Silver Sunday #5

Here we are, another Silver Sunday! Thank you to our hostess, Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal, she has a whole lot of participants this weekend joining the fun. It may take me all day and most of the week to catch and visit everyone, but that's the fun part. Grab your coffee and sit back and enjoy. Beth has a wonderful post about her Grandmother's chatelaine, it is so beautiful, you will want to see it.
This is my husband's Auntie Limer's silverware....... I don't know much about it, except it is very pretty and she had it for a long time. The Dutchman tells stories about riding the bus to visit her for tea.

It is so interesting to think of the tales the silverware could tell...........

Margeret your husband's aunties silverware is lovely. I think that is awesome that you both ended up with such a pretty service. Your hubby must have been a well behaved little nephew.

Oh My, Your Silver looks very similar to My Gramma's Old Silver that I showed last week (but Mine is Not Shiny & Bright~ Mine is Very Tarnished)
Happy S.S.

Hi Margaret,

I adore your beautiful silver heirlooms, such a beautiful pattern.
Is that three thimbles I can see?
I have a silver thimble I use all the time when I am sewing.

Hello my dear Margaret, the silverware is so beautiful and all the way from Holland hihi. I had also taken pictures of my cutlery, it's comes from my grandmother. Only I hardly use it, cause I don't like to polish hihi.
Soon I show it in a post.
Now I enjoy your beatiful cutlery.
In Holland it is still snowing.
Have a nice day.
Warm regards, Mea

Oh it's beautiful!!! I hope you use it :)
I don't have a set but one day will by way of an aunt and uncle with many sets...but I'd rather have the aunt and uncle for sure!!!
Yes, if only it could talk...what was on the menu I'd like to know...

I always like things with a story. In this case the 'things' are already gorgeous themselves, even better with the story. You can set a beautiful table now, even the shakers are there! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, mmm I have to find out whether my husband still has an aunt somewhere ;-)!

Sherrie said...

Hopefully you are staying warm up there. It was 26 today and that felt like a heat wave. Don't you wish our treasures could talk and share memories. What would they say?

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful set of silver. :) Happy (belated) silver Sunday. xo Lynn And thank you for the compliment on my blog banner. I don't think most people have even notice I made some changes. I wanted to do something different for 2010. Hope you are having a super great week.

Margaret amor, what a beautiful set, I love seeing what treasures everyone is sharing, especially when they have a family history, I don't really have pieces like that, but I am hoping that one day my grandchildren will hold the pieces that I have and love and say..This belonged to nona Rose :) Besos, Rose

ps..sorry it's taken me so long to visit silver sunday, but getting over a bad cold/flu and I am finally getting to start visiting everyone :)
