Silver Sunday #6

I am a little sad here. Our first round of Silver Sunday is drawing to a close. Probably a good thing in a way...as I am out of silver polish and will have to get more before our next meeting. I want to thank Beth at Gypsy Fish for such a fun meme. And the funnest thing I believe for me is that so many of the ladies visited and left comments. We all found out just how much we love that shiney...or maybe tarnished silver!!


My hubby bought this for me last fall at CB. The handle and the knife are silver. Too cute to use I say...so I leave it in the plate stand on the counter!



These are my sweet Valentine envelopes that Sherry and I made on our craft day...they look so pretty in my big Silver tray. This is another wedding gift....that was stashed away!








I use this little sugar and creamer all the time. It is from Pottery Barn and I just thought it was so cute a few Christmas' ago, that I treated myself! I love how it stacks.



I KNOW I saw so many of these cake servers on the blogs...and I knew I had one and ta da...I finally found it! But it doesn't say Merry Christmas.



I got these 2 sweet spoons at an estate sale for 50 cents each. I was hoping that one would work in that Mustard jar...but nope, too big!


This was the BEST find of the estate sale. This precious baby spoon and fork. Candy found it and I was so excited because it is either the pattern or very close to the pattern of my Grandma's everyday silverware. These are treasures!


Honestly, I do have a few more things that I could show, but I will save them for our next party! Until then...happy Silver Hunting!!

Again you were able to pull out some silver pieces after thinking you didn't have much to share!! You could fill up an entire china cabinet!! I really love everything, Ceekay. The sugar and creamer from Pottery Barn is so neat how it stacks...great for a buffet. And the baby spoon and fork tugged at my heart!!

Wonderful pieces, my lady friend! :-)

Hi CeeKay Sweetie...
Oh my goodness everything looks so beautiful. You have tons of silver. It is everywhere I looked. I love this little baby spoon and fork, they were just the best.

Your tray you got for your wedding is so beautiful, and our love letters look so pretty on them. I have mine laying on the hall table inside the front door. I love looking at them, and smile and think of the fun we had that day.

We will have to do another one soon. I so enjoyed myself. I will give you a call this week and maybe the end of this month or the first of March we will do another.

I pray you are feeling okay sweetie. I think of you and pray for you each day. I pray for good health and happiness. God Bless you my sweet friend.

Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

Kathy said...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

did you hear??? Silver Sunday's will continue. :) yeah! So you are teasing me with your 70 degree weather...huh? :) I don't mind the snow at all. It is so beautiful with so much of it clinging to the evergreens. (just don't want to lose power...heaven forbid). Love all your silver. Those last pieces look just like my silver pattern. xo

THE STONE RABBIT said...

Whoa Girl! You just bowled me over with this stash of silver! I don't think I have much either, but I'll bet I would be just as surprised as you were if I started searching for silver in my house! I LOVE the baby spoon and fork...such a sweet pattern. The PB creamer and sugar is so sweet, too, and PRACTICAL!

How I love the envelops you and Sherry made! It's so super that you two can get together for "craft day". Wish I didn't live so far away, cuz I'd just have to crash your craft party! :)

Hope all is well with you, Ceekay! L, Dana

Hi Ceekay! Love all of your silver pieces, especially the first apple shaped piece! I've run out of silver for this week, but still wanted to see what was posted. :)

Love your "Blog Book" below! That is such a neat idea! I've wondered if there was anyway to run it off and preserve it "hard copy."

Praying for you this week as you go through your CT Scan! Big hugs sent your way! ~Rhonda :)

How cute is that bread board, and I love your big tray.
My heart went pitter patter on the last one though..I have some that were my mom's..
Can you stop in and tell me the pattern? And also I am asking everyone to vote on their favorite silver polish..I am going to tally it up!

The Lazy Peacock said...

beautiful pieces! love the cake server and the baby fork & spoon. i also really love those valentine envelopes - i hope you do a post on how you made them!!!

Vintage Christine said...

Don't you just love everything silver? I prefer it polished but when you start collecting and amassing, tarnished doesn't sound so bad. I LOVE that cake server!

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

Ceekay~ Your envelopes are sweet, and so are the baby silverware. Happy Sunday! Theresa

Oh, it was fun. I ran out of silver things, but will try to get more before she does another one. I do have a silver cake server though, I forgot about that. I use it all the time. It's been nice to meet so many wonderful ladies through this too.
Blessings,
Marcia

I love your little creamer and sugar set.
I didn't know you made valentine envelopes. How did you make them?
All your silver is so pretty.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Ceekay, Every time you say you've found some more silver pieces, you come up with some great stuff! I don't think I'd want to use that pretty cutting board either. Those little envelopes y'all made are so sweet. Love your pretty children's fork and spoon. Have a great week. laurie

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

HI Ceekay~ I thought you didn't have much silver??? Honey, No wonder you ran out of polish. Just gorgeous~ especially the baby utensil set. Love it. Estate sales are such a great spot to find extra silverware~I am always adding to my very unpolished stash. Have a great week~Dee

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay! Oh, I have so loved seeing your pretty silver and man, you've got a lot of it! Love the little wood board and little knife! Your tray is gorgeous! I guess it would be neat for you to put it all out and let us see all your silvers together! :)
Be a sweetie,
