    Yeah, thanks for the heads up – the Rickshaw sounds promising.

    Thanks so much for info. I agree with too many dragonflies. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    I'm laughing here big time concerning the dragonfly. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> Agree with everyone else's comments about this. But what's really funny for me is that Neiman Marcus this year also has a dragonfly. Both of these stores (Saks and Neimans) in my opinion compete with one another. What is EL thinking? Apparently once again not too much concerning us collectors. Without seeing pic of Saks, I'm guessing there is a slight variation between the two, BUT STILL!

    This is a real busy time for me right now. Last week it was Rodeo Week where its the biggest thing in our community for the whole year. This week I have a class reunion. Haven't had time to call my SA at Saks in Denver. But I am on this site daily and am loving the “Spooky Forest” story by you all.

    Take care everyone,
    Gigi

    Hey Gigi, methinks someone at EL has an obsession with insects! Does anyone know how many dragonflies have been done over the years?
    Saks and Neiman both also have horses if you count the horsedrawn sleigh. Wasn't the prancing pony last year?

    Alright folks, I was challenged by Ar's question and have spent the weekend counting insects <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> :
    Dragonflies: 5 (2002, 2003, 2008 and two 2009) and there is also a dragonfly powder compact!
    However: the insect winner is butterflies with a count of 8 solids (and one powder compact).
    Runner up is beehives where you can choose from 4 solids and two powder compacts.
    Next is ladybugs with only three solids but no less than five powder compacts. Last year came a spider solid and I've also found a tiny fly on Strongwater's Radiant Sunflower. I think I have managed to cover all insects by this but please correct me if I'm wrong <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> While at it, I also took the time to try and count the numerous amounts of cats and dogs and it turns out that the dogs are the winners with 14 solids whereas catlovers only gotten 12 solids <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
    Hope you've enjoyed the statistics!

    Excellent job, Karin. Perhaps next year they'll come out with an “Exterminator.”

    Far too many variations of the Dragonfly, yet they all look alike…sort of.

    Karin – That took time…I AM impressed. I do wish EL would have come out with at least ONE MORE “Carousel” rather than all the variations of the Dragonfly. I would gladly pay $450 Retail for it, even though the original was $250 (which at the time I thought was outrageous.)

    Looking at the price of precious metals today, and pewter is sort of a precious metal, I can understand somewhat why prices have skyrocketed…Retail, that is.

    Oh don't we all wish there were another carousel?! Someday I hope to tell you all my story about being robbed of my Carousel in Australia by a zealous SA….. too tired tonight. But am sure they would charge over $1000 in Australia for it. Yes $250 was a good price but how were we to know it was the one item that EL would not repeat time after time despite the “limited” label we've all come to distrust so much? <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />
