Welcome to Silver Sunday # 3 hosted by Gypsy Fish. There are so many wonderful blogs that are participating in this fun party. You can check them out here. Today, I thought I would show you some of the silver that is most dear to me...my family heirlooms. I have been blessed to be the steward of this precious items and consider it my obligation to document each and every piece for my future generations. I hope you enjoy a little in site on these treasures of mine. Have a blessed Sunday and please visit all the other gals blog's that are participating...there's some amazing pictures out there!!
This was my Mom's trophy from 1941. She was crowned Personality Queen. That's a picture of her and my Father , next to the flag I was presented when my Dad passed. I cherish them dearly.
These four spoons are from my great grandmother's wedding silver. They are engrave D (Denny)
These three forks are from my 4th great Aunt's wedding. The are engraved with a D (Denton) and are dated Dec 16, 1872 on the back.
This is an old spooner that holds my grandmother's collection of spoons. On the left side with the purple ribbon is what is left of her wedding bouquet and then in the background is her wedding topper.
In this crystal bowl are my great grandmother's shoe clips and the old light bulb that was from the Methodist church where my Mom went to church as a child. When they were tearing down Pilgrim Hall at the church, my grandmother went and got this and an old floral basket.
This "vase" is made from a knife handle and a pounded out spoon is the base. Isn't it sweet? It is next to my grandmother pin watch. They sit on top of my fifth Gr Grandmother's Bible and her bookmark...probably one of my most prized possessions.
My least favorite piece of "silver" I own! One of those pieces that needs to be used in order for it to be appreciated! See you next Sunday...I'm off to do that dreaded machine....
