just as crazy as ever over the lovely patina and aged tarnish of old silver pieces. my friend diane and I are on a hunt right now for worn silver plates and platters to hang just like in this post.

I wonder which one of us will collect enough first.

happy hunting for your treasures this weekend! donna

Donna, Once again you’ve inspired me. I will be looking through my cabinets this weekend for old treasures that should be displayed!
Have a great weekend.

Just love that first image. Does it count if my silver just looks old because it needs cleaning? Happy weekend! and happy hunting. XO

Funny I used that same first picture on a post I put up the other day isn't it gorgeous? I used to collect coin silver because of the patina, try it you'll love it!

Enjoy your weekend!

I have 15 hours of parent interviews this weekend. I'll be hunting for a good sized glass of red wine instead (although I do love the silver!). Happy weekend, j

I have an extreme crush on old silver right now. Our shop is filled with it. I love that tarnish is in. I never have enjoyed polishing silver. XO, Mona
