Silver Sunday... Thrifty Finds and Simple Pleasures...

My thrifty silver find (thank you Goodwill) is this pretty carafe... I just love the elegance of the pretty glass and silver combination...

She was in pretty good shape.. just a little tarnished and dirty...

but what beautiful bones..

and fabulous design...

So of course... I made her sparkling clean...

and shiny...

and put her for sale in my booth...
Then there are these... tarnished with age...
Baby cups... one with an embossed duck.. the other engraved with the initial "D"... for Dixie? Maybe Debbie or David... or even Dexter... So right now... I've decided to leave them as found... tarnished but loved...

and then there were this sweet pair... I'm also leaving tarnished for the time being... I think it brings out the detail... A Santa and A Christmas Tree... S&P... I'm already dreaming of Christmas Tablescapes 2010... aren't they just the sweetest pair?

I'm joining sweet Beth for Silver Sunday again this week... If you love silver and want to see more... visit Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal... the participants are on her sidebar... you'll love what you see...
we'll be missing you Silver Sundays... down here in French Lique...

It was a great piece to stumble onto and cleaned up beautifully. Goes very nicely on the counter top under the feather window.
I keep forgetting to mention (remembered this time) I love the chippy wood, etc. letters that spell out French Lique. Would like to know where you discovered those...and love the new background. So Valentiney and so you.
Missing our sunshine today but crafting inside and collecting ideas and items for the gazebo.
Sunday Blessings ;-)

You know how excited I get with a Goodwill Treasure find! Good for you. Tarnished but loved was the right choice.
