Show and Tell

Pin It Now!

Today for Show and Tell I'm sharing my silver collection. I do have a few small sterling pieces but most of this is silver-plated. This picture above is just part of my collection!

The majority of these were found at thrift stores and flea markets and some my mom handed down to me.
I love silver platters and I use them for serving so many things!
they are even pretty for displays!
I think silver adds such an elegance to any room.

I ADORE silver.....sterling or plate, it doesn't matter to me which it is! I would love to find some more pieces to add to my collection, but it's getting harder to find. I get so excited when I find a great piece, I grab it like someone's going to take it away! LOL Thanks for sharing your silver collection, it makes me smile. :)

You have some beautiful silver pieces. I would have a lot more if I had the room and did not mind polishing all if it. :-D I joined in this week - Thanks so much for hosting again. Also, thanks for sharing your trip to Vintage and Vogue. I need to go back and take a good look. Have a great weekend.

Gorgeous!!! I am kicking myself for not buying a beautiful silver platter at the Goodwill a few weeks back. It was a heavy piece & was priced at only $3.99. I must have been out of my mind.
Thanks for hosting Show & Tell.

Hi Cindy. What do you use to polish your silver. I have tried several products and haven't had great results. Also, do you think Vintage and Vogue will ever set up a website. I would love to shop there.
Thanks

Gattina said...

Very pretty items ! With the age I am getting lazier and lazier so I have put all silver stuff away because it has to be clieaned all the time to stay shiny, lol !
The cuttlery I take out when we have guests, it darkens quiet quick because it's plein silver.
