I so look forward to Silver Sunday at Gypsy Fish and Mosaic Monday at Mary's. I must admit though, I am running out of silver to show. I was talking with a friend and we deduced that silver wasn't a very popular gift in the 70's for brides. But I have dug...and I do mean that literally through cupboards and hope chests and come up with a few things to show.
The first upper left picture is one of my most cherished items. (I KNOW - I say that alot. ) My mom, when I first was married took her first and only airline flight to Florida, back when they fed a real meal. She asked the stewardess (yes, still stewardess at that time) if she could have a set of the silverware. And they gave her a new set. I don't know what airline the symbol is of in the bottom left photo....but as you can see, they were REAL silverware - knife and all.
The above mosaic is of a little box I have on my nightstand. I grouped together a teacup and saucer, a lipstick case, a ring holder and a silver picture frame from our 25th Wedding anniversary 12 years ago!
This candy dish with yummy butter mints was a wedding gift from the president of the college where my husband and I met. It is not fancy by any means, but it is cherished.
This sweet baby spoon I found at a thrift shop last week. It was $4.00 and when I got it home and cleaned, discovered the L engraved in the handle. So now, I can say it is my husband's baby spoon!
This picture is from the first collage. These are my cereal spoons when I was a child. I believe my mom sent in box top labels to get them.
These butter and cheese knives were $1.00 for all at an Estate sale last year...I like that they don't match!!
This fork and knife is from my child's silverware set. It is Oneida and I don't have the spoon anymore, but I would love to find one!
Well, we will see what I dredge up for next week's show of silver. I do know that some of what I showed today is not real silverware in the technical sense, but, hey, go with me on this OK??
Don't forget to check out all the other Silver items today and the mosaics on Monday. Oh, and you friends out there that haven't said you are coming by...say hi ok?? I would love to hear from you!!!
We continue to pray for all those suffering in Haiti. How difficult their life is right now...we are very blessed.
