#17520 Greetings!

Posted by blackvelvette on 02 June 2005 - 12:52 PM in General Lauder Solids Talk

Thank you everyone for taking the time to send warm messages of welcome. I wish I had done this earlier! rolleyes.gif

Like you Gigi, I too was a lurker and am so glad to come out and join the lovely members here.

Jacqueline, I am from SUNNY SINGAPORE cool.gif I wish that we had these Conventions like the ones you have in U.K. and the U.S. because then collecting becomes an active passion!

Lisa, I received the King Charles Spaniel Solid as a gift 2 years ago.It stayed in the cupboard all this time until I spied the Classical Clown on eBay and fell hopelessly in love and when I saw the Carousel it has been a wild ride on the Merry-Go- Round tongue.gif

I only have 12 solids (for now!) but admittedly the Carousel is my favourite...the details are amazing to say the least.

My wish is to meet the JESTER and take a ride on the MAGIC DRAGON but I think that will take time.

Don and Margaret I hope Max is well. I have 2 dogs myself and they are like my family members. I sometimes feel that they are human. blink.gif

Well I think that is enough chatter from me for now.I am certain I will get better at this as time goes on.

To Lisa and Jack, this site is # 1 and I am so glad I surfed in. wub.gif

Thanks for the photos Lisa. It was really nice of you to take the time to send some of them over to the site~ smile.gif I enjoyed them for sure and even tried to identify the solids you had in front of you~ tongue.gif

At the same time it was sad to hear that sales were slow. Hope you had a great time with the members though and everyone enjoyed all the other attractions Las Vegas has to offer!

#18675 Empty Solids On Ebay

Posted by blackvelvette on 03 August 2005 - 10:36 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

My collection really covers the Circus and Mystical Themes. smile.gif I am therefore very keen on

purchasing the Lucky Dragon. But I am wondering if perhaps I too should wait to get it at a lower price

because there is nothing more disheartening than seeing all that

money going down fast and furious because I was impatient. ohmy.gif

On the other hand... I see it everytime I log on to this website and my resolve just weakens rolleyes.gif

#19202 Difference Between 1999 + 2000 Carousel

Posted by blackvelvette on 23 August 2005 - 02:35 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

QUOTE(Lisa @ Aug 22 2005, 03:51 PM)
I don't have either one but I think the saddle on the white horse is "extended" on the 2000 version.

I also know one had a round box (1999) and the other a square box.


*please correct me if I am wrong cuz not sure blink.gif

View Post



Hi! Here is a close-up of my Carousel. It came in a round box, and as per Roselyn Gerson's book, it is the 1999 version.

I think the Carousel in the database might be the 2000 version, rather than 1999 as is labelled? unsure.gif

Hi Maddalena,

I wish I could help you by telling you how to upload the photo onto the site but the truth is I AM HORRIBLE at stuff like this! sad.gif
In fact my daughter helped me with that post wub.gif

She has gone out now but I could ask her how she did it when she gets back. It will be no trouble at all ! wink.gif

Could the lovely ladies here help Maddalena?

#19815 Concern For Collectors/members

Posted by blackvelvette on 05 October 2005 - 03:42 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

Hi Everyone:

Singapore checking in! : tongue.gif

Have been having quite a busy month because I had my cousins here from Perth for a week and that kept us on our toes .

Unfortunately my sister suffered a stroke in the middle of all that and she has been in hospital . sad.gif
She has recovered quite a bit but there is still a long ways to go. dry.gif

Other than that, things are fine smile.gif

Thank you for thinking of the "MIA" members. It is concern like this that makes this site unbeatable and the members a great bunch! wub.gif

#19892 Here Is Our Exclusive Tx Solid

Pamela,

Did your brochure feature a yellow dragon as well? I think we'd all be interested to know if this is a mistake in the brochures or if there really is a different international version of the dragon.

Hi Catherine,

No, our brochure features the red dragon. I must say the gold one is beautiful though!! wub.gif *drools*

Here is a picture. smile.gif
