How do you take your #coffee? I like cream, no sugar.

Comment on Facebook

I like mine with cream and sugar

Loads of cream, loads of sugar. In other words, a smidge of coffee in there. 😉

BLACK COFFEE MATTERS!

Black

black

The same as you .

same

Black

By the gallon

Milk and sugar

The same here.

Ditto, Dr Lori!

From Dunkin

Cream with a dash of coffee mate chocolate creme!

Not a big fan of Starbucks. We make our own as much as possible.

Stevia, 2 T. half & half... I'm tracking calories at the moment...

Black ...

Yep cream no sugar..the cream has to be a pretty color

Cream and stevia!

NO Starbucks!! But with cream and sugar

Bitter and black, sometimes, iced!

If it's a Lifeline then it has to be black. If it's for the pure joy I've having a cup of coffee cream only no sugar. I truly believe coffee is a food group.

The same,cream no sugar.

Just coffee. Hot fresh coffee.

Black COLD BREW over lots and lots of ice.

I would. But, I only have one thing needing appraisal. You could not do it. Because it needs to be a hands on appraisal. Hopefully. I can one day get to one of the places you do that. 😊.

Hoping for another day this great offer comes up. Thank you

Sharing for you...

Old photographs give clues when researching ancestry, family #history.

Comment on Facebook

My Gramm gave me tin types before she passed, and had all the cabinet cards blown up into 8×10s, some from the civil war period

I have a tin type photo from the civil war era that I bought in my local goodwill months ago for 50 cents. Definitely a piece of history!

Do you keep old photographs?

Can I pay u to help with mine?

Reporters often ask me:
Q: What is the most interesting object you've appraised, Dr. Lori?
A: There are too many to name. I've been involved with objects for decades.
Here's one: Queen Victoria's gold and pearl pin with intertwined hearts. It was a gift to a lady in waiting from the Queen, late 19th Century. It remains in the family.

Priceless.

#Travel memories: Monte Carlos city pool. 

Would you make use of a pool like this?

Comment on Facebook

Public pools are nasty.

No.... I grew up on a lake. A pool is too tame for me.

Oh hell yes, I love to swim. But with COVID 19...🤔 IDK.

The ecoli and sundry of contaminates are very inviting.

Like to swim with fish and shade trees and rocks and sand ohhh a lake!!

Looks like a beautiful place to be!

Love a little time in the sun but not a big water fan. I live on a river in Idaho and gulf in Florida but just to look at. Lol

No way. I don’t like public pools. To me they’re like public bathtubs.

I prefer the ocean! 😁

No. They don't make water wings in my size. Lol

Yes I love to swim

Not at this time

Yep

Private pools are better..you, your chaise lounge, glass of wine, good book..ahhhh no screaming kids running around.:-) lol

Definitely !

I would if I knew how to swim! Ha!

Ooh, I loved Monte Carlo! Was there a few years ago and still have the black tee shirt with MC spelled out in sparkles... LoL. Couldn't resist playing China Wall slots at one of the casinos and won! Great memories 💗!

I love it, yes!

Monte Carlo? We must've not gotten our invitation!! Stay safe!!

Uh yes....

Yes, I would love this right about now!

No, but I loved Monte-Carlo and I found it to be very clean. Can’t speak for the pools.

Si

Are you inviting me? I’m a Pisces they love anything to do with water and artistic.

Vintage farm and country decor.  Tell me, Cowbells: Love em or leave em?

Comment on Facebook

Love them. But then, I'm German and we don't just use them for cows, we hang them around our husband's neck. Lol, just kidding.

Love the cowbells and the fabric.

I have two-not vintage. I kind of like them.🛎

More cow bells ... I'll find a place for 'em

I like them; especially the roundish one. I have one like the other one.

Love em

I would lose the bows and use twine.

Not my thing. Leave them to the cows 🐄

I love all antiques. Cow bells, smudge pots, old feed scoops, etc, etc.🙂

I'm a sucker for farm things 😅

Love them! We have a set of Ox bells that we dearly love.

Love my cow bells, spurs, bits, etc...

The cow bell has been my dinner bell several times.

I love the bells, but without the ribbon. They would hang on my front porch with my antique bits, barbed wire and other rusty farm junk.

I have two that were my Grandpa’s, they hung on two large work horses that pulled his plow. I would never throw them out!

Just inherited the cow bells that my grandmother (Farmor) used to have in her kitchen to call us in for lunch/dinner! She passed away about 1 year ago...😔🕯💔 Now I just have to find a beautiful hook and hang them in my own kitchen. ❤

I’ve got the fever...

Meh...

I Will have to get The good doctor to give a Aprasil on our 🐫 camel bell collection.

Love 'em! ❤

We had one and took to every kids graduation. Lol 😂 when we sold our car it was under the drivers seat because the kids wanted to find and throw out so I hide under drivers seat

Love old metal and rust!

Love the bells, but lose the cutesy bows.

Anything vintage or antique I love

not a fan
