New marble pics from my ecclectic collection

Hi to all,It took me awhile, but here are some of my marbles. I tend to get some pretty crazy when it comes to displaying or finding new ways to do that. I don't think that they should be in bottles, you can't really enjoy them correctly that way. Since one of my other passions is shadow boxing, I have had some new ideas yet to come to fruition, but I will keep you updated and post pics as I complete my projects. I am also currently doing major home improvements, so my life if pretty full right…See More

About Me
August 26, 2009

I am finally back online after 5 months. I thought I would miss it more than I did, but I got a Federal Grant in January and have been extremely busy trying to clean up my property and do some home improvements that are seriously needed. And of course since I live in Arizona, and it's a 'dry' 115 degree heat, well you can imagine. I have two people helping me and we only work early in the am or after the sun goes down. I prefer mornings as I have been bitten 3 times by spiders, 1 black widow, 2 vinagaroons. These strange spiders don't really make you sick, but your literally permeate the taste and smell of vinegar, and anyone close enough can smell it too. This to me is ironic because my grandmother always told me that a vinegar poltice placed over a spider bite draws the venom out and it works like magic. Not with these nasty little spiders. I also found out that my cancer was out of remission and had a two month short round of chemo, 1 session every 2 weeks. I kicked it before, I did it again. I had some side effects, like losing my long red hair (now I now what my true color is after about 20 years) but, it just hair, it will grow back. And the fortune that I am saving on shampoo is awesome!! LOL! Yes I have kept my sense of humor and have a good belly laugh every day, after all laughter is the best medicine. So, I live to see 100. I can't wait! Maybe by then, I'll have a marble collection that will rival Glenn's! My 15 and a half year old daughter, Hannah, emancipated herself and has moved out. She is doing ok, beginning college in January 2010, hopefully with a full ride because of her grade point average and general ability to do whatever she sets out to do. I miss having her here, but I know that she is happier and she is learning about life and excited by all of it. I still have my Papillon's and they are still making me laugh every day. My pond is up and going, and that is one of my favorite places to sit and read or write, listening to the babbling water noise (We have 3 waterfalls which then flow under our bridge and into a even larger pond). I am still shadowboxing, playing with my marbles, working on my front porch (I love rusted anything, wheels, handles, tools and have at least 25 cast iron skillet's and flat irons, all rusty and my porch looks like a page out of the old west/crazy Jules era. . I have about 30 different species of cacti which is one of my passions. You can't kill them and if you mess with them they poke you!!! LOL!!! My digital camera is defunct, otherwise I would post pictures of the Limoges Haviland & Co. tea set, sans the tea pot and sugar and creamer, only 3 tea cups, but it does have some unusual pieces, 1 small and 1 large relish or lady finger rectangle shaped plates, 1 large bowl, 1 small w/cover (both square), one large platter, 7 lunch plates, 7 small bowls, 7 small plates It is a uncommon pattern, but not complete. Very beautiful bone china and has the makers marks of the original company. Then I have another incomplete Leed Fransciscan Ware, hand decorated, each peice numbered by item and make. It's a lovely set. It has 3 tea cups, four tea plates, 4 small plates, 4 dinner plates, large platter, a salad bowl, a sugar and creamer and one 12 ounce tumbler. It's a very art deco pattern, as soon as I can get my hands on a digital camera, I will post them.. They are both in excellent condition, not a chip on any piece. If anyone knows anything about either of these two sets, please let my know and I will get some pictures online. Well that about brings things up to date, I look forward to participating in the marble club, I see we've grown to 13, super! I'm still kicking it hard in Hidden Valley, Arizona. Hope to hear from you all soon!!!!!! Jules

For Anyone who doesn't sleep much and has alot of creative ocd, this is just the tip of the iceberg-smile

I have been making shadowboxes since forever! Here are just two that I've done over the years. I really like to use the old wooden printers trays, they make the best ones. I currently have fifteen on my walls, and I am making one right now that is all animals. Next I'm going super hero's, which should be fun. It makes me sad when I think of all the people in the world that have alot of their past, in boxes, in dark closets, in drawers, never to see the light of day. Most of mine have stuff I… Continue

I collect antique hand-made marbles 1880-1910 vintage. In my opinion both are newer type marbles. The whole @ the pontil would not be found on an antique marble. It is tough to tell on the second one, but based on color, I think it is a contemporary marble. Wiyh better photos I could be more helpful.
