ROSIE’S SILVER SUNDAY

I’ve been really busy getting ready for the next barn sale at Matildas, so I thought my assistant, Rosie, could give you a personal tour of what’s is happening in my area this month. It is our Valentines show and I am using a combination of SILVER, PINK and WHITE…so it’s a perfect venue, I think, to show for SILVER SUNDAY, hosted by Gypsy Fish. (you can see all the participants by clicking here)

What beautiful pictures, I too love the look of silver and ironstone....last year my son gave me a platter (ironstone) that was over 100 years old, it is amazing and one of my favorites! Your blog is a real delight, I had a great time visiting. Have a wonderful day.

Such lovely tour guides...the scoop is really one of my favorites as well, the roses are so pretty too, although I do love those wire baskets that I see everywhere in blog land, but sadly, not in my land!! Sending good vibes for you to do well at you show!! Happy Silver Sunday, xOxO Nerina
