I know that you- like me- have all rounded a corner, wherever you are exploring, and honed in on a box of something that seemed too good to be true.
It is the unexpected perfect storm- the SOLD feeling in junking and thrifting- what I call EXPLORING- that matches wonderful with quantity with ‘I can’t believe the price’ with the amount of cash in the pocket.
The flea market I frequent did just that one weekend about 2 years ago. Boxes (I bought 3) of mismatched, tarnished silverplate, all for $80.
And so my treasures sat, until I began the process of going through the boxes and pulling out what I wanted to clean first.
Those boxes produced most of this.
This pattern is one of my favorites.
But then so is this.
But then I also like this (and these, and these…).
I have a real fixation on bread and butter knives, completely unrelated to the fact that I enjoy bread and butter. That is NOT a good fixation.
And then there are teaspoons. I have a real respect for teaspoons- the workhorse of all flatware.
But then I love salad forks- and serving pieces.
I mean who thought of creating slots in this spoon in the shape of a flower?
Sigh…I give up.
Go see Beth at Gypsyfish Journal for more Silver Sunday treasures. Thank you Beth.
