A Touch Of Green A Little Late

I thought today was St. Patricks day but no it was yesterday so my green finds are a day late.  So happy belated St. Patricks day.  All the following items are secondhand store finds.

This mid modern looking tea set is made by Arklow in the Republic of Ireland the pattern is " Rhythm" by Pat McElheron.

This green enamel flower brooch is one of three enamel brooches I've found.  I saw an idea of using them to make a flower bouquet on goggle images.

This Pyrex bowl is the Spring Blossom 1 pattern.

This is a vintage Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale pop bottle.

"What A Wonderful World"
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.
I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Written by Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss

This song was recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1967 it wasn't a hit in the United States at this time but it went up the charts in the U.K.
I was surprised to learn this as I always associate this song to Louis Armstrong right away it's my favorite song by him.
This song I think fits with the thoughts of Spring.

  1. I can here that distinctive deep voice singing that song right now! Thats all right I showed up with all of my green on Friday morning! Thought it was St. Patricks day!

  2. Loooove the teas set! Visiting from The Scoop.

  3. What a fun premise you have here at your blog. Terrific round object to share in the vintage brooch.

  4. Lots of rounds here besides the brooch such as the old pyrex bowl, which I found at a junk shop (its twin) to replace the broken larger one in a set of three I got for a shower present many years ago>

  5. Belated Happy St. Paddy's Day to you with all your green. Valerie

  6. Love the Pyrex and the ginger ale bottle too. I remember my grandparents always had ginger ale at their house. I loved it!

    Big Hugs,
