Finds & Gardens

The following items are some of my favourite things to find when I'm out at garage sales, flea markets and second hand stores.

This paperweight caught my eye right away as I have nothing like it in my collection it also made me think of Carnival Glass.  I found it at a small parking lot flea market and the person I got it from had it marked by A. Held.  I looked it up on the Internet and only found Robert Held who makes glass pieces.  His studio is Robert Held Art Glass in Vancouver, British Columbia.  I found some vases by him that sort of remind me of my paperweight but no paperweight like mine.  I can not say for sure this is his work.  I enjoyed the chance to look at some of his work.

This piece of Pyrex is a piece from a refrigerator set in the snowflake Blue pattern.  It was a surprise gift from someone where I work who also collects Pyrex.  What a great gift.

These pictures are from around a friend of mine's yard.  She has a beautiful yard with quite a few flowerbeds, a wonderful pond by her patio and a large vegetable garden.  The butterfly brooch just kind of fit in with the garden theme and belongs to her daughter.
The pictures of the bike were sent to me by her daughter to add to my blog.  I love old bikes but do not own any.
