latest find...

                   First of all, a huge thank you to these sweet, supportive bloggers for featuring
                             my barstool slipcovers and coffee table makeover this week!

                                                      Lindsey @ Better After
                                               Kristin @ Uncommon Slice of Suburbia
                                              Debbie @ Debbie's Blogging & Blabbing

   I'm not much of a collector of anything, clutter gives me hives, but I've wanted to add to my
                                collection (three pieces) of silver trophies and pitchers,
                    and found the perfect piece at Goodwill for $8, and now it's complete.

                  Since they're so formal I like to pair them with either rustic or modern items.

                                                                        
                    I like accessories more edited than this, but wanted to show you all the pieces.
                                            The one on the right is my newest find.
                                        Silver trays are a dime a dozen at thrift stores,
                             the other pieces can easily be found, just not quite as plentiful.

                                           Here are a few ideas for displaying silver...
                              
                                                        ~   in your kitchen  ~

                                                  ~   in a cabinet or on a shelf  ~
                                 the addition of greenery is the perfect contrast in texture

                                                  That's my simple collection of silver.

                  Check in tomorrow for answers to ???? I've received on miscellaneous projects,
                            a good Thanksgiving tip I forgot, and what I put in the advent boxes.

So pretty, I love a pretty pairing of classic silver and rustic leaves. I am with you on not being able to handle clutter around the house.

Everyone already said what I was thinking... that the silver looks so good with the rustic elements. Thank you so much for your sweet comment today :)
