Silver Sunday ~

Use your little mouse to scurry over to Beth's Gypsy Fish Journal. She is hosting
Silver Sunday blog party January 3 ~ February 7 2010.  On her right sidebar is the list
of people showing off their silver; tarnished, shiny, vintage, polished, flea market find, holiday silver,  Dollar Tree finds, & estate sale bargains. Here are a few of my humble
pieces, whether they be silver plate, sterling silver, or just painted silver over metal.
Some flea market finds, a couple garage sale bargains, an Ebay win,  and one purchase from
a fellow blogger. Even Brighton has silver. The photos speak for themselves. All images were taken in our backyard on an old barnboard garden bench. Enjoy!
(Click on the photos to get a better look).

My girl and boy, who are now 36 and 33. I didn't know I had kids that old... eeekkkk ;-)

See the wee children's button hook?

The lid on the Lady Primrose jar never needs polishing! Yay!

Vintage button hooks, the children's button hooks are just 3".

I didn't take the stickers off. :-)

A Mother's Day gift.

The faux silver trays were purchased @ the Dollar Tree just a couple days before Christmas.
I have a plan for these, stay tuned!

And lastly, a couple of sparkly silvery Christmas vignette's.
Hope you enjoyed my little show of Silver Sunday. Stop by next Sunday
for more Silver Sunday goodies.
Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  43. Linda, thank you for missing me. Your comments were so sweet and encouraging. I have just gotten home from visiting my son in Iowa. I had a beautiful Christmas with 6 inches of gorgeous white snow...the perfect Christmas scene. The cold air followed me to GA and now we are to get three inches of snow on Thursday! I keep thinking "it is just one more day closer to spring"! Now I have the awesome task of visiting all of my blogger friends and need to catch up on all. I put you first on the list.
    I love the silver button hooks and all of your beautiful silver pieces.
    Happy New Year, sweet one, may you be blessed with lots of laughter and friends surrounding you.

  44. I loved all your silver!!!!!!!! Hard to choose a favorite but, those 3" childrens button hooks are amazing. I have to go back & re-look at it all. Thanks for sharing. Charlene
