A Silver Bell

I love thrift store shopping don't you? 
It seems I'm always on the lookout for the same things.  I'm getting very good at zeroing in on anything silver or white.

A few weeks back I happened to spy a silver bell and it instantly reminded me of my Grandmother.  She collected bells with a passion.  Hundreds and hundreds of bells.  As a child I remember the hutch in her kitchen filled with them in all shapes and sizes.  Every time we visited, my sister and I would study each shelf trying to pick out any new additions.

When I spotted this silver beauty with all her pretty curves I knew I couldn't pass her up.

It may not be one of Grandma's bells, but it reminds me of her and makes me smile.

Have a lovely day,


I'll be joing these parties:
 Tuesday's Treasures
Vintage Thingie Thrusdays


  1. This is so sweet, you definitely found a pretty one to remind you of your grandmothers collection. Your spooky hutch turned out pretty cool too, just the right amount of scary! t. xoxoo

  2. What a beautiful bell. As soon as I saw it it reminded me of my grandma, she would always have some sitting out. :) I love things like that that bring back special memories. :)

  3. What a sweet memory. I once bought a dresser that had small little drawers in it, just like a dresser that my grandma had, because I always remember as a child looking at the jewelry that she kept in there. What ever happened to your grandma's bells?

  4. Love the bell and how it reminds you of your grandmother! What a great way to honor her! New follower visiting from Tuesday's Treasures!

  5. I love your clock and that bell is so pretty and how sweet that it reminds you of your grandmother. I love thrift stores and to be able to shop there is always a thrill.
    Hugs, Cindy

  6. What a sweet little silver bell. So glad that it reminds you of your Grandmother.

  7. That is one pretty bell Robin...I love the detail on the bottom. ~Deb~

  8. It's a beautiful bell! I have some things like that, that remind me of people, even if they didn't touch them.

  9. There are a lot of bell collectors. What a great find! They are so decorative. Plus...you can use them! They can be heard over ipods if you are trying to summon kids to dinner! LOL!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
