Silver Sunday 1/09/11


It's Silver Sunday again, hooking up with Gypsy Fish Studio to show off the silver in our lives.

I obviously have a love for worn, tarnished, aged, patina'd, grungey, scratched types of metals. I find them at the flea markets and don't pay too much for them. As a grouping, they are quite beautiful.

----------------------------------------------

just love these shakers. they rest inside an old doll armoire that sits on top of a book shelf in my bedroom.

old metal jewelry boxes. the two on the left are my favorites!





--------------------------------------------------


an old Parmesan cheese shaker perhaps? i'm not sure, but i put German Glitter glass in it!




-----------------------------------------------------------



Old jello/pudding /candy/tart tins




-----------------------------------------------------------------



found this while antiquing with my friend, Leslie. Such a great find! (another favorite, got lots of those!)




------------------------------------------------------------------------

old candy molds (love the bunnies!)




-----------------------------------------------------------------

and an old metal tray, scored for $5 at the flea market. I tried to do some research on the inscription on the tray (1st Lighting R.Y.C. '54), but wasn't able to come up with any results. It's quite beautiful though and has amazing engraving designs on it.
