I thought I would be better prepared this week for Silver Sunday. It has been a bit of two steps forward and one step back, not to mention having a sick child all week. So here is what I pulled together. Thank you for stopping by to say Hello.
First of all, a thank you to Jill at Gypsy Brocante. She has posted a winner of her fab blackboard trays. Sounds like she has something for next week as well. Please check out her site.
This is my favorite piece of silver. It is a cherished family memory and keepsake. I believe it is a christening or baptism cup. I am hoping that my learned blogging friends can provide some feedback on that. It will still take a polish but I prefer the tarnished flavor of the piece. There is a face on the handle, and it is engraved with the name Annie, my great grandmother. I don't have many treasures from my Dad's family, very few actually exist, so I am thankful to have this.
Not sure if it counts as a Silver Treasure, but my daughter, age 5, in her silver ballet costume, is a family treasure for me.
I don't usually decorate with silver, but I tend to be drawn to shiny silver frames. The mirrored frame is my daughter's (yes, the little ballerina) High School graduation photo, the one next to it is of me, age 2, with my cousin's college cap, and the three little girls are my sisters, with me off to the side, wearing our Easter finery.
One of my favorite little silver frames, holds a photo of my mom on her wedding day. I have also included the silver grapes from my bowl of silver fruit, shown earlier, from my best friend.
Finally, here is an an unassuming silver tray. I just purchased it yesterday from Goodwill for $.99 cents. The tag still shows. With all the wonderful blackboard trays that I saw last week at Silver Sunday, I am getting ready to create one of my own. Thanks for all the tips and tutorials on the subject.
Thanks again to Beth at http://thegypsyfish.blogspot.com for hosting this party. Please be sure to check out her post and all the other participants. See you next Sunday.
