Silver Sunday #4 and Mosaic Monday

Today is Silver Sunday at The Gypsy Fish! I laughed at myself because I keep saying I don't have much silver, but I keep finding stuff!

The above collage is of my sugar tongs. The little nugget of Silver was purchased in Tombstone AZ... btw, so many of you have asked about the doilies I have been showing. These were a Christmas gift from my sweet friend Misty. She crochet me a three piece set, one brown, one taupe, and one black. She knows me very well!

The little spoons are my salt spoons. I pick these up when and IF I see them. I have many salts but as you can see, only a few spoons. They are so precious though. The fan spoon is a sugar spoon I picked up at an estate sale. I just love the fancy spoon part...and what better than a Cherry Kiss!

The silver goblets on the left of the collage were from our 25th Wedding anniversary. They are engraved with our names and our wedding and anniversary date! The gadget on the right is a cake server. Every once in a while you can find these silver serving pieces at Ross, for not too much money.

This little silver angel lives in my curio cabinet. It was a gift from a co-worker so I would know that he is praying for me. I know this comes as a shock to many, but I am really not an angel person, but this one is special.

This is an odd little set. It is not silver but chrome. I bought it at an antique store in Michigan...but I have a question. I know it is a condiment set. Salt, pepper, and mustard. Why mustard?? I need to find a spoon for it though.

This is another non-real silver item, but it was a letter opener my husband and I gave to my grandpa for his birthday one year. When he passed, we received it back....but see, we had it engraved....

Makes me get a little teary eyed...

Well, I am off to see all the other wonderful silver things and the fantastic and talented ladies doing mosaics on Monday for Mary's Mosaic Monday. Thank you to all who left comments last week. That was soooo fun to hear from many of you!

Who knows what silver I will will find for next week. Man, I still wish this was diamonds...!!!!

Ceekay, you have some very pretty silver items. I love the story about your grandpa's letter opener too. I'm not sure about the mustard dish as part of the set, but I like it :-)

Isn't it comical just how much silver we all have? It's like, oh, blue glass. It's just stuffed into all the cupboards!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Ceekay, you really do keep finding all kinds of silver. Your spoons are just wonderful and I really love the cake server too. The condiment set is lovely and I am with you, why mustard. That's strange. Hope you are doing well. Hugs, Marty

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Isn't it amazing that once we start looking around at all we can find? Love the doilies!

Mimi said...

Ceekay, for someone that says they don't have very much silver, you sure are showing lots! I am in love with the teeny tiny salt cellar spoons...they are adorable. Thanks for sharing your collection.

Gracie Jewellery said...

Love your silver. I have one of those salt, pepper, mustard dishes too, and I always wondered why mustard. I so enjoyed my visit with you last week, I featured you in my post this week. Have a Happy Sunday.

Hello Ceekay and thank you for stopping by today ;) Not much silver? I love you silver salt spoon collection and the tongs and the letter opener (sweet thoughts to you).

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Sweet Ceekay...

Oh my goodness..........your silver is delish.......I can't join in....I have VERY little silver.....surely not even enough for a post!

I have never seen the little silver salt spoons. How cute.

Come over!.....I'm having a little giveaway.... ;-)

Hugs,
Spencer

junkdreams said...

Hi Ceekay,
Such pretty silvers you found around the house! I especially love "grandpa's" letter opener. The doillies are very pretty in the different colours@
Happy SS!.

I don't think you can claim you don't have any silver. You have some wonderful pieces to share. I've so enjoyed my visits each week.
Thanks for stopping by to visit HFTS. ~ Sarah

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi CeeKay sweetie...
My goodness you have lots of silver you have shared tonight. I so love the little spoons. I have never seen any like this, they are just adorable.

That letter opener is just precious, and then you had your Grandpa's name engraved on it. I am so glad that you got it back. It needs a special box or something to display it in. It is so special.

Now that angel is beautiful. I cannot believe you are not an angel person. But my goodness you have so many collections, we are really what people make us by the gifts that we receive, so maybe you will start getting more angels as gifts? You never know.

I love all of your silvers, and the stories that go with them. That is what makes them so special.

Thank you for sharing CeeKay. I so love it when you do.

Country hugs to you Sweetie.
Much, much love, Sherry

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

You have such pretty silver things. I have a few, I need to join next week. I never mind polishing my silver. It makes me feel rich to have silver, even though it's only silverplate. lol

Kathy said...

