Oooo I'm loving it!!! And I say "first"... because I still have 2 more on the way! ๐Ÿ˜„

ย 

Post some CAC flames while I'm waiting on my next package please ~ย keep me drooling!! These have gotta be one of my top favorite marbles. I'm not so into the striped opaques or guineas, but these flames have my heart... and my wallet! ๐Ÿคฃ

ย 

(Edit: Whoops... I just realized that 2nd pic has 2 of the exact same photo! LOL! My bad, lemme see if I can fix that... ... and, FIXED!)

I'm a little jealous.ย  I've always considered these out of my reach.

Maybe I'll start saving for some lookers like this.ย ย 

For now I'll have just enjoy others' from afar.ย ย

Teaser pic of the box I just opened...

2 CAC flames, 2 Alley... shimmering spruces I believe?... and 1 absolutely stunningย MFC brick.ย 

Not sure if I should try to take some pics now, or try to sleep in preparation for the 4 hour drive to Indy... well, I have some laundry almost done in the washer -- I guess I'll take some pics until my laundry is done in the dryer!ย

Very, very hastily thrown together -- little tiny pieces of fuzz, where do you come from?! Why can't I see you until I'm zooming in and cropping the pics?!

Here are a couple Alley flames which demonstrate how favorably that company's best marbles compare with CAC.ย  Then a 3/4 CAC in the classic colors of that company.lavflame.jpg.8850cbda1e223773b3f94191cba6ea28.jpg3colorflame.jpg.08df1a31a136d509eabc84910685b30e.jpgbigflame.jpg.8d7c31b705e97552574e7a9ae40822aa.jpg

Sneak peek of what I'm settling in to crop & collage right now... new ones from the Indy Show!

Ok that one there isn't a flame, lol, but it's still new, bought at the Indy Show.ย 

You might think that's a picture of 4 marbles. But no, that's actually a picture of an empty wallet!ย :lol2:

Haha, thread might need a warning: "BIB NEEDED TO CATCH DROOL" ๐Ÿคฃ

I love all of them of course, but I actually think I have a favorite out of the new ones -- it's the first one. The flames look like wings to me!!! ๐Ÿ˜ (and anyone that knows me, knows I loooooove wings... I have a full back tattoo of wings!)

I just love love love it!

Look at the wings!

The bottom left pic in the collage is where the top 2 pics come together. It's not a flaming mib, it's a flying mib!!! ๐Ÿ˜ So freaking cool!!!

Ooo I wanna see! Hey it was you that had some for sale on the bay recently, wasn't it? I was eyeballing them HARD... Especiallyย after the price dropped to 5-something. ๐Ÿ‘€ Once I got another paycheck I looked for them again and they were gone. *sigh*

WOWย  The blue base is exceptional!

๐Ÿ˜ I was only gonna buy 2 out of the 3, but couldn't make up my mind over which of the 2 white based ones I would leave behind... ๐Ÿ˜‚ The blue one was obviously going home with me. Then between the "wings" on the one, the awesome coverage/pattern of the other, and the deal he cut me for all 3... I didn't have to pick & choose! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
