This pretty find was from the Salvation Army-for $1.99 I couldn't pass it up! It is a small silver plated bread tray, I have been using it as a centerpeice (before the dining table re-do) with some mother of pearl candle holders on it. The green reflection is from my sweater. Once the table is done I'll start staging things a bit better so I can take some more artistic shots. I still need to find a good silver cream to really get into the crevices but trust me, you wouldn't recognise it from when I first picked it up off the shelf! The large silver waiter tray that was $2.99 still needs alot of elbow grease before I can show that off-is it ever going to be gorgeous!
This soup tureen was also found at the same store-my favourite place to go when we head out of town! It is over an hour away so it isn't even a weekly trip, which is probably a good thing...The tureen is in perfect shape and it was only $5.99! It looks like there is some goop on it still, I didn't wipe it off before I took the pic's. Cole was helping me show it off-that is his little arm!
I'm going to add this find to Cindy's Show and Tell Friday over at: http://romantichome.blogspot.com/

Gypsy Fish Journal Silver Sunday!
And to end things: If it ever crosses your mind that standing on a 4 litre bucket of primer to get the lid back on is a good idea-trust me, it isn't...I had this fun experience just a few days ago and I am still peeling off the primer that ended up to my knees! Until next time! I'm all out of staples until we head out of town again on Thursday so I'll have to figure out something else to work on tonight-tomorrow is "the Bachelor" night so I'll be busy!
