Silver Sunday, I wish these were mine...

I really love these little silver clocks
made of teapots and other silver "accoutrements"

 Sorry to say they aren't mine,
 but folks,
 my exciting silver items are running thin,
so here are a couple of images of my silver "wants".

(Romantic Homes)

Oh yes, and this gorgeous silver trophy cup.

(Country Living)


Oh, excuse me, now back to reality.

I hadn't really been "into" silver
before our 25th "Silver Wedding Anniversary".
Our children bought this silver tea set
 for us to celebrate appropriately.

Here are some flea market finds of silver bud vases
and one of my many random silver teapots.

This antique silver-plate monogrammed ladies inkwell set
was given to me by my brother,
for my Birthday about 7 years ago.

I love the detail of the roses.

silver flea market candle holders.

Now, please disregard any and all dust that may have
inadvertently been shown in the taking of these photos,
and do not check back to see me
 in my pink thermal pajamas.

Run on over to Gypsy Fish Journal
to see the rest of the fabuloso silver goodies!

Have a great Silver Sunday!

Once again....I feel as though I should polish my silver! I'm getting ready to do a combo silver/rug hooking piece. We'll see how well the two mix!

Sounds like a lot of us have been spending the weekend in our jammies. I personally attribute it to the snow and ice here. We were hit fairly hard. Hope you don't get as much as we did! Love all of your silver goodies and I, too, could have any of those silver clocks, and I LOVE the silver trophy!

All such lovely silver pieces. When I see what others post, I'm like, hey, I have something like that. Of course, I have the eclectic and unusual stuff too. But when you really look around, it's like, where did all this silver come from? :) Have a wonderful day. Tammy (PS all my silvers have dust too. :)
