Anyway these days,silverware is more popular tarnished, when it has that aged patina, it just looks gorgeous, especially when you see it in the garden, or a coffee pot used as a vase,transformed into more unusual things!
I have a fair amount of silverware collected over the years, tarnished of course, so rather than it sit on a shelf, in a cupboard or drawer, I put my creative hat on, and give it a new purpose...
This little card holder was a serviette holder, but my tags and cards fit in there so much better, Im thinking of having it engraved,'Junk-it Junction'.
This gorgeous little keeper, I think is suppose to hold sugar cubes, but I found it useful for corkboard pins!
Silver plated trays with all there ornate scrolls and engravings,are always a lovely
way to serve up afternoon tea, but also make a great display on your wall, the finished product coming soon!!
I just love these , they are so cute, with their little feet! Im thinking, cotton balls, and buds....Ive undercoated them, and will show you the finished product soon!
So check out my next blog, and I'll show you the 'Silverware makeover'!
