shiny shiny silver

i love silver !!
most of my items i sell are comprised of silver !!
and most of my displays are silver....
my designs are all made from
recycled goods
so naturally
my displays have to also
be made of recycled materials
i use paint cans and lamp shades !!
old lamp bases
and a rockin' lazy susan
silver typewriter keys
old dictionaries
old sheet music !

there is nothing like the shine of
the silver on my displays
on a beautiful day !!
ive always been a sucker for silver !

magazine additction

i also have a magazine addiction.

way too many mags and

no time to read them.

i tend to store them up and

then spend a whole day reading them !!


looks like it's time for one of those days !!

silver hoarder ???

hello,
my name is jeanne
and i may just be a hoarder

well
not really,
but i do stash a lot
of stuff
i dont know what it is,
but there are certain things
that i collect,
and when i see them,
i just cant pass them by
even if i have boxes full
at home,
i still have this need
to buy more
perhaps i am
a hoarder


i have been watching
the show (hoarders)
lately

and although my house does NOT look like those



my storage room
er....basement
might
i spent 4 days cleaning/sorting/purging
i discovered
that i have enough silverware
to make jewelry
for quite a while.




this is my entry for silver sunday
this week
others have shown beautiful
silverware
but being a 'junker'
this is what i do with mine.

(although i do think i can take it off my shopping list
....... for now)

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

silver bling

silver blades from long ago skates
