    Hi Katita and Jacqueline-
    Thanx for the help- I, in my craziest of dreams thought it was an Estee Lauder for some reason- I thought I saw it in one of her collections and or books- The mind is a terrible thing to loose- <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />
    Thanx again-

    I LOVE the solids- But in today's economic downsling- EL has just priced themselves out of my market- You would think they would come up w/ a couple that are fun and reasonably priced for us poor people- and instead of selling a few expensive ones- they could sell a LOT of fair priced ones- I would not be surprised to see them on the chapter 11 scene soon and not to be mean- but serves them right if they do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well speaking from a very near experience- I went to Italy for this New Years for 2 weeks- It is stunning- every inch of Italy was a wonder- but the Amalfi Coast was incredible and the Island of Burano was sinful- an Island of lace makers and seafood- Then back to Venice- Italy- I loved Scotland also- but Italy- History- food- awesome people and fun!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Margaret-
    Thanx for asking- All of Italy was incredible <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is beyond words- Unfortunately- We went in the rainy season and when we got to St. Marks in the am it had a few puddles- after our gondola ride and shopping and visiting the glass factories there- the plaza had about 1 1/2 feet of standing water and we had to walk on elevated platforms- We had the best tour ever- we saw Rome, Florence, Assissi, Verona, Pisa, Venice- the islands of Murano,Burano- The most AWESOME Amalfi Coast-Sorento, Pompeii, Naples- the Isle of Capri and everything in between these marvelous places- If we get a chance- Venice will be our whole destination next time

    So- ya all- if you get a chance- go to Italy <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think this could be a HOT new solid- I teach Art and would love to have this one- I would have used deep colored stones for the color blotches myself!!
    Maybe the EL corporate spies are reading and may come up w/ this one in the future!! <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    I will NOT <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> be buying anymore from the EL Stores-The Pink Lady is my last one- I will only buy them from eBay or other collectors from now on- At this point I don't care if they have scent in them or not- I have enough to make my display case smell good- I collect them for their look- not their scent-
    Let EL Execs eat it big time <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> maybe they might have to let one of their servants or maids go when we all boycott!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh nooooooooooo

    Mark has left the room!! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    Hi All- A very good and fun topic <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> – Thanx for asking

    My favorite????????? It isn't made yet- I keep anticipating the next new one will be my fav- But out of my collection it has to be the Jay Strongwater Birdbath
    The least favorite in my collection is the Youth Dew 50th Anniversary piece [only cause I had to put one]

    I am in Fresno, California

    I have 75+ EL Solids
    100+ non EL pieces

    I have been collecting for about 6 years and my 1st piece I got was at an estate sale and tried to sell it on eBay as a salt cellar and some lady on the WWW corrected me and I withdrew the auction to keep it and then I was hooked!!!!!
