silver sunday

i have joined the silver sunday
blog party


for this week,
i opted out of the glittery items
and
decided to just go around my house
and snap pics of some
of the diverse shades of silver
in my many crazy collections
i collect old toys
plenty of old keys.......

isnt this cool...its an old
match case
this is a charge card
from
waaaaayyy
back
how many of you remember these???
i also love old office supplies

and old silver hardware on luggage
gets me everytime

this piece, i found in my grandfather's house
too cool
it's actually a bottle opener
for those who dont know


silver hardware again
(on an old corset)
add just the right touch

my pap's watch

one of a set of coasters
arent they awesome !

silver bling
always works



silver blades from long ago skates
silver ski poles

and little silver touches just make anything old ...well...better !


i collect old oil cans...but only really small ones

and i LOVE flower frogs


so..this is my stash of silver
hop on over to gypsy fish
and check out the list of other participants to see more

Now this is MY type of silver. I do love the tarnished type too, but I love your originality for this week. Great post and I love the items from your grandfather's house.

Super silver post! I also ventured over to your previous posts with the beautiful snow photos, pretty to see, but probably not so fun to be in! ~ Angela

I like the originality of your post. And you have a great collection. If I were in a store all saw all this, the visa would be smokin'!

I would buy every single piece you posted! I really like odd little things like the bottle opener and match box case to just lay around on our shelves. Thanks for helping with the trial run with Mr. Linky!
