Silver Sundays

I am joining in with Beth from Gipsy Fish Journal for the first of her Silver Sundays. It just seemed so appropriate because this year I fell in love with the colour grey, gray, silver or whichever name you like to call it. It's soft and warm, yet a perfect background for many pops of colour! Don't forget to click on the banner on the side bar to see the names of all the participants in this wonderful event!

These are some of my favourite new grey vignettes. Be sure to visit everyone who has signed up!! I can't wait to see what my friends have for their first Silver Sunday!!!!

Love your Silver Sunday photos. I told you before how much I enjoy the goodies you keep on your kitchen counters, but I'll say it again. They're so cool!

My Silver Sunday post goes up at midnight. You've inspired me to "scape" more in my next one. Thank you, my friend.

Happy Sunday.

Hello Margaret ~We share similar taste for so many of the same creative design elements. This Sliver Vignette is so gorgeous.
When winter landed on our provided me the motivation for a few indoor DIY projects.
It's wonderful how inspiring blog friends as yourself can be, that's why I love returning the gesture, by sharing cooking or craftin' ideas too.

I've joined your followers today.
Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,
