SILVER SUNDAY


Happy Sunday! Today, I am joining The Gypsy Fish for her blog party SILVER SUNDAY. I love old silver (especially "dirty" unpolished) like so many of you...So this is a great party. I know I'm heading over to see all the wonderful silver everyone will be showing today.

Grab a cup of coffee and I hope you enjoy some of my silver!

A quadruple plated creamer in my bathroom


This silver dresser set was a wedding gift to my parents. The necklace draped out of the silver tropy was a Christmas gift from my daughter. I know it is a tiny picture, but it is of my Mom on her wedding day...so special!



Don't you just love this ink well! It came from a nun's estate in New York.




My great great great Aunt's wedding glove under a cloche that sits on a wonderful silver plateau.





Some antique spoons in an old whiteware vase














And this is my newest piece of silver! My grand daughter, Brooklyn who is now 3 months old. I am taking care of her 3 days a week and loving it! It is quite life changing, but oh the rewards!

Please go on over to Gypsy Fish for more Silver Sunday participants...have a great day!

Well, it's no contest, Brooklyn is by far the best silver you've got! But running a close second is that ink well, what an amazingly unique piece! You always have the most interesting stuff. :-)

beautiful silver... it's amazing how beautiful a bunch of old silver spoons sitting together in a container can be... our grandmothers would probably "roll their eyes"... ;)

I LOVE all the old silver. Funny, just recently I started getting into the old silver more. But what I really LOVE the most is the little grandbaby! She is so cute and she is at such a sweet age.
Take care, Sue
