Polishing the Silver


I only have a small collection of silver pieces, but they were looking a bit dingy so I took some time today to polish them....most of them find their home in our master bathroom.  I use the trays to store cosmetics, perfume bottles and the like... :) 

Below is a beautiful jar from Lady Primrose of Dallas.


This one holds the random cotton balls or Q-tips...







I found this silver pitcher at an antiques shop in Old Town Orange one day and knew it would make an awesome vase!


It's smiling!   :)

  3. Thanks! @blue-my parents have a home there and it is paradise for me! In our current location, we are about a 20 minute drive from the ocean so I can't complain too much. :)

  4. Setph, I'm a polisher too. I like the satisfaction one gets from polishing tarnished metal. I recently polished our copper vent hood and much of the copper pots in our kitchen.
    Your header is gorgeous. I'd love to be on that beach.

  6. Very timeless! We have one in our front door as well. I even was able to purchase two long skinny ones from somebody's old door for just $10 the other weekend! They changed um out. I was super excited because they are such great pieces!

  7. Hi, found you via Kim's blog. Your blog header was like a micro vacation for me. I could feel the ocean breeze.

    Love your silver. I like silver shiny or tarnished. I collect silver plated vintage baby cups and silver plated vintage trophies.

    I'm your newest follower. :)

  8. Steph, can we add silver to all the things we have in common? I adore it - and your pieces! (I like polishing it, too.) So glad we stumbled upon one another! xoxo abby

  9. More people would know peace if they polished - it is hypnotic, is it not?
