It's Silver Sunday and I've been busy cleaning silver....again. It's all Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal's fault ;o). Be sure to visit Beth and all the other ladies who have been busy cleaning their silver. So this is what I cleaned this week.
2 silver spoons that I have no idea what they are used for. The one on the left could be used as a sauce spoon. The one on the right is from my mother-in-law and she used it when she served cranberries. Update: I just visited Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen. She has one of these spoons-its a bon-bon spoon. Love it.
My baby fork and spoon set. The spoon at the top is my husband's baby spoon.
Grown-up meat fork and soup spoons to match. I don't know how that happened!
My "still a young child but never used set".
A silver pencil laa dee dah, and my Huckleberry Dog spoon. We ate a lot of cereal to get these spoons. My sister got a Yogi Bear spoon. Boy those were the days when companies gave out the good stuff.
This is a sterling silver wine stopper. My husband, son and I took a trip to Sweden and Denmark. We were shopping on the Stroget (the famous walking street) when we came upon Georg Jensen Silversmith Shop. Well what's a girl to do, I had to go in. And since I collect Roosters, this one was not staying behind.
Our home base on our trip to Scandinavia was Malmo, Sweden. We walked everywhere. Everyday we passed a jewellery store where this Viking and his ship were in the window. Everyday I stopped and looked. He was calling my name. I listened.
This week's jewellery treasure is a handmade sterling silver and pearl bracelet. So much fun to make.
Thank you for visiting. Please come again.
