    Brigitte –thanks for the fast reply on the button

    My EL button tops are all made from plastic and are the same as in the book. All the buttons I have or seen are different because of the swirl in the two different colors of the plastic.

    I thought I had a black one until I took it out in the sun and it is green like in the book. I was trying to find out how many different color buttons there are and thought I had a different color from the book.

    Do you have a different button made with real stone????
    Is this a question I need to ask about on the call???
    Did they make a special one from real stone???
    How many colors do you have??

    What do you think about putting the Lone Star powder (boot) with the boots???
    I didn't think of some of the matches until I saw yours , thanks for the ideas. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Thank you Brigitte!!

    I recently found the filigree watch and this is the first time I have actually seen it in a picture.

    Love the Apple….Am trying NOT to acquire too many compacts, but when I stumble across the old ones it is difficult to resist!

    Ann, you are right. I took one top of as I saw that it was badly glued and it is plastic. I never did examine these, as I always presumed that they were real stones. It seemed to me that these stones are not that expensive and therefore never even thought about them not being real….I was wrong….should have checked better, sorry.

    I have 4 different colors, green, dark blue, red and beige, which sometimes turns into yellowish.

    Tthe boots have been added, no problem.

    Brigitte–

    How about matching the Golden Coin powder with the three different Lucky Coin solids???
    They look real good together.

    Ann,

    I will gladly ad it if you send me a pic of the powder, as I only have one copied out of an EL brochure.

    Ann & Ken,

    thanks for the pic, has already been added.
    Do you by chance have the crossed heart too????
    I only added the 2 lucky coins from 1979 as the one from 1998 is alike.

    Here are some comparison pictures of the Golden Coin Powder and the three Lucky Coin solids.

    The 1979 Lucky Coin and the 1998 Lucky Coin look very much alike, however, they are very different in size. Also, the 1979 gold colour is different than the gold in the 1998 coin.

    Brigitte,
    You have a wonderful collection of matching powders and solids. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> I always enjoy viewing your website, especially the prototypes. Thanks for adding this new page.

    Ann and Ken the pictures of the coins are great. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> The gold coin or Roman coin was for sale on Ebay last week or the week before. I had never seen it before and wasn't sure if it was really Estee Lauders compact. I'm glad you cleared that up. I really liked it a lot so I bid on it but didn't win. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> I can't remember if the bidding ended in the middle of the night or if I had gone out before the bidding finished. Oh well, hopefully it will show up on EBay again.

    Brigitte,
    I miss the solid Frog compact from 89/90 with the enamel Leap frog powder compact. As I've mentioned before, it is the only match I have and I just love it because I find it so perfect. Also, it is the exact same frog that is sitting on the lily pads on the Prince charming ones. This is certainly the best “double match” of all!! (As you may have seen I am out to get the Prince charming powder compact to complete this super matching frog pond.)
