Piney Rose - Silver Sunday #4

My silvers for today are:

1. A silverplate tidbit tray

2. A pretty square silver box I found in a junk store. I love the textured design on it. I have no idea what it was used for.

Silver Sunday #3

Here is a little silver spoon brooch that I found several years ago -

I found this little cup in an antique store just this week - It was marked 50% off, and I got it for $2.50. I love the little trophy style handles.

....and some darling silver glitter hearts I purchased from Wren Cottage.

Hope you enjoyed a few of my silver things today.

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.

My art bottle is featured for Brag Monday, and some unique apothecary jars

I am so thrilled that one of my ocean-themed art bottles is featured on Brag Monday today at Graphics Fairy. I love using images from Karen's site. I just finished another one pictured here.

This weekend I also made these unique footed apothecaries by bonding jars to pieces of a vintage chandelier. One has already sold.
