Throughout the year, I've been keeping an eye out in the thrift shops for pieces of silver. You'd be surprised how many beautiful servers and chafing dishes are discarded, mostly for want of a good cleaning.
These are just a few pieces I have collected this past year. All have been "bargain buys" for pennies on the dollar, with the exception of the candelabra, which was so generously given to me as a Christmas gift, by a very special lady.
My daughter keeps reminding me, if we continue, we'll have enough silver to set the table for her majesty "Lillibeth" over for tea.
It keeps the twinkle in my eye ;)
