They just sparkle now!
You might be wondering why I would need four silver plates. Well, what do you do when you need to take a dessert or appetizer to a party and you don’t want to lose your good platter, or you know you’ll need to leave it there? If you’re like me, you run to the party store and buy something lame, plastic, and cheap. Oh, $1.99 seems like a good price for a plastic platter. So there you have it. Instead of paying $1.99 and showing up with your lame plastic, you’ll show up with beautiful silver!
I do use silver around the house in my decor. This was a platter that my hubby and I received for our wedding. It has a few scratches, but I still love it. It sits a little table in the kitchen.
This tiny bowl was a .99 Goodwill find. It holds antique spools of thread in the living room.
This bowl was only .79, at Goodwill, because it had personalized engraving. No one knows, once you put a few old pocket watches inside.
I didn’t purposefully set out to collect cookie cutters, but I have a huge collection. I don’t display many plastic cookie cutters because, well, they are really ugly. I have several vintage cookie cutters. Wow, I just called the cookie cutters from my childhood VINTAGE.
He has a story and he’ll always be my favorite.
