Steamboat & Lighthouse Are Here!
Posted 13 January 2004 - 09:41 PM
Ya'll are making it hard to wait to get my hands on these little darlings.
My liking a solid always depends on how well I can use it in a display which really isnt fair.
I liked the bustier untill I tried to fit it in with the rest.
I want to do something different with the lighthouse and have some ideas but will not know until I try if it will work.

The Pilot is stopping for a burger:
Not as great as Woody's, but super-fast!

Thanks Woody!! It was good of you to send the photos! I like them both.....but I think that I really like the River Boat! It's hard to say without seeing them "in person". Michele, I just saw yours and they are wonderful also. Thanks to both of you.

Don't know what took you so long Michele?!
Many thanks Woody for getting the show on the road..........and to you both for the great pictures. Next time hope you will all go 'full steam ahead!'
All the pictures were really good including the water effect!!

I am not enamoured with either of these solids, but will reserve judgment until I too can see them in person!

The red "stones" are crystal baguettes, as are the windows...light blue. The top is red enamel. The base has teensy crystal specks all over it...looks like rock with moss on it plus it glitters. Lovely.
It took me so long because I logged off right away, assuming Ann & Ken were doing their thing with their new toys. We do eat once in a while...but later than most (around 7 or 7:30 p.m.). So....I didn't log back on until after 9 p.m.
Hope this helps...I'm still not sure what to do.

I like the Lighthouse but I don't care for the grass. I order the Lighthouse so hopefully I will like it better in person.
So far I like the Bustier is my favorite of the 2004 solids.

Flood control was a setting that required a delay of at least 30 seconds between posts. It has now been eliminated, no delay is required. Thanks for letting me know it tripped!

I'm still getting use to the location of the page numbers. I just saw your photos they are great. Thanks for the photo with both of the solids together. The steamboat does look a bit short.

I agree that the steamboat needs to be longer. The ones in New Orleans look a little different. I bought a steamboat pencil sharpener from Stuckeys a few years ago and the deminsions are better.

Ron - You're very welcome...thanks for mentioning it. Wish I had been here when everyone else was "on board" (get it? "on board?" ). Doesn't take much for this group to turn into a mob scene, does it? Wow!! Thanks so much to Woody for his great, timely photo's. Love 'em!
So I said to my special guy..."Honey, I think I better put the car in the garage. It's really snowing out there." HINT! And he replied..."Better wear a warm coat...it's a long walk and it's really coming down hard." D&*#....
