Silver Sunday #5

This is either an issue of unorganization, or forgetfulness. Yes, AGAIN, I found more silver in my home. Even my friend of 35 years, Ro, said, "I didn't know you had so much silver". Neither did I!
It is so funny. I will think, oh, what about???? Then I get up and go digging. My husband says, what silver are you looking for now?


This is my son's baby cup. I never had it engraved. And I STILL want to do that! Those by the way, are my shoes from, well, let's just say they are olden!!

See this odd thing? It is real silver...but what do I do with it???

I serve petit fours when I have some girlfriend's over!

This is not real silver, but chrome again...I treasure this as it was my Grandma's. It is clearly Art Deco....

See the bakelite handle??

This Hershey Kiss is not real, chocolate that is. It is a weighted balloon holder. These were on the tables with balloons for our 25th Wedding Anniversary.


These are so wonderful.....


silverware holders for a buffet. I use these alot, since most holidays, I serve buffet style.

I just love Silver Sunday at Gypsy Fish. I so look forward to it each week and seeing everyone's silver. And the ladies that participate are so good about visiting...I love that!

Oh Ceekay, I just love all of the silver you are digging up. I guess I better polish up some of mine and join the party next week. I have one of those silver triple servers like yours that fold up. It is just wonderful. I have used mine for serving all kinds of things, even small sandwiches, carrots, celery and etc and for a centerpiece I have done 3 small bouquets and put them on the trays. It looks wonderful. Cheese and crackers works great too. I am glad you like the tassel. I hope to see you soon. Good luck on Monday. Hugs, Marty

Ceekay~~~

You have been holding back on this silver!! Oh, wow, I love everything. Your baby shoes are precious and the trio server, I remember my mom having something like that when I was younger. I have seen the silverware holders in antique shops and now I could kick myself for not picking up something that is useful for once in my life!! lol!!

Great stuff!!! :-)

I just LOVE those silverware buffet holders. I have never seen anything like those before. I have a sterling cup like that for one of my sons...it is engraved with his birthdate. And the baby shoes...darling. I love old silver pieces..not many people want to deal with the polishing of it!

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

Hi Ceekay, I am always amazed when someone has their own baby shoes or their grandmas creamer and sugar bowl. I wish I had some of those things, maybe that's why I collect other peoples treasures that have been thrown away! I loved your post, thanks for sharing! Theresa

LeeAnn said...

Beautiful silver!!!! I love your son's cup and the little shoes. Nice!

Barbara Jean said...

PS About that piece of silver on my post: you thought maybe a cigarette holder. maybe. seems tall to me though for that. (maybe cigarettes were taller then.) =0))
Great thought anyway and no one has offered a better suggestion. =))

That silver cup is a keepsake even if it's not engraved and love those precious little shoes. The faux Hershey Kiss is so fun. Your previous post on the mailing trunk is a true treasure. Have fun filling it with lots of wonderful things. Blessings, Tammy

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love the silverware holders. I do a lot of buffet style serving as well when I have a party or a lot of people over. This is much nicer than a cup filled with silverware!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh CeeKay sweetie...
I love these silverware holders. Without someone telling me I would not have known what they were. Thank you for sharing.

I so love your son's baby cup. This is priceless, absolutely priceless. The things we have when we start looking. Now get that engraved while you have it out, and are thinking about it.

I love your shoes. How precious are those? Moma never kept any of mine. I wish she had.

Have a beautiful week sweetie. I am working on a new craft this week. I will show it soon.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

CeeKay, I love it all but was most enthralled with the silver ware holders. Wonder where I can get some since I have big family get togethers and always serve buffet style. Some of those would make the plastic utensils more gentrified. :)

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Lovely silver choices. The set with the bakelite is so deco and cool. Those little shoes are just precious though.

Barb~Bella Vista said...

You do have a lot and it is all so beautiful! I have thought about doing a wall of silver trays in my dining room.

sissie said...

Hi Ceekay,
I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to some of the Silver Sunday posts. I love all your silver pretties you are showing us. The art deco set is really cool looking, I love the bakelite

Thanks for coming over to visit me too and for leaving such a nice comment.

Lots of lovely silver you have. Those old shoes of yours are very charming. Love your silver ware holders. I can imagine your buffets are very pretty, with your silvers out.
Blessings!

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay!! O, you do have wonderful pieces of silver. Look at your little precious shoes! Your art deco sugar and creamer is gorgeous and I'm also in love with those silverware holders! I don't think I have much silver, just silverplate silverware.
Oh, to answer your question, I found these little cloches at Ross, Marshalls and the little bitty one at Hobby Lobby. I hope that helps.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh my goodness Ceekay....you have some fabulous silver pieces.....Loved the Hershey Kiss balloon weights. I've never seen them before....
