Happy Silver Sunday everyone!
Hopefully you are not buried under snow! Friday night we got about 10 more inches over here and the snow piles up very high at the curbsides. Besides there had been a nasty wind that had caused heavy snow drifts. Thankfully we were grocery shopping on Friday, so we could stay at home yesterday. Although it seems to be a lot of snow for us, I know that some of you live in areas that have even much more snow. I hope all of you will stay warm and won't have power outages!
Today I won't serve you food in my silver dishes but some of my favorite yummy goodies that have no calories and are free of cholestrol. I'm just thinking about your health here ... ;-).
These are things I like to collect and can hardly pass up on a flea market if the price is right.
You probably won't be surprised that I love laces. I don't know what it is about laces but they just make me happy and I use them a lot in all kinds of projects.
I have winded larger pieces onto clothes pins. Normally I keep those in a large glass as you can see in my blog banner but I also like how they look in the silver dish.
Pearls are another passion of mine. These are all faux but I don't mind.
May I introduce you to little Benjamin. I had received him as a present some years ago. He wanted to participate in Silver Sunday so badly. I told him that he would have to wear something silver and he agreed. Unfortunately no necklace fitted and he just didn't want to wear one of my silver rhinestone brooches. Who can blame him! Too much bling for a guy. Then I showed him a decanter label. He would have prefered a tag with his name but he finally let me put it around his neck. So let's just call him "Port" for today ;-). He is the button caretaker by the way.
The engraving on the label is very thin and not hard to see, not only on the picture but in real as well.
The nut dish has a sweet pattern and an engraved monogram.
I found a whole bunch of those metal numbered tags on the flea market last year.
Numbered plates and wooden spools are always a great find too.
What are YOUR favorite flea market finds?
