Things I Could Not Leave Behind

Do you ever feel like you are going backwards instead of forward? I feel this way quite often.  Lately for me it's been the weather, a couple of weeks ago I was wearing my Capri's and flip flops then that was done and I had jeans on again and the umbrella back out. Yesterday we had another nice day and I was out working in the yard, it was nice to feel the sun on me.  Of course I live in beautiful British Columbia, rain will again come back but  B.C'ers roll with it.

I notice new life finally starting in my yard.

This delicate lovely plant is Solomon Seal,
 this picture is from last year as its actually just started to come up.

I found this double honey pot holder at a local secondhand store,
it was just so special I couldn't leave it behind.

This apron is finished on both sides which gives you two looks with one apron.

I collect paperweights and I saw this one with this cute bulldog on it and it went into my basket.

I love this bag I found another one with a different saying and picture  on it a few weeks back and posted it in my Monday, 11 March 2013 Coffee On My Mind post.   The pink and white small Pyrex bowls are a nice find I'm always happy to find a piece of pink Pyrex it doesn't happen often.  This lovely flower mug has a Spring feel to it and was made in Japan.

These cherry blossoms look so cheery.


  1. Oh my gosh, I just LOVE that bulldog paperweight! I am green with envy! :)

  2. Love the double honeypot! I would have grabbed that too!

  3. I LOVE the honey pot! I'm really into bees these days, and I'm Irish!

  4. I love pink Pyrex too! That apron is a work of art!


  5. Great finds! I love the double honey pot, too! :)

  6. Great finds, my favorite is the double honey cute! Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  7. What lovely 'finds' - the aprons are fab - and I would love to put one of those honey pots on my table at tea time - such vintage chic!

  8. I loved the honeypot and the bulldog (I have a French Bulldog) but have to say I laughed out loud at the bag:-) Love it!!!

  9. Pretty sure the paperweight is actually a pug. In photo it seems to have a curled up tail instead of a docked or short tail. All the same it is very cute.

  10. Pink Pyrex will always make my day, whether I am finding it or reading about it on someone's blog!


  11. Nothing worn with your second time around goodies. You found some great items.

  12. Second time around is just too fun. I love to go shopping in antique stores, thrift shops and church rummage sales. A person never knows what one will find there. Thanks for sharing your finds.

  15. Love your collection of aprons!! very nice and those honey pots!! We keep one on our table all the time!!

  16. Good Afternoon Denise, I have never seen a piece of pink pyrex before, although I do own a few cream pieces. I love your little dog paperweight....isn't it unusual, my daughter would love it. I enjoy visiting Charity shops and finding treasurers. I have found you at Claudia's My Favourite Thing. It is lovely to meet you and I have become a new follower.
    I would love it if you had time to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! I look forward to seeing you there.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes

  17. Flowers Are beautiful an I love antique and second hand shops.
