When Beth @ Gypsy Fish first posted about hosting a Silver Sunday party I immediately jumped on the party train. I love tarnished silver pieces and I have posted about several of my silver finds and projects over the past few months. I know a lot of you have seen these pictures before and know how I love to create with old silver, thrift store finds.
I created snowmen from silver plated salt and pepper shakers:
A large snowman from silver plated bowls (tutorial here):
Pincushions from silver plated cream and sugar bowls:
Silver compote from silver plated tray and candlestick (tutorial here):
And various display areas around my house:
Well I know you guys know I love my old silver pieces but imagine my surprise when I opened up some of my Christmas gifts from my teenage son. He obviously has taken note of my silver passion and took it upon himself to go shopping at a local vintage market where he found these three great pieces. These were without a doubt the best Christmas gifts I received because he took the time to hunt down something that he knew I loved!
These are going to be proudly displayed with my other silver finds.
Please head over to Gypsy Fish and discover the other great silver pieces that are being shared today.
I'm Jane and I'm a junker. In my spare time you will find me shopping for treasures at local flea markets, thrift stores and antique malls or repurposing said treasures into new pieces that I use in my home or give as gifts to family and friends. Somehow the shopping part has overtaken the creating part but I typically have on hand what I need when inspiration hits. I enjoy sharing my projects on my blog and appreciate you stopping by for a visit.
