Silver Sunday ~ January 3rd

I decided to join the Gypsy Fish Journal's Silver Sunday by sharing photos of my little collection of silver goodies. You can also see Silver Sunday goodies at French Lique.

For several years when I lived in Michigan, there was a tray of silver items that sat in my hallway. When I moved, I packed them away, and I had not been enjoying them for some time. This year, I decided to get out my silver bits and put together a little group to use as a table decoration during the holidays.

I hope everyone has a relaxing & enjoyable Sunday, the first one of the year! We are snowed in up here in Maine, so it will be a snow day -- that is, a slow day -- of reading, watching The West Wing on DVD, and drinking hot cocoa.

[Pictured: belt buckle, creamer, tiny spoon, match safe, Art Deco cigarette case, lipstick holder with flip-up mirror, seafood fork, and the best treasure: an Art Nouveau chatelaine. Everything is antique or vintage, except maybe the creamer. I can't remember where that came from.]

Beautiful little silver pieces! You might just inspire me to put together a few pieces of my own that I have safely stashed away. If I can remember where they are... Glad you can stay home today with DVD's! Hugs, Silke

Tell me about the snow. I am also a Maine girl and I have decided to spend the day inside, still trying to clean my sewing room. But I am jealous .... I would love to watch the West Wing. I miss that show so much. Stay warm and shoveled out.

It's so good that you put your silver to good use - so pretty.

P.S. Hope you make out fine in the storm. I'm in MA and the news said that coastal Maine was in for a major blast. Keep safe.

I love the way you've arranged all your little silver treasures on your tray. All so unique!

Silver looks great whether it's polished or tarnished, large or small.

Have a great Wednesday!

Great collection! I'm glad you got them back out and are enjoying them!

Our weather is cold for us {here in Texas} but I'm sure it's not even close to what you are experiencing!


Such a beautiful collection of silver! Thanks for sharing. ~ Angela
