Silver Sunday #2

For today, I would like to share:

a mercury glass vase I found in a junk shop for $2 - I just love how the silver is chippy.

I love tarnished silver - here is a footed dish that holds my vintage glass doorknobs.....

and this is a little dish that holds some vintage rhinestone napkinrings.

Love the doorknobs. I have used them as big eggs in some of my nests. :) Some antique shops want a lot of money for a great old doorknob..pooh on them! I have never seen napkin rings like those. Love em! I found two of the sweetest miniature silver trays with S&P shakers this past Sunday. I love old silver and always have. Have a super great week.
