    Well it’s Christmas Eve and all is well

    Except for one thing, that should be swell…

    Where are the ghosts from yesteryear,

    The ones who wrote and loved to share

    Their news about the latest finds

    Of Estee treasures (the perfume kind),

     

     

    I have no time to finish this rhyme and will check in later!      Meanwhile, Happy Christmas to you all and a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year……..

    If anyone is interested in any solids, please let me know.   I have a few I would like to sell as my collection is too large and space is becoming difficult.   There is no point in keeping solids tucked away in boxes etc., when I have no room to display them i.e. in the cabinets.

     

    Included in the items for sale is the Radiant Sunflower, Harrods Van etc.   Also I have two lipstick brooches which are very rare and a prototype American version of the Teapot.   The American version had the pink crystals and the English version only had the gold……    

     

    Please contact me through the site as I do not want to put my email address in this post…

    Hi Sandra, thanks for your welcome.   Believe it or not, have not been able to check in until now but it was heart warming to read your message.     I am finding it difficult to get back to the solid talk etc., but hopefully I will get into the swing of things soon.      I did go to the IPBA Convention last weekend which was held at the Holiday Inn, Leicester.     It is a great event as everyone is so friendly and it is also a good excuse to see old friends.  

     

    Have been feeling much better and am off the rejection tablet now.    I remember when you had all those issues years ago.      

     

    Am reducing some of my collection now and will probably list some on ebay.    Anything you are looking for, please let me know.     

     

    Still have the picture in the dining room…………   x

    A little late (it would seem) but was this before your visit to London?????????      Anyone in the group called Heston??    Mind you he spent some time in your part of the world so the Fat Duck could have waited……………………..    😮    I still haven’t been there Sandra……     x

    Hi Debbie, here is another ‘oldie’ checking in!     I stopped checking the site as I had some health problems but I live to tell the tale.    Yes, it used to be great on this site. Sharing stories and weaving them around the characters i.e. solid perfumes.   Meanwhile, have had a paperback published, but absolutely nothing to do with solid perfumes.    From what I can gather (although it is difficult getting my head around it) there have been problems here….   Sandra, I will look for your email address and write….    I still have your photograph from when you were in the U.K.    Pride of place in the dining room!      

     

    Will try and look at more of the conversations I have missed here on the site and do some catching up!…… x

    Hi Everyone,

     

    Have not been here for a while and now I also have a different laptop, finding it a little difficult to navigate the site and other things!    Hopefully will catch up………

     

    Hello to Jack, Swiss Lady (Brigitte) and Sandra.   Just saw your names pop up!

     

    Although I still belong to the IPBA UK Chapter, I have not been searching for solids and need to update on what has been happening with you all!   Had a bad year, but hopefully back to normal now!

     

    Hope you are well Lisa…?       And, of course, all my old friends who I have lost touch with………….x  Petals

    Hi Woody, Have been away from the site or a while but intend to resume the search soon!    Do hope you and everyone on the site are well….

     

    Can you give me an idea what this particular item looks like.    I shall do some checking around as well.

    Have just been reading a few of the comments.    Still not come to grips with my new Windows etc., but will persevere.   Great, really great to see some of the lovely names still tapping away.   I have yet to check out ebay to see the latest solid offerings………..

    Seems I have been missing all the news.   Thanks to Daisy, I have now reappeared after an absence due to torn ligaments etc., and hacked computer.

     

    Not good news re the Carousel!   Will have to look.  They were expensive when first released and it is one I have never managed to purchase.   The Imperial Princess, will have to look at that too.   Presumably these are buyers/sellers from the States and not U.K.

     

    I treasure my old solids but have got rid of the cameos etc.      Also am keeping my Harrods collection.    Either way, we have the Convention coming up soon, i.e. 26th September and alot of you folks from the other side of the pond will be coming and then making your way to Paris, France.   

     

    Woody, why aren’t you coming this year?   Promises to be he biggest thus far ……………….

     

    Nice to see some of the faces still on the site.   Things can only get better!    I have resigned from being a director on our board block, here so hopefully can get back into all of this again full time!  

     

    Sandra, I missed your birthday but my computer was hacked and I lost addresses etc.    It has been a nightmare.   Now struggling with Windows 10 after a disasterous time with Windows 8.2

     

    Hopefully now I can continue with laptop (as I learn).   

     

    Lisa and Jack where are you??????   Ann and Ken, and the list goes on and on…………..xx

    Well Sandra, you are very fortunate not to have bugs popping up!   

     

    Seriously, whenever I come on to the site (which has not been that often whilst trying to get my ankle  back to normal) I receive a warning from my security with a bug alert!      I ignore it now!    

     

    Do hope you are well and all that!   Have neglected Ann and Ken due to not having been able to run around!       It is over 8 weeks now approximately!    

     

    Friends want me to visit your part of the world.    Fly in to Melbourne????

    Hello Jack and Lisa,

     

    Where are you both hiding and do hope Lisa, you are well………….

     

    Jack, whenever I log into the site, I have a message and warning that there are bugs etc.   I just ignore it but wonder why it alerts my security Avasti………. 

     

    Really appreciate all you do and wish we could have the days back when everyone was logging in daily!     What a time that was too!

    Hello Everyone, Sorry not been following up but had an accident which left me with a very badly sprained ankle.   Not the usual sprain but ligaments as well.    Have been out of action etc., and unable to run around as yet…….

     

    Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible but am missing out on the fairs etc…………….
