A Few Silver Goodies and 200 Followers

There are just some things that I am naturally drawn to. I often find myself being pulled towards silver items in thrift stores. Sometimes the items are real silver and other times not. I still enjoy the sparkle they provide!

In one shopping trip I found a 3 tiered server, a large pitcher and a small serving bowl. I just LOVE the tarnished look! I was trying to decide which I should buy when I came to the conclusion they all really needed to come home with me!
I wanted to give them all a new life, some big and some small.
I took the small bowl and simply added some moss. I used some crumpled up newspaper and glued it under the moss to give it some fullness. I love love love the feel of the moss against the slightly tarnished silver!
For the tiered server it was a pretty simple makeover. I just cleaned it up and shined it up a bit (it was really nasty looking). Adding some Christmas ornaments turns it into the perfect amount of holiday bling!
I took the large pitcher and added some other items that I took from this little beauty which was also a thrift store find.
And I came up with this….
I really am in love with the way it turned out! When this sold at the Holiday Bazaar I almost cried! Somethings are just hard to sell….but I have another project on the horizon that should make me feel better!

I would also like to mention that I have officially made it to 200 followers!!! These milestones are so exciting to me and I’m loving every minute of reaching them! I can’t thank all of you who are following me enough! It may not seem like a big deal to you, but every single comment and kind word make my day!!! Thank you all!!!
