I am joining Beth over at  Gypsy Fish for Silver Sunday
Pleases stop by and check out all the wonderful posts!
So much Silver and only one more Sunday!  But guess what??

Beth is going to continue to host this party as a monthly event!
Check out her blog for more details.  Thanks Beth!  It's been too much fun to stop!

Just two weeks until Valentine's here is a wonderful heart I found at the GW today.

Charlie must think it is for him, but where is the food Mama????

I thought this pretty glass dish with the silver rim looks elegant

I will be using this on my Valentine's table (not for cat food...sorry Charlie!)

This silverplate dish with a top was a gift from my Grandmother.  She didn't have a lot of money but wanted to give me something that would last and I could pass down to my daughter.  

The inside has less tarnish on it, guess I should get out my wright's silver polish

This piece means a lot to me.  I lost my grandmother many years ago but a part of her is always with me. This will be passed on to one of my daughters. 

When packing to move last summer, we came across this bag with silverware wrapped in linen napkins.  My HH has no idea where it came from  There are enough pieces for 6 place settings.

The silver is marked Sterling ~ Reed & Barton and the pattern is Tara

I think it is lovely and I'm happy to have this set of silverware

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the other lovely Silver Sunday posts

Wow...what a find, sterling silver flatware that you didn't know you had. It is beautiful.
The dish from your grandmother is very special. One of your daughters will be very lucky to get this family piece.

How sweet is that heart dish, and the piece your Grandmother gave to you is a wonderful piece to pass down your daughter will charish it.

What a pretty heart dish. Charlie is pretty cute himself. :-) I don't have a lot of silver, but have a feeling it all needs polishing. Thanks for sharing.

Well I have to tell you the only silver I have is from my mom - 2 silver serving dishes - that I need to polish too.

It is nice to remember the person who left it to us isn't it?

Question what/where is GW and HH? I'm still learning.

Hey Linda,
The silver is beautiful, and Charlie is cute as can be...give him a hug for me okay?!
Big Hugs to you too,:)
P.S. Your bird collection is very pretty. Those aqua ones are especially precious and for 50 cents, what a deal!

I really like that dish your Grangmother gave you. Very special. I like your silverware also. I am planning on hunting for silverware this spring when garage sales are going again.

I just love finding beautiful surprises! We found a silver urn yesterday which I can't wait to polish up. My husband said, "What would we use this for?". I said, "Use? It's pretty!" and gave him a "look". Some men just don't get it!


A lovely silver set you have. I have a silver ware set.. that has been passed down to me. I love it, but I don't love polishing it.
