Silver Sunday, Tea Anyone...?

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, anyone for tea?

I love old silver,
but much of it is out of my price range.
So what I have, are bits and pieces
 I've collected from my flea market adventures.

This set was black with tarnish when I found it,

but I knew something wonderful was hidden underneath.

This is my wedding china, really French faience;
heavier and hand painted.
No two pieces are exactly alike.

Pewter tea tin...

With my favorite Scottish biscuits,
 "McVitties Digestibles".
They taste a little like graham crackers,
but more dense.

my "new" silver spoons,
and "old" butter knives.

Oh and let's not forget the Crabtree & Evelyn.

The tray isn't very heavy and it's a completely
 different style from the Georgian tea set,
but I love the ornate design, vintage by Wallace.

A lot of people like their silver tarnished.
And I have certain pieces that I do,
but silver is such a gorgeous metal
I like to keep mine shined.


Hope you have a delicious day!
