Silver

So Friday I went to a place called T- La - Re. They buy stuff from yard sales and then sell it in their shop. Anyhow I went out Friday looking for Silver. This is what I found. First this "vase" is about 16". The 2nd item is the tray on the right. I think for 11$ I did pretty well. I still want to find a rectangular footed tray. The silver pitcher was a gift from my mom. The Coffee service was my grandmothers.

You have a really nice collection of silver. I love the water pitcher. Yes, I do like the thrift store prices for silver! It amazes me what people get rid of in the way of silver.

You had better luck than me at the thrift store. Your silver pieces are lovely! Happy SS!

What beautiful silver pieces!! I too love to collect silver. I especially love the old, tarnished pieces. They tell a story I think.

So glad your coffee went well. I have always wanted to do something like that and I do believe that you have inspired me. Since you stepped out of your comfort zone to do it, I just might have to do the same. Thanks for the push I needed!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for you kind comment. So glad you found me.

Have a happy Sunday and God Bless,
Kathleen

I am so glad you came by, your advice is so wise. I need to do what is easiest for me. Sometimes I find myself not posting just because I know it will be a pain in the neck.
I love your new silver finds. I have been on the hunt for silver lately too. It must be in the air. I have to say that the water picture is beautiful! All of it is. I think it is so special that you have the coffee server of your grandmothers. I have been enjoying reading your blog this afternoon. It is such a wonderful place.

I just love a good flea market, your pitcher and teapot are just beautiful, and I love their patina. Keep looking, that footed tray will show up!

Interesting shop! Yard sales are all very well, but can be very time consuming. I'd be happy to pay a bit more for someone to find the really good stuff and bring it all to one place!

The vase is beautiful and I can just imagine it with some roses inside. Thanks so much for dropping by Beach Vintage.
