Silver Sunday Blog Event

Beth over at Gypsy Fish thought it would be fun to do a Show Off Your Silver Blog Party for the New Year. She planned it to be every Sunday from TODAY to February 7th. I decided this would be something fun & different so for a start to the party I thought I would share my vintage Tipping Tea Pot.
Here is where she lives. On our antique hutch. Up there with photos of my sweet Daddy & Grandmother. Up on the shelf the tea pot reigns over the photo of Daddy in his uniform (Korean War era) & the photo behind that is him when he was a little child. Next to that is a sweet pair of vintage child's shoes with Mother of Pearl buttons. I just love baby shoe & I will share some of the others I have in another post. The items to the left are a teaser for you to come back next Sunday...
Here is this beauty up close. I did polish her for my Christmas Tea (December 20) but, the tarnish is already sneaking in. DARN!
And here in the left side of the photo is the tipping tea pot all polished up & put to use on my tea cart in the dinning room for the Christmas Tea I told you about. For more photos of that event click HERE otherwise click on the button on the sidebar to go visit Beth & the other girls playing today. Have a blessed Sunday!
