All that Glitters.....


Hello everyone! Happy November 1st and greetings from rainy Vancouver Island. I would like to share with you my latest treasure which I recently discovered in one of Victoria's thrift stores. On occasion, I enjoy stepping into a couple of thrift stores in hopes of finding unusual 'things', which I do not need, but rather enjoy. It seems that I am incurably addicted to sparkly brass and become rather weak in the knees when I see old brass candlesticks. I also love bells and have a small collection which I enjoy listening to - or for decoration. Oh dear. I am certain this 'condition' will soon pass and I will recover. In the meantime, I will keep on collecting until I have no room in our house. I welcome any advice on how to overcome this plight. Thank you!

This blog entry is a little different than my previous entries, but, it is all in fun and that is what we are here for at "Mich's West Coast Journal". We must have fun and do what makes us happy - right !

Here are a couple of brass bells and candlestick photos! Thank you for visiting and sharing in the fun. Warmest wishes. Michelle

You have some lovely treasures for sure, Michelle. I have some myself that was given to me from my mother's collection. Nice assortment of bells.

This is an extraordinary collection, Michelle. I agree … there is something about bells and brass that is hard to resist!

Hi Mitch - I was glad to see you back and have meant to comment on your nails post but have been so busy. I'll do that after this though. I loved seeing your collection - especially the second picture with the large curved foot bells. My grandmother had one of those and my sister inherited it. I love to see it each time I visit and though the ball ringer is unconnected now I remember the sound so well. As a child I loved to ring it. Mitch, I think that's what blogging is all about - just taking a few pictures of the things that come to mind or are part of your life or memories and sharing them with your readers. Thanks for sharing - it triggered memories for me.

Great finds Michelle! I'm a big Thrift Store shopper too and there's quite a few in Sidney, isn't there? Maybe I've bumped into you in one of those shops and never knew it!
