A Simple Silver Sunday Blog
Whew, am I tired. For the past week, I have been visiting some pretty amazing places, all from the comfort of my magic carpet. I am participating in the One World One Heart Journey. I have to say that I saw some really nice silver give aways on this trip, including some fabulous mercury glass votives that I am keeping my fingers crossed that I may win. But today is Silver Sunday and you will find me here, feet firmly on the ground ..... in a very cold 6 degrees Maine. Thankfully, at least it isn't snowing, yet.
Silver Snowman on the door is getting ready to be replaced with lots of hearts for February.
I had prepared for this post ... my photos were taken .... but the Internet decided to be slow, very slow, very, very slow. You get the idea. I was able to upload only three photos, so I have only one silver treasure to share.
My father-in-law passed away several years ago. In gathering things to post for today, I remembered the old silver watch belonging to him that was passed down to us. There had been an old cigar box that Joe had used as his safety deposit box of sorts, and that was where I found the watch ..... and much more.
There was a silver crucifix, a silver/black pocket knife carried daily and something silver and blue.
It was a bookmark lovingly made by my daughter when she was 7 and given to her beloved grandfather, Sepe. I never realized that it found safekeeping in this treasure box, put there by Joe himself. I guess he felt that it was a worthy treasure. I would agree. Not everything valuable has to be sterling silver.
(I'll save those for next week -- see you then.) Please don't forget to say Hi to our host Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for throwing this great party.