You DO have silver, girl! I love it all, especially the spoons. And I AM an angel person, so you know I love the pretty silver angel!
xoxo...Kathy

Maryjane - The Beehive Cottage said...

What a beautiful silver collection Ceekay! The letter opener is extra special...

Hugs,
Maryjane

Rettabug said...

"Pretties!" That's what Caroline calls sparkley items. I ♥ your "pretties"!

I would probably put jam in the little jar at the breakfast table instead of mustard. OR, since my DH likes salsa on his eggs in the morning, I'd fill it with that.

You could do Hollandaise sauce, too or horseradish sauce if you were serving prime rib for a dinner party. LOTS of ideas come to me. Wish I could find something similar....I'd use it for every dinner party!

I've been polishing up my silver set to photograph it but it has been so dull & dreary here in Ohio, the photos are yuck. I'm waiting for a sunny day!

Julie@beingRUBY said...

thestonerabbit said...

Good Sunday Morning, Ceekay! YOU really do have lots of silvery items! I so enjoyed seeing them and reading your descriptions. I have a fondness for the salt spoons, too. I used to have one that my dad had made into a pin, but sadly it's MIA. (He attended a jewelers and watchmakers school when I was a tot.) The letter opener you gave your Grandpa was so sweet...glad you guys have it now. The little condiment set is interesting, too. Someone probably mentioned this already, but I was wondering if you could use the little jar for sugar?
Hope you're having a great weekend. I didn't realize you and Sherry were buddies!! How great for you gals. Did you meet through blogging?
L, Dana

Sherrie said...

I too showed something from my 25th anniversary, a silver and glass plate. I love your goblets. Thanks for sharing.

Debra @ Common Ground said...

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Ceekay... loved seeing this. Your salts are absolutely adorable, and I love sugar tongs. I have some with little bird feet. Perfect for a magpie, don't you think? ;-)

And the letter opener that says Grandpa is precious... makes me miss mine so much.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Sharlotte said...

Hi Ceekay,
You have really great pieces! I love the spoons too, they are so intricately carved. And the letter opener... made me teary eyed too, that is just so special. I don't really know about the mustard...sorry, can't help you out on that one. As always, I enjoyed your post. Thanks for sharing!

The Lazy Peacock said...

Lovely, lovely silver. Your condiments are you sure it is mustard? not honey or jam? now you have me wondering? If you find out let me know.

TFS, Happy Silver Sunday! Thanks for stopping by.

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay! Oh, my you have lots of pretty silver! I love those little salt cellar spoons too! I went to try and find some and I found some but they were too expensive! Waaa! So I just ordered some regular ones. Yours are gorgeous!
Oh, Mr. Precious told me yesterday I had enough dishes! HUMMMM...not that he's retired I'm going to have to work think this out!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cute little condiment set! It would be really pretty on a breakfast table with apple butter instead of mustard...You have a wonderful collection of silver!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

HI Ceekay! Beautiful silver pieces. Love them. It's funny once you start looking you find silver pieces everywhere! I'm on a silver kick and I can't believe some of the wonderful pieces I have found at THRIFT STORES!!!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Ceekay, your silver spoons are all so pretty. My mother had a similar s/p & "something" set (I guess I have it now..but I'm not sure where). We sometimes had jam in the extra little jar when she used it for breakfast. What beautiful reminders some of your silver pieces are - the letter opener of your granddad, and the angel of your frien who is praying for you. laurie

How do you know the container with the salt & pepper should be mustard?

Great combo -- smart thinking!

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Hi Ceekay! What beautiful pieces! I especially love the condiment set! I want one, too! About the mustard...I went to school one semester in Dijon...where they make the mustard..and mustard was on every table and people put mustard on EVERYTHING! lol Happy week!...Debbie

Cozy Little House said...

You have such pretty things! I don't have much of anything silver for some odd reason. I wanted you to know I've switched my blogroll so the post last posted comes first. Saw you wrote that in my comments and I thought: Hey, what a great idea! Why didn't I think of doing that?
Brenda

Shelia said...

Ceekay, I did buy that doily, but for the life of me I can't remember where. I've had it for some time. I usually spray starch it so it's a little stiff, but after I washed it this time it was so soft, I just left it that way. Hope you can find one.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Nana said...
