen - thank you! I know you have lost so many loved ones. And also gone through all the stress of downsizing and selling an estate. Thanks for thinking of me during this time losing my Mom. XOXO
  41. Karen - thank you for you kind sentiments. It was joyous and now a week later I have even more laughter and sadness being shared by family via photos, memories and little treasures. Phil - thank yo...
  42. Thanks CW friends for your loves! Fort, Kevin, Jenni, kyra, Karen, freshair, Scott, Thomas, watchsearcher, marmorealmaiden, Dave, officialfuel!
  43. Eileen, old workshops with tables and tools are really great. I WANTED some little things like your little porcelain dogs but I didn't ask and it wasn't the right time. There were 2 amazing workbenche...
  44. Andrea - editing, saving from desktop should work. I had a heck of a time with my latest post. Pics were from my iPhone where I edited them from, saved to my desktop and they still weren't oriented co...
  45. Sorry, I'm thinking this is fairly new based on the beads that I've seen at Pier1, Chicos, Cost Plus World Market from the 90's-2000's this type of glass beads were abundant in designs from jewelry to...
  46. Sorry if I come off bossy. I search old plastics all the time and I have some questions to put out there for other collectors about this. This style of affordable to all, 60's-70's plastic beads fu...
  47. Okay - thanks for taking more pictures. If you could cut anywhere, could you pull off a bead or they all fused together on the string? Picture 3 is not clear and that's the only place I could offer m...
  48. Wonderful!
  49. Same here about liking adjustable rings more!
  50. Love this pale blue color, perfect for Easter. Here's another tip I just found out w/pics on my last post. If you take pics with your phone's camera, it helps to edit them. You could crop, rotate im...
