Weekend Finds ~ Shabby Silver

Found these great shabby silver serving pieces this past weekend. Cute little servers. A gorgeous trivet.

I love it when I'm surprised with a monogram!!

Wonderful pickle forks, beautiful ornate sugar spoons....

Today they are so delightfully shabby....tomorrow they will be magnificently shiny!

Antique Show Finds

I love our little antique show here in town. It really is small, but always packed with great things. Here are a few of my finds.

Lucite powder compact hand painted with.......what else?? Pink roses and blue forget-me-nots!

And an aluminum powder compact by Tre-Jur with a raised floral design.

Funny how I always find things to add to my collection when I'm not actively collecting!

Accidental Collections....

I think I've started another collection by accident....
...Victorian Napkin Rings. I don't very often get a chance to pick these up, but when I can find them for a good price, I do. Now I have five. Not too many, but I can see more in my future! I love the individual personalities. And I love the monograms. Mine aren't in great condition but I treasure them nevertheless!

So what's your latest accidental collection? I'd love to hear about it!
