Silver Sunday #2

Today is Silver Sunday at The Gypsy Fish. I also am doing my Mosaic Monday at Mary's. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

The silverware was my Grandma's. Unfortunately, it is not a complete set. It probably was a gift for an anniversary at some time. I really enjoy having it though...it must be at least 50 plus years old.



My next mosaic is of some silver Mercury glass candle holders I purchased for 75% off at Target after Christmas this year. I was tickled! I love the bling on them...they match so well with the bling napkin rings I got last after Christmas sale...Target again.



I told my husband....time to go shopping. I really don't have a lot of Silver. I just love looking at all the beautiful pieces everyone is showing. Some of those serving pieces with all the cut out work is scrumptious!!

Hi CeeKay sweetie...
I wanted to pop over and tell you hi. Thanks for sharing your beautiful silver. It is priceless because it belonged to your Grandmother.

I love the bargains you found at Targets sweetie. I love that store. They have the best sales.

Still not feeling good today. Not talking at all, as it hurts when I do. Did sleep last night, the medicine knocked me out. I haven't left the house all day. Blogged for awhile and just layed around today. No sewing.

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. It was so lovely of you to check on me yesterday. I so appreciated that.

Country hugs and so much love sweetie...Sherry

How special to have your grandmother's silverware. I think the old silver has a warmth that can't be duplicated. You mercury glass candlesticks are beautiful. I've become a recent fan of mercury glass. Never paid much attention to it before. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to see what you have for next Sunday. ~ Sarah

Wow - good score at Target! Right place at the right time for sure. The Silver Sunday posts are really showing me how much I love silver.

P.S. You mentioned in my blog that you would like to find a brush. I will list one of the sterling brushes in my Etsy shop. Don't feel an obligation though. I don't need two.

Hi Ceekay. Oh, gosh. All of your pieces are just gorgeous. I'm a fan of bling. Bring it on! And aren't you a smart shopper? When I go to after Christmas sales, all the good stuff is gone. I guess I gotta get up a little earlier! Rosie
