A Bit Of This And That

This post is of my finds and also a visit to one of our local garden shops.

All my finds were found at secondhand stores.

This paperweight reminds me of a raindrop or teardrop. It's a great addition to my collection.

This pink and red brooch is an unsigned piece and I believe it is vintage.

Vintage Chip and dip bowls with metal holder and Ruby Red accent.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to one of our local garden stores to pick up sea soil potting soil and while there I took the above pictures.

  1. Love that vintage chip and dip set! Growing up we had a similar one and I made sure that it became "mine" when I was all grown up! It always brings back happy memories. (Onion dip was my favorite!)

  2. I've never seen a glass paperweight in that teardrop shape before. Really cool! Ooh, and I love old chip + dip sets for serving chips and salsa or hummus.

  3. I love vintage jewelry and stopped by to see what you had found! Love the pretty flowers, too! Have fun!

  4. Such fun finds and all those images you took of the flowers are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing at Silver Pennies Sundays. x

  5. I especially love the water feature and blooms from your nursery trip! I'm heavily into gardening these days!

  6. So many pretty things! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  7. How fun to take pictures at a garden center!

  8. Gorgeous shots of those flowers. I hope you brought lots of pretty ones back for yourself.

    My father had a paperweight collectin, and I always marvel at their complexity. Love that one, and it does look like a teardrop. Very pretty. All three finds are are great!

    Droping by from Claudia's. Have a super weekend.!



  9. I have that same dip and chip bowl. I use it all the time. I think it is cute how the small bowl is above the larger one.

  10. I remember those chip and dip bowls! Such a great idea. Love the flower photos - I haven't been able to get to the garden center yet this year, as I'm working away from home. Can't wait!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week.


  11. Those are awesome! I love chips and dips and now I love chip and dip sets!
