Today is the final Silver Sunday (Session 1). A big thank you to Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for hosting this party and for continuing with Silver Sunday (Session 2, which will now be just the second Sunday of the month get together). It has been fun. I have met some great ladies and had a chance to see some amazing silver, in all their tarnished and polished glory, along with some fabulous bling. We were dressed to the nine's for this party.
So pull up a chair, silver of course, and sit down for a spell and let me show you what I found.
These are some of my favorite things for entertaining..... silver crowns with a wire ring. I use them as place card holders or to hold menu descriptions on a buffet table.
You can never have too many knives.
Both of these pieces were recent Goodwill finds, $.99 cents each.
This cake stand is another Goodwill find this past summer. I loved the amber glass/silver base and based my Thanksgiving table on this color scheme. I found the matching silverware (a service for 10) for only $.25 cent apiece.
These are family pieces. The My great grandmother's baptism cup I have already shown. The other two pieces are from my husband's family and came down from Quebec. The silver piece with handle I believe is a candy dish but I have always displayed it with the two handed cup. They have been polished so many times, over so many lifetimes, that all that now shows is this beautiful soft tarnished glow.
This letter opener also came from my husband's family, from his grandparents. Just having these pieces around provide much needed and appreciated continuity, a link to the past. They have no real monetary value but are priceless treasures nonetheless.
Thank you for allowing me to share with you these past few weeks and for all your delightful and heartwarming comments. This is what makes blogging so much fun and rewarding.
Thank you. Please be sure to check out all the other participants over at Gypsy Fish Journal.
