~~~~Hi 'O Silver~~~~

Yet another one of my "loves" is old silver...doesn't have to be sterling (and most of it isn't), but all of it is divine. The ornate designs on the handles and the intricate fret work makes the tarnished patina look even more beautiful. As you can tell, I don't polish my silver (and sometimes don't dust it...(don't pictures show it ALL~) as I love the tarnished look....I love the blackish grey and uneven finish that happens over time It's not to say I haven't polished my tea set when the girls came over, but we usually drink wine, not tea....so that doesn't happen that much. The old pitchers look beautiful holding flowers or snippets of old lace.....and just have so much soul. Most pieces can be picked up very inexpensively, but displayed together, make quite a statement....which in my eyes says "Beautiful".

Thank you for stopping by.....if this is your first time, then welcome.....if you come often.....welcome back....


And then there's more.....
