SILVER SUNDAY

It's SILVER SUNDAY, hosted by GYPSY FISH
and it looks like the day has a SILVER LINING...
Go over and check out all the other silver in blogland.
This is the only time I can "play" since I don't have very much silver...
***
I have collected pretty silver spoons for a long time...and have given
most of them to a granddaughter that was interested in silver spoons...
I still have some more....some place....but ....where ?
**


BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER brought this lovely silver candlestick to me from one of her trips..
I just love it !
***

I also collect tiny silver trays...
I don't like tarnished silver...I use a lot of WRIGHT'S SILVER POLISH...
but these are all tarnished right now....:(
(actually, this Silver post time slipped up on me!!)
**
A little silver picture frame...I also have some more of these....they must be in the same place those other silver spoons are !!
***

BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER also brought this pretty silver tray to me...again, from a trip.
She is such a sweetheart and ....MY heart !
**
I love polishing my silver pieces.
Seeing them go from a dull and detail-hidden state to a beautiful, shiny masterpiece makes me smile...

HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY....

It's a beautiful array you have there and the tarnish doesn't detract from the beauty!

Happy New Year, BJ!

When the silver is tarnished, it's easier to take pictures. So you can just see that as an advantage :). The patterened spoon is beautiful and I too have a thing for silver trays. Happy belated birthday and many happy returns!

Chris said...

BJ, what lovely silver treasures! I have looked at pieces of old silver in shops and then put them down thinking about all that polishing...I wonder if I might actually enjoy it? I sure do love they way they bring a touch of soft light to a room!

Have a blessed Sunday, Chris

You think yours are tarnished? Go look at Gloria's! I think this stuff is beautiful. I especially love the trays and how you have them displayed.

What an incredible collection of silver spoons I love how the details pop on the handles....and please dont abandon us for lack of silver..it can be anything silver, glitter, chrome, grannies hair, the ever dropping mercury on the thermometer...there's tons of possiblities...have a glorious day!

What fun! A silver party!! I love all of your silver BJ...especially the spoons. I also love that they are tarnished :-). I love tarnished silver, unless it is my silverware that I eat with.
Hugs,

Diva Kreszl said...

what beautiful items! funny that while I appreciate their beauty all tarnished I too am always polishing my silver. Probably says something about my type A personality, lol!!!

Oh I love all of your pretty silver. I love them all polished too, and yet they do have a wonderful patina just a little tarnished. Your spoon and tray collection is just beautiful. Hugs, Marty

Oh, BJ... pretty, pretty!

I see one spoon that particularly makes my heart go flitter flutter, and I'm wondering if it's a sugar shell. It has great work on it. I love all of your pretties, and it's nice to have a granddaughter who shares that love with you.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi BJ, thanks for stopping by my blog. I think in order to "follow" a typepad blog I think you need to use the "suscribe to this blog's feed" feature on them. Happy New Year!

Those are all so pretty and I love the tarnished look. Actually, I think I like tarnished better than polished and shiny!

My silver items are all packed away because I don't like polishing it. Could you come over and help me, please.. please.. pretty please? Love all of yours and your daughter is mighty sweet to her Mama! Love to all dear BJ!

Such pretty things and silver reminds me of the new year for some reason! I prefer polished silver too, though I dont do it as often as I should!

BJ, I have very little silver and your post reminded me that it is time to polish what I do have.

God bless.

Beautiful pieces! What tarnish? ;-)
I'd love to start collecting spoons. I was eyeing one on eBay a few days ago, but alas, the price went out of my range. There's always next time. :-)
