Silver Sunday Surprise

Today is Silver Sunday and I wanted to share a little silver sumpin'
I found at our Ozarks Craft Fair last weekend.
We've been going for the last 20 years or so,
and it's always such fun.

This darling little silver creamer
transformed itself into a sweet little lamp.

This is on my kitchen counter.
My English tray which depicts Buckingham Palace in the background,
and a few "cocky" friends.

And who doesn't love a stack of English Ironstone?

And the surprise?
Sweet Beth was having a Silver Sunday Give away
of which I was the lucky winner!
A $50 Anthropologie Gift Certificate,
a 1936 Pocket Diary,
AND one of her wonderful necklaces with the dolly and top hat.
(Thank you for saving me one!!) 

These pink ribbons and lace were almost too pretty to unwrap!

Thank You, Dear Beth, Love all the goodies!!

Hope you're having a wonderful Day.
Yard work awaits!

Sweet Blossoms for Silver Sunday

Our neighbors behind us just happen to have a huge crepe myrtle
that just happens to hang waaaay over our back fence.
Lucky me.
So now I can enjoy them too.

My silver water pitcher,
 a small silver tray that at one time held our mail,
and my silver wedding hand mirror...

white vintage Sunday gloves
and a crucifix and medal necklace
are all together to enjoy a summer Sunday.

The crepe myrtle's sweet scent fills the late summer air.

Delicate white buds and blossoms

Meet "My Double"

Let my introduce you to
"My Double"

Yes, she's quite the petite little thing.
Found her a few weeks ago at an antique mall.

I just wish she was "my double"!
I don't think I'll see this waist size anytime soon.
But I'm showing her off for 
Silver Sunday.

Look hard,
there's some "silver" in there.
Her hardware is "silvery"
so I hope that qualifies.

And here's a few of my key necklaces
 that I've been making for the shop in Ozark.

Old keys with just a little "bling".

My one year Blog Anniversary is this week
And if you haven't entered yet...

Silver Sunday, Tea Pot for Spring

On a gorgeous Spring Day like Today
I decided to have my tea in the Sunroom.

I've been playing with flowers today
and a little silver teapot decided to
 hang around.

Creeping Phlox is one of my favorite early Spring flowers.
Pink, purple, lavender, pale blue and white...
like tiny snowflakes amidst a fluff of green,
they dot the landscape, and have a sweet aroma.

An old cemetery metal flower basket won their favor.

Hope you have a beautiful Silver Sunday.
Say Hello to all the other participants,
then go enjoy your day!

Vintage Valentine Cards on Silver Sunday

I've been waiting for today for weeks...
Since Joan at Anything Goes Here
announced her Vintage Valentine Party!

I've sneaked in some Valentine photos
 this last week or so,
hope your not tired of all the "love",
 and some of the same photos.

As my kitties like to say;
Valentines, Schmalentines.

I'm also linking with Beth
from Gypsy Fish Journal today
to be a part of her monthly party,
Silver Sunday
(can't miss that!)

So I'm including some of my Vintage Valentines
on a large footed silver tray on my
Dining Room buffet,
where all things "holiday" seem to land.

This is a silver necklace that my sweet mom
 bought me for Valentines Day this year.
Love the initial and the crown on top.

And a silver bud vase with faux roses.

I found this intricate large Valentine
this summer in St. Louis.
It's supposed to be 3-D,
but I wanted to display it in an old
ornate frame I had been saving.

Here are a few of my vintage Valentine postcards.
The cutie boy here reminds me of my nephew Spence.
(tulips from my sweet sister)

My entry way dresser is holding
another smaller 3-D valentine.
And the pink Hull vase was
 a Valentine to myself this year.


And here is my sideboard again,
with another Valentine and
some altered children's Valentines
 that I have been playing with.

This framed simple Valentine is an
original from my paternal Grandfather
to my Grandmother, from the early 1920's.
He owned a print shop and this is another of his pieces.
to my Grandmother's Birthday Party.

Have a Sweet and Cozy Valentine Weekend,

Hugs and Love,

p.s. Thank you all for your sweet comments!
I seem to be having a "time management" issue with
preparing for the new booth opening.
Please just know I love you all and that
each and every comment
blesses me.
