Ready for Spring?

I am!

    I went out last weekend to the flea market at our church, and then to the SA store and got some new treasures! This glass bowl/silver candleholder was just $1.00! I filled it with some shredded paper, white daisies, and some sweet spring eggs.

Silver toast holder for 99¢

      I looooove this silver spoon  - it came with a glass tray for          $2.75. I am using the tray in my bathroom medicine cabinet. The design is so pretty!

     Blue jars remind me of the sky on a clear spring day.

Sweet plastic birds are SandP shakers!

Why...what's that in this little apothecary jar?

It's a tiny blue egg in a nest!

  I started taking photos of my treasures outside, but it got windy      and knocked my mirror over so I moved it all into the screen porch. Isn't this mirror pretty? It's made of heavy resin and the sides are hinged. It says "Italy" on the back and was only $3.99 at the SA store. What a find!

I love the silver reflected in the mirror.

Just some closeups.

      Here's a link back to Gypsy Fish Journal. Special thanks to Beth for hosting Silver Sunday!

Thanks for stopping to visit - have a wonderful Silver Sunday!

Love the detail in that spoon! The little silver birds are darling! I have a silver toast rack that I use on my desk to hold some computer disks.

You found some wonderful vintage items for Silver Sunday. I love the English toast holders...they are just so Victorian and civilized. The aqua colored Ball jars are really eye catching too.
