In lieu of sparkly decorations, I'm pulling out all my silver to give some shine to the season. It helps that I only just now unboxed it all! Everything I have came from yard sales and thrift stores. Unlike most Christmas decor, secondhand silver is often a great investment, and one that can be used year round.
That looks really nice!
Looks really nice - love the pomander balls :)
I read your blog shortly before heading out for a doctor's appointment and a decadent day of thrifting. And I found silver-plated coasters. 15 of them. ($7.50). Also a silver-plated candle holder ($2.50).
Sadly, nothing sterling, but we'll have them add sparkle and shine.
Do you have any tips on how to recognize what is decent quality and what is not? I think my very limited knowledge of silver comes from reading old cookbooks from an era when plated was so cheap as to be scorned....
