Ruth Wallet



Ruth Janet Shaw's 1960 drivers license. No photo identification needed! This was the only thing I found in the wallet. Interesting how the wallet is monogrammed Ruth G. Shaw but her drivers license says Ruth Janet Shaw. If only I could get away with having a wallet this small..oh and my name was Ruth!

Bakelite in My Future?

My upcoming Birthday next month means only one thing....Birthday presents for MaryDeluxe!!! This year I think I'll try to snag a few pieces of bakelite for myself from an upcoming auction. I haven't been to an auction in really long time....I have been so so good on my budget and I have also been working like a crazy woman. So, what better time then to treat myself to something frivolous then on my Birthday. There is going to be 40-50 pieces of yummy bakelite there and here's a few pieces that are the cat's meow! Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

This is my favorite piece followed by my next favorite...





These are just some of the outstanding pieces of bakelite. There is also a nice selection of the basics.....pins, bangles, and etc. Do you have a favorite piece of bakelite jewelry?

Happy Vintage Hunting,
